Announcing Summer Giveaways
I made the Medditerranean Chicken with Turnips last night, and it was deee-licious! The kalamata olives really made it for me. Also, I served it over brown rice (which I cooked in the leftover chicken stock to give it more flavor) instead of couscous. So yummy. We have leftovers, and I can’t wait for lunch. I may even eat it for my second breakfast.
Now, for those of you who thought my big announcement is that I’m pregnant, I’m sorry to disappoint, but that’s not it. I promise I am not. In fact, since I’m taking drugs to help me feel better, I have taken two pregnancy tests recently just to be sure I was not inadvertantly feeding codeine to a new baby H.
The big news is that I am launching summer giveaways here at Whole Living Gal. If you have ever thought about moving toward a healthier lifestyle, but just need some tools to get you there, now is the time to jump on board. And who doesn’t like free stuff?
I’m so excited because the school where I studied Holistic Health Counseling – the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in NYC – has sent me a 25-lb. box of goodies that I’ve decided to give away to my oh-so-lovely readers here at Whole Living Gal. I loved IIN when I attended, but I just keep on loving that school because they take care of their graduates. I mean, what school sends alumni a 25-lb. box of goodies for FREE?!
I would be remiss if I did not mention IIN’s new Distance Learning Program. When I attended, I flew to NYC once or twice a month for about 10 months in order to get my certification(I know, rough life, right?). But a few months ago, they launched an awesome program that allows you to study the same great information from the same great teachers from the comfort of your home. In fact, this program is so great, that the school is only hosting one more session of live classes (starting in January). If you’ve ever thought about the live classes, now is the time to attend. But if you’d like to jump on board the distance learning track, now is the time, because they are offering it at a discounted price. Either way, if you call to sign up, mention me, Heather Hammond, because you will receive a discount!
Onto the giveaway!
Have you ever walked into a health-food store only to get hives, panic attacks and a severe case of being overwhelmed? I mean, there’s the regular stuff like produce and organic milk, but then there’s seaweed and millet and flax – where in the world do you start and what in the world do people do with kombunchu?
IIN created a DVD that walks you through a health-food store and clarifies products and how to manage your way through the aisles. The inside of the DVD cover reads:
Integrative Nutrition Healthy Shopping will familiarize you with the wide array of products and produce found in health food stores. From seaweeds to cooking oils, from herbs to soy products, this DVD demystifies it all.
When I first started eating well, this DVD helped me sort through all the products. I often shop at a regular grocery store, not a health-food store, but most regular stores are now carrying more specialty items – so no matter where you shop, this DVD will be so helpful!
I’m giving away a copy of the DVD to one lucky reader!
