Friday Five + a GIVEAWAY

I know I said this would be a 3-in-1 post, but it’s going to be a 2-in-1. It’s NOT because I don’t have a recipe ready (I do!), but the post would be ginormously long and so many things on one blog post was aesthetically unpleasing and kind of sensory overload, so I’m saving the recipe for next week. But I think you’ll be happy with my weekly list and the special treat at the end! :)

1. “Where do vegans get their….?”

This is a great resource from The Wellness Warrior. If you’re a vegan, you’ve probably been asked where you get your [protein, iron, calcium, b12, omega 3s, etc]. And if you’re thinking of becoming vegan, you’ve probably wondered where vegans get their [protein, iron, calcium, b12, omega 3s, etc]. Click here to find out how to answer those questions. : )

2. More Reasons to Love Kale

It’s likely that if you’re reading a healthy food blog, you’re probably a longtime rider of the Kale Train. But in case you needed more reasons to eat the amazing leafy green, here you go.

3. 25 Clever Ideas To Make Your Life Easier

A friend of mine posted this on her FB, and I just loved it. I don’t have as many home-related things on the blog, but I often describe the Rebel Grrl Kitchen as a practice of “reclaiming domesticity,” which, in addition to cooking/baking and healthy living, includes organization and household stuff. So enjoy this list for tips on getting your home organized (and there’s a few cute food-related things too…Like these awesome cookie bowls, which I’ve been wanting to make forever!).

4. CCK’s Copycat Reese’s Easter Eggs

I just adore that Chocolate-Covered Katie. I’m sure many of you are familiar with the queen of healthy desserts, who never seems to fail at providing amazing (often sugar-free, gluten-free) vegan desserts. Her version of Reese’s peanut butter eggs are no exception. There’s an option to make them sugar free, and, of course, you can use fair-trade chocolate to make this copycat recipe ever better.

5. Local Food boost in farm bill

Good news on the local food front. The new farm bill in Congress “would help meet the needs of farmers who supply the local food system and help consumers access that supply — including making it easier for schools and institutional buyers to purchase locally grown foods and requiring that various federal grants and loans be made available for local food-system development.” Read more about it here.


Wait! Don’t go! I’m not done with you yet!

As I noted on Monday, I wanted to commemorate my 100th Rebel Grrl Kitchen blog post with a giveaway for you lovely readers. And what better things to give away than some of my favorite products—a Rebel Grrl Kitchen Staples Kit, if you will.

If you win, you’ll receive chia seeds, a packet of my favorite raw protein powder, a packet of the amazing Vega One protein powder, a packet of Natural Calm (a magnesium powder supplement that I swear by), and a Carrot Cake Larabar (theme-appropriate for Easter, of course).

Maybe you always wondered about those magical oats I make, but didn’t know where to buy chia seeds. Or maybe you never wanted to buy that giant tub of protein powder to add to smoothies (like this one), without first tasting it. Or maybe you want to try the Vega One protein powder, because you’re intrigued by the Brendan Brazier Thrive program I sometimes talk about. Or maybe you just couldn’t believe that something sugar-free, sweetened only by dates, could actually be delicious (enter Larabar). Or maybe you remember me mentioning my nightly ritual of drinking Natural Calm (“Natty Calm”), which aids in detoxification and elimination (especially good during a cleanse, but I use it all year).

Now you can try them all!

Leave a new comment for each thing you do (stating what action you took) to increase your chances! I’ll pick a random winner and announce it on Monday!

Happy 100 posts! Hooray! Have a great weekend!

    Hello Hello! I am new to Clean, having just completed 21 days, and now I found your blog. Looks like it’s full of great stuff, so hello from a new fan!

      Congrats on your first 21 days! And I’m so glad you stopped by! My recipes are almost all Clean-approved (except that I add in bananas pretty consistently after clean is over. My favorite fruit! ;) ), so I think it’s a pretty good resource for those of us wanting to eat well even when not cleansing.

      Thanks Jamila! I just clicked on your blog link and checked out your articles tab. So much great stuff…I love finding fellow health-conscious folks who know it’s important to examine the intersections between wellness class, race, gender, etc. I’ll be frequenting Beyond Black & White!

    I saw that cookie bowls post a while ago on Pinterest and I thought it was a great idea. Can’t wait to try it! They would be great with ice cream. :)
