IT’S MY BIRTHDAY! Presents… for you. {Giveaway!}

by Katelyn Block on July 30, 2012 · 227 comments

It’s midnight, which means IT’S MY BIRTHDAY!!!

Wow. I love birthdays. And holy crap, I’m not even going to tell you how old I am because that would make me feel like both the youngest person in the world and the oldest. In relative terms.

I’ve lived a lot of years (I think that starting at age twelve I started to become more adult than necessary, so let’s just say it’s my 30th birthday, okay?), and I still have so much to learn. I like to think that there are a lot of things I know well, but I still don’t know how to french braid. Or use a slow cooker. I’m guessing it’s not that hard, but still, it’s a skill I need to learn.

But when it comes to food, I’ve learned a lot. About what’s good for you, what’s bad for you, and what lies in the grey area of my weekends and late-night excursions. If there is one health myth that I would like to de-bunk right now, it’s about fat.

Fat is your friend. Fat is good. Fat should come from the most wholesome of sources and go straight into your frying pan. Onto your almond flour pancakes. Into your smoothies. Fat is yummy and good for your tummy.

Fat is also great in the form of almond butter that goes on my protein pancakes. The recipe? Super simple.

  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I used PlantFusion, which I was recently sent to try and absolutely love)
  • 1 egg white
  • almond-coconut milk until everything is stirrable (I’m kind of over the fact that it’s not a word)

Simply fry on a skillet with a nice pat of coconut oil. Mmm. Buttery.

Apartment shopping check-list. How random is this post? Slash who wants to go shopping?

The point of all of this is that I really like coconut oil. It’s great for every inch of you, and yes, you can even use it as lotion. I’m not kidding. It’s edible. And I was not paid to say that because it’s true. You all know what’s coming next. Tropical Traditions is awesome and sent me a giant tub of extra virgin coconut oil, which I will be taking (read: hauling) to Syracuse when I move back in three weeks. (!!!)

SO. I have an awesome giveaway for you. Because you are the best readers ever (I’m dead butt serious — your emails, tweets, and comments make my day every single day and give me warm fuzzies), you can enter to win a quart of Gold Label coconut oil. Doesn’t that sound so fancy? You can even make pancakes with it.

All you have to do is:

Leave a separate comment for each entry. Giveaway will close at Midnight EST on Friday, August 3rd.

What are you waiting for? Let’s eat win some stuff. And most of all: Happy Birthday to meeeeeeee!

Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil - 32 oz. Win 1 quart of Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil!

Tropical Traditions is America’s source for coconut oil. Their Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil is hand crafted in small batches by family producers, and it is the highest quality coconut oil they offer. You can read more about how virgin coconut oil is different from other coconut oils on their website: What is Virgin Coconut Oil?

You can also watch the video they produced about Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil:

 

Tropical Traditions also carries other varieties of affordable high quality coconut oil. Visit their website to check on current sales, to learn about the many uses of coconut oil, and to read about all the advantages of buying coconut oil online. Since the FDA does not want us to discuss the health benefits of coconut oil on a page where it is being sold or given away, here is the best website to read about the health benefits of coconut oil.

Happy birthday! I’m right there with you as a secretly middle-aged teenager. Goodness knows what I’ll be like when I actually break 40… That pancake recipe sounds delicious – I actually have all of the ingredients (admittedly, there aren’t too many) on hand, so I may try that come tomorrow morning!

Have fun with the apartment shopping – it’s crazy how much stuff you need to buy when you get your own place. All those little things like dishcloths and pots and pans get taken for granted when you just have them around…

Oh, and as for the coconut oil, I’d use it to bake. Cookies, muffins, scones – I bake on a regular (perhaps too regular) basis, so it wouldn’t go amiss.

Reply

Dawn July 30, 2012 at 1:08 AM

I think it’s easier to say what I wouldn’t use the coconut oil for! But I love putting it in my coffee, make up remover and lip gloss.

Jen July 30, 2012 at 2:09 AM

Ahhhh! Happy happy birthday!!! And let me just say, you look GREAT for 30…I mean really! Have you had work done? ;) I swear…you are cute as a button! And I love/will probably later hate you for posting that video. I haven’t heard that song in years! And now I’m sure it’ll be in my head for like the next 3 days!

Great giveaway doll! I love fat…ESPECIALLY coconut oil, or coconut butter, or nut butter, or…you get the picture. And that’s really saying a lot since I used to be like, “Oh hand me the fake butter spread so I can add it to my reduced fat biscuit to have along with my fat free egg whites” And I wondered why I was hungry all the time! Lol

I have a jar of TT’s coconut oil that I use for everything! I love how the coconutty flavor pops it’s way into my pancakes, muffins, breads, etc. And any time I get any on my hands, I always rub it on my elbows…can’t be having dry rough grandma elbows! Hopefully I win because I just realized yesterday that I’m about out! Eeek!

Ooh I love coconut oil! It can be quite expensive, but so worth it. I would most likely use it in my cooking to replace other, less healthful oils. If I had a BIG tub, I’d even try it as lotion, because it does always feel SO good on my hands when I use it to bake!

And happy birthday, girlie :)

I would definitely drizzle it over oatmeal or on toast–I keep reading about it all over the blog world and would love to try it for myself!

I already use coconut oil in my oatmeal and use it for cooking in my cast iron pans. Once the weather here is not so humid, I’ll be using it on my dry skin as well.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, KATELYN!!!

By the way, this is not a contest entry…I have absolutely no idea what I would do with a giant tub of coconut oil (will have to learn from you, I guess). :) Really just wanted to wish you a fabulous B-day!

Hey girlee!! Happy birthday!!! I adore your blog, you’re so pretty!! I have a quiiiiick lill’ question for you: What qualifies you to give nutrition advice?

Reply

Katelyn Block July 31, 2012 at 10:38 AM

Absolutely nothing. I have learned (and taught myself) through research and trial-and-error, but by no means should anyone take any advice from me as medical advice. Always consult your doctor before making any changes. And thank you!! So glad to have you :)

Happy Birthday!

I feel you on that apartment list, I’m doing the same thing right now. The shopping part is awesome the getting it all organized and packing all up part sucks.

And the real question is what wouldn’t I use coconut oil for. I’m pretty sure it’s a magical potion that’s good for everything.
