My Favorite Things Giveaway!

Thank you everyone for participating in the most popular giveaway on HP… ever! Congrats to Karina for taking home the prize!


I’ve been collecting things…

and not just any things, my favorite things.

There’s instant coconut water that I like to use in my homemade electrolyte mix or post workout popsicles.

Some LARABARs that I like to break up over oatmeal, make into rice pudding, or just snack on in the car.

There’s a bit of stevia, used frequently in our house for a touch of sweetness in green juices, muffin tops, and protein cakes.

A good amount of Simply Bars, the protein bar that made my trip to India possible.

A package of Elixo powdered tea, my savior when I start to feel under the weather. One cup of this stuff and my immune system thanks me instantly. Holy antioxidants, batman!

Last but not least, the Shake & Go Smoothie mix that I’ve relied on countless times to pump my body full of vegan protein power is in there too.

And now that I’ve collected it all, I’m giving it away to one lucky reader!

    If I were to assemble a basket of my favorite things I would first include a lip balm and face wash from Bubble and Bee. I’ve been using the Rude Raspberry balm since Christmas and I love it. I just bought the Pineapple Enzyme face wash and I’m super excited to use it; I just finished off her Cool Cucumber face wash. Bubble and Bee prides themselves on making beauty products from natural, organic ingredients. Stephanie, the owner, majored in Chemistry and she knows her stuff! I love their products. So that would have to go in my basket. I would also include a jar of coconut oil, because I can’t go a day without that! And I think I’d also have to include an assortment of Larabars. Last weekend I discovered a bar soap from a local soap maker that contains mud! It smells great, has just the right amount of scratchy for exfoliation and it lathers brown! It’s so fun! So that would also go into my basket. I would toss in a Gymboss Interval Timer too, because I love that thing and I haven’t completed a workout without it. And finally, I would add a gift card to Lululemon.

  171. Dark chocolate, cacao nibs, freeze-dried organic fruit (pineapple, strawberries), quinoa/sesame/honey bars, yes, bourbon vanilla, Justin’s maple nut butter, Amazing Grass Orange Dreamsicle greens powder, KAL organic stevia (least aftertaste, and organic, and one of the long-standing distributors before the Big Food companies jumped on the stevia bandwagon adding erythritol and other nondesirable additives), some organic lip balm (any citrus flavour), organic body lotion (any fresh scent), some space-clearing incense, and kale chips!

  172. A box of my favorite things would include organic peanut butter, tons of fruit, a variety of cheeses, tons of sweets such as chocolate, cupcakes, etc… a variety of nuts, and that’s all I can think of at the moment :-) There is definitely A LOT I would include though!

  173. Interestingly enough, I’m currently doing a goodie bag giveaway on my blog too! It includes Vega Protein Powder, Larabars, Natural Calm, and chia seeds! I think the only thing missing from my list of must-have staples is Almond Butter!

  174. my favorite things basket would include : baked lentil chips from mediterranean foods, everybody’s nuts salt n pepper pistachios, greek gods honey yogurt, saint andre cheese, sabra hummus and red peppers, my granola, biscoff spread, barneys almond butter, and some honey crisp apples.

    #1 I Subscribed to the Healthful Pursuit RSS feed

  192. #2 I followed you on Facebook :: Like Healthful Pursuit.
    :) Happy to have discovered your page!

  193. A basket of my favourite things would include hemp seeds, tons of nuts and nut butters, dates, granola, coconut oil, larabars, chick peas, goat cheese and lots of organic tea.

  194. If i got to choose what was in my basket, there would be something involving chocolate and peanut butter and probably luna bars too!

  195. and #5 my fav things basket would have : chia seeds, agave nectar, grounded, flax seed, Vega Sport protein, glutamine, Larabar, raw honey, coconut oil, sesame oil, green tea and lots of things I’m not thinking about right now lol
    Thanks for this great giveaway :D

  196. I love TEA and would like to try the Elixo tea. And never heard of instant coconut water before. I grew up drinking tender coconut water from the coconut itself. So I excited to try the instant version. I’m making changes to my snacking habit for which the Larabars and simply bars will be great. I stopped using white sugar long ago….still contemplating on switcing to stevia or stick to sugar in the raw and agave. I’d like to try stevia before making changes to my pantry. Instant smoothies will be a breakfast treat after the workout and jogging.

  197. Already ‘liked’ you on FB, already a subscriber, and if i could make up a basket it would have Crazy Richard’s peanut butter, Bob’s Red Mill soy flour and coconut flour, organice canned pumpkin, steel cut oats, and Torani SF syrups!

  198. I’m a devoted, long-time subscriber to the Healthful Pursuit emails (and have gotten many family members to bookmark your site in the hopes that I’ll return for Thanksgiving or Christmas to find your recipes all laid out… to help remind the family I send them links anyhow!) and follow your twitter links as well (I apologize that I’m set to private on Twitter though).

