As we head into the season of indulgences … holiday parties, gifts of fudge, cookie parties, gingerbread houses, appetizer platters, and well, you get the idea … I thought a little nutrition might be in order. While you can’t negate that rum-spiked punch and those decadent truffles, you can start your day off right with a good dose of organic, whole-grain deliciousness.
One of you will win a two month’s supply (8 full-size boxes) of U.S. Mills brand cereal products of your choosing – hot or cold; Erewhon, New Morning, or Uncle Sam’s brands; flaked, sweetened, or in a bar format; gluten-free, vegan, and/or soy-free – they are all available to you!
Not a breakfast person? This prize package also lends itself useful in creating wonderful recipes, from crispy coatings to delicious snack bars (of course, some recipes are forthcoming … perhaps a week’s worth of inspirations?). How you use this jam-packed gift is up to you, in fact, the winner even gets to choose their prizes! To enter, see the full Giveaway Post on One Frugal Foodie.
But wait, there is more! The winner will also receive:
- A Patagonia T-Shirt from U.S. Mills
- A Convenient Little Coupon Keeper (perhaps with some awesome cereal coupons included?) – I have one, and it is so perfectly sized for trips to the store.
If I could win (which I can’t), I would go for the following assortment:
- Erewhon Organic Corn Flakes (so verstile) – see my review
- Erewhon Organic Crispy Brown Rice (a must for no-bake goodies) – review and recipes on deck!
- Erewhon Strawberry Crisp Cereal (we devoured this) – see my review
- Erewhon Kamut® Flakes (so unique, I loved them) – see my review
- New Morning Original Oatios (love the simplicity, but the Fruit-e-O’s are probably yummy too) – see my review
- Erewhon Maple Spice Instant Oatmeal (warm, comforting AND low in sugar) – see my review
- Uncle Sam Instant Oatmeal (cool weather, hearty goodness) – see my review
- New Morning Cocoa Crispy Rice (for my choco-holic husband) – we haven’t tried this one yet!
But half the fun is picking your own variety pack! So …
