Gluten Free Subscriber Giveaway

Since I am moving towards video blogs instead of text articles, I am trying to build my YouTube followers.

I have a lot of gluten free sample products laying around.  I am going to give them away to one of my YouTube Subscribers on March 15th, 2010.

Please subscribe to my YouTube Channel and leave a comment on this video.  I will randomly pick one subscriber to receive the gluten free “goodie-box” on March 15th.

Thank you!

The Winner Is….

Free Betty Crocker Gluen Free Coupons

As you have probably heard by now, Betty Crocker released gluten free dessert mixes! You can now make your own brownies, cookies, and cakes with mixes from a very respected company.
I have a few of these boxes in my kitchen that I have yet to bake. I’m not much of a baker or dessert eater, so I have yet to attempt these. I’ll post a review once I try them… the chocolate chip cookies are now looking pretty tempting.
Anyone can call General Mills Consumer Services at 1-800-446-1898, then select option #4. Tell them you are interested in trying their new gluten free mixes, answer a few questions about how you eat gluten free, and they will send you the coupons.

Easy as pie… or should I say- Easy as Gluten Free Cake!

Buy GF Bumper Sticker, Win iPod

I love contests and giving away free things!

Purchase a Gluten Free Bumper Sticker and you will be entered to win an iPod.  We decided to use an increasing prize scale for this contest.  The more awareness that is spread, the more we have to give back to the gluten free community.  Each gluten free bumper sticker purchased gets you an entry into the drawing.  Buy them for your friends and family!

The prize starts at a 1GB iPod Shuffle, increases to a just released 4GB iPod Shuffle, and ends with an 8GB iPod Nano.  You will have your choice of color… but we recommend green!  If we so happen to go well beyond our modest goal, we will jump the prize to a new 13″ MacBook Pro.  So, help us reach the highest prize level by sharing the contest with all of your friends… and all those people on Twitter and Facebook that you call friends! Keep an eye on the progress bar below for a daily status update.


Macbook.The contest will end on August 31st, 2009 and the winners will be chosen at random and announced on September 1st.  At each prize level, we reinvest the proceeds and buy a bigger prize, so the goal is spread as much gluten free awareness as possible.  There are still 3 million Americans undiagnosed!


Bloggers, Tweeters & Facebook users: Please help spread awareness! We only have a limited amount of time for this contest.

Thank you!


Free MGC Giveaway Contest

I can’t “love” many of my favorite foods anymore, but after switching to gluten free, there are two things I do love: Mary’s Gone Crackers and hearing other people’s stories.  For the next month, I am able to combine the two!

The Contest: Answer as many, or as few, of the following questions as you wish.  EMAIL your answers to me.  I will post them as a new article on my blog so that others can enjoy and learn from your story.  After many submissions, a third-party will then select which three responses they enjoy the most and another three as runners-up.

The Prizes: The first three selected will receive a box of Mary’s Gone Crackers goodies!- including Mary’s Gone Crackers in original, Caraway, Black Pepper, Herb and Onion and Sticks & Twigs in Sea Salt, Chipotle Tomato, and Curry.  Please visit their website for more information on these great products.  The runners up will each receive a Gluten Free Awareness Wristband.

The Questions: Recently, my sister had to interview someone and write a paper on a food related business.  My answers can be found HERE.  Here are your questions to choose from:

  1. What are your favorite restaurants? Are these different than before you followed the diet?
  2. Are food industry workers knowledgeable about Celiac disease?
  3. Do you trust that the food you receive from restaurants/friends/family members is gluten free?
  4. What were some things you believed about Celiac disease that have proven false?
  5. What precautions do you take when eating at family and friends’ houses?
  6. What is the biggest difficulty with having Celiac Disease?
  7. What are the foods you missed the most?
  8. Does your significant other/friends eat gluten free with you?
  9. If you initially did not follow the gluten free diet.  What made you change your mind?
  10. Has Celiac Disease affected aspects of your life other than your diet and health?
  11. Why did you start your blog?  What are your goals with the blog?*