  199. A basket of my very own personal favorite things? As a foodie I’d have to include packets of coconut oil, Justin’s almond butter packets (on-the-go is so incredibly useful with these kinds of foods!), unsweetened finely shredded coconut (the loveliest oatmeal booster), Larabars, whey protein packets, and green tea. Of course green tea.

    (Also, I realize there is more than one Shelby here, so I’ve added my last initial. The above comment regarding sending my family links for holiday meals and how I follow @be_healthful but am set to private, is me as well.)

  200. my box of favorites would have tons of fruit & veggies, smooth & creamy chocolate hempmilk that’s perfect in coffee in the morning, chia & hempseeds, lots of dates and stevia too.. vanilla extracts, powders, pastes & beans.. and definitely coconut oil! and some of that lucuma powder i’ve read about(not a favorite, never even tried it ha! would love to though) and kombucha!!

    that powdered coconut water looks killer! does it work well?
    there’s a little indian store up the street from my house with really cheap sorghum & millet flour & buckwheat.. I’ve seen powdered coconut water there but was apprehensive. maybe i’ll fit it into next months grocery $$

  201. I suppose as well that a basket of my favorite things would include grapefruits, raspberries, cinnamon, and an electric tea kettle (it can come in handy for so many things, from oatmeal to, obviously, gallons of tea at the drop of a dime). I would also have to throw in a small cutting board, a one-serving size ramekin (I only have one at the moment!) and a very big spoon. A small water filter (like those Brita water bottles with a built-in filtration system) wouldn’t hurt either.

  202. Added you to my Google Reader! I made your Smoky Bear salad the other day…so delicious!

  203. just followed you on pinterest.. already have a bunch of your recipes on my boards! wanna try all those cool crackers you’ve made- the buckwheat bears & banana bread animal crackers!

  204. I LOVE Larabars, so a bunch of those, plus chia seeds and maybe some Vega products thrown in would make an ideal healthy basket for me.

  205. As a college student in the midst of art school, snack bars are essential for when in the studio for overnights, on the go to shoot on some far-away location, or simply bounding between 12 hours of classes in one day. I typically go to Larabars for their nut bases and incredibly easy ingredient list. I haven’t tried many other whole-foods bars, there can just be so many I don’t know where to start! I’d like to figure out which are the best sustenance for me… and then, using the ingredient list, whip up batches myself for less! Aside from eating wholesome, not spending very much money in my budget is a huge necessity for my days.

    (Your posts relating to India have truly been so inspiring too as I understand what you mean about not needing the things in your home, of coming back from a different country and culture and looking around at all your home’s belongings and wondering why one earth you “needed” all of it in the first place… but I’ll finish this comment on the appropriate post!)

  206. and now, what would I pack in my basket?
    Well, I guess I would bake some muffins and breads such as banana bread (my absolute favorite). Then I would put in seasonal fruit and veggies and of course almond butter! What else? Maybe a nice bottle of champagne or a good red wine and some dark chocolate…
    There are just too many possibilities!

    By the way I really like your blog :)

  207. I love larabars so I would love to share those! I also think that little kitchen gadgets would be a blast to put in there too.

  208. And finally, a basket full of small Moleskine notebooks and black-ink pens would be such a delight. For good measure I’d throw in boxes and boxes of different green tea varieties (have you had coconut chair green tea? It’s really fantastic and organic and can be found here for a lovely affordable price: as well as different nut butters (any nut butter, as long as it’s unsalted or using sea salt). Perhaps some perfectly crisp apples to round out some of the nutrition too. I think I’d have to fit a small and cozy blanket into this basket so that I can take it on a picnic. That is what I call a (Try To) Relax Basket.

  209. m fav. things would include: coconut oil. blacks organic chocolate bar, raw sweet ptotato chips, organic coconut, bob mills pancake and waffles mix, thai kitchen coconut milk… mmm. im sure there would be other things…

  210. Thanks for such an amazing giveaway Leanne!

  212. I would love to add Kind bars to the basket because those have the right amount of chew.

  213. If I were to make up a basket of my favorite products to share with others it would have Justin’s Almond Butter, Almond Breeze Unsweetened Almond Milk, Amazing Meal, Chobani Greek Yogurt, Erin Bakers Grabola, Vitamuffins, and Seghesio Red Zinfandel.

  215. And here I am one last time. I actually use a few of these product already and would be so excited to get them but would be even more excited for the things I haven’t tried like that tea and the simply bars. If I had to add something to my own basket it would definitely have to include: hemp hearts (since I eat that by the spoonful), Eden organics apple butter, Guayaki iced Yerba Mate, and my favorite snack of all time: plantain chips!
    It’s been so nice reading about your trip to India, it’s really been giving me itchy feet, as always, such an aspiration!

  216. I LOVE your blog! I’ve tried many of your recipes and they are all great!

  217. My basket of favorite (edible) things would include:
