Recipe Makeover (giveaway!)

Hi everyone! I’m [reluctantly] back from my vacation back at home and in England/Scotland! (It was so, so hard to leave…) I have about 18 posts that I need to write up for future Travel Tuesdays and a billion other things to catch up on (as well as a dance performance tonight…), but in the meantime, I’ve joined up with 40+ food bloggers to present…#RecipeMakeover!

After a long winter of snowstorms, comfort foods and desserts galore (and for me, living on the “inpatient diet” due to 80-hour work weeks followed by stuffing my face for 2 weeks straight whilst on vacation…), spring is the perfect time to get back to the basics! Most of my meals in the UK consisted of meat/potatoes and while delicious, I miss fruits and veggies (and non-electric showers ;P ).

To eat a healthier diet, you don’t need to make drastic changes (unless recommended by your doctor). It’s not about completely eliminating certain food groups and/or denying yourself that occasional treat…but taking baby steps to reduce the amount of sugar, carbs, red meats + empty calories (e.g. sugary beverages) in your meals can make a huge difference!.

A huge THANK YOU to our sponsors, who have made #RecipeMakeover possible! They’ve provided a bunch of awesome products that you can win by entering our #RecipeMakeover giveaway below!

Just follow the instructions below + you could win the following prize pack:

  • Butter-flavored coconut oil and digestive blend from our sponsor Barlean’s – Barlean’s butter-flavored coconut oil is an organic, dairy-free alternative that can be used as a 1:1 substitution for butter. (I’ve used em’ before in these Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies!) Their digestive blend is an organic, vegan combination of flaxseed, chai seed, quinoa, unsweetened shredded coconut, and a proprietary pumpkin blend, that is delicious sprinkled into salads, smoothies, oatmeal, and more.
  • Sampler pack of original, mesquite, and applewood Smokin O’s from our sponsor Smokin O’s – Instead of frying, choose a healthier cooking option like grilling! Smokin O’s is an innovative new product that allows you to add a natural wood taste even if you are using a propane grill, and they work great in charcoal grills and smokers too. No soaking, no mess, no wait – just delicious wood flavoring from a 100% natural product with no binders or chemicals.
  • 4 flatbread pizzas from our sponsor American Flatbread – Choose from any of America Flatbread’s 15 all-natural, handmade pizza varieties, available at your local grocery store. These pizzas feature 100% organically grown wheat crusts and are topped with fresh herbs, vegetables, and cheeses (no rBST growth hormone!). They’re all-natural, with no preservatives, artificial colors or flavors, and are handcrafted from scratch and par-baked in wood-fired ovens.
  • 5 containers (48 oz) of ice cream from our sponsor Turkey Hill – Ice cream for a health food event? Try out their line of no-sugar-added products for a sweet treat without the guilt or their line of light ice creams, which have a rich taste with a fraction of the fat. They also have a rainbow sherbet option, which has Vitamin C and is naturally low in fat. (Yay for tasty dessert options for special occasions!) Turkey Hill also believes in implementing green initiatives to cut down on waste, reduce packaging + minimize outputs into the environment.
  • 15 tuna creations pouches from our sponsor StarKist – StarKist tuna pouches all have at least 13 grams of protein, and their BOLD line now includes three gluten-free varieties: Tuna Creations® BOLD Thai Chili Style; Tuna Creations® BOLD Jalapeño; and Tuna Creations® BOLD Hot Buffalo Style.
  • Mueller Spiral-Ultra 4-Blade Spiralizer from blog hosts, The PinterTest Kitchen – this 4-in-1 gadget allows you to spiralize your favorite veggies, and it also has extra attachments for a juicer, mandolin and grater.

This prize pack is valued at over $200, and one lucky winner will get it all! Giveaway is open world-wide except where prohibited. A winner will be randomly drawn on April 29, at the conclusion of #RecipeMakeover! (Winner will be contacted via email.)
