You do the math.

That’s one awesome deal.

Just don’t tell any Math teachers that we bloggers can’t add worth beans. (We just cook with ‘em.)

I’m telling you, this Healthy Living eBook Bundle Sale is the perfect package, and I’m so excited for all of you who were kicking yourselves when you missed the first chance – it’s back!

During our last sale, Hurricane Sandy hit the East Coast, and many readers experienced prolonged power outages, were evacuated from their homes, and dealt with damage as a result of the storm, which meant that you missed out on the sale entirely.

So many of you specifically asked if there was any way that you could get your own copy of the eBook bundle that we decided to bring the sale back just for you!

And so, for 48 hours only, the Healthy Living eBook Bundle is available again! (In other words, it ends Wednesday at 8 a.m. EST! If you live on the West Coast especially, put this in your heads – you only have today and tomorrow to make a decision. By the time you go to bed Tuesday night, you don’t want to still be wondering, “Do I want to buy that bundle thingy?”)

In case you really did miss it the first time, 27 prominent Healthy Living authors have joined together to bundle 34 of their most popular eBooks, valued at just over $300, for the incredibly low price of $29, plus all purchasers will receive more than $73 of bonuses from healthy living companies. (This is even more than the original!!!)

That’s only $0.87 per book to gain inspiration, encouragement, and the practical resources you need for your own healthy lifestyle. Not to mention, it makes a great gift!

How do you gift an eBook?

Maybe you have a handful of these eBooks already. If so, you can give away the duplicates.

Maybe you already bought the bundle last time but want to buy the whole thing again and give all 34 eBooks away as gifts (’cause the salt alone is worth the price!). (See this year’s gift guide for some ideas on how to bundle the eBook with a tangible gift – mostly clutter-free! – to create super fun gift packages.) Here’s how to do it:

  1. You can e-mail the PDF to a friend. Please do not do this if you only have one copy, though. The PDFs are not meant to be shared–but can be gifted if you do not plan on reading it yourself–or already own one of the titles from the bundle.
  2. What about Kindles? Everyone who owns a Kindle has a special Kindle email address where they can send themselves PDFs to read on their Kindles! If you plan on gifting these books this Christmas, ask your friends/family members for their Kindle email address!
  3. Lastly, you can print out a book and place it in a binder. Don’t have 34 people on your list? You can always use some of these titles as birthday gifts, Mother’s Day gifts, teacher’s gifts, etc. all throughout the year! Again, just remember that one book purchase equals one book – not a license to print one for all of your children’s teachers from now until 8th grade. Winking smile

What about you? If you don’t have all the ebooks yet, and you have a “fun money” account or some “me time” your hubby has given you as part of a birthday or Mother’s Day gift, I’m telling you – THIS is what you want to spend it on. Or tell hubs he’s getting you eBooks for Christmas, and he can wrap the sourdough starter and Real Salt package. Winking smile

I’m seriously considering buying it myself just to get the goodies, even though I already have all the eBooks. That may sound crazy, but once you start doing the math…it’s really not.

And even if it is, I’m a little bit crazy anywho, so that’s just par for the course.

What’s Included in the Sale?

When you purchase the Healthy Living eBook collection, you will get instant access to each of the 34 eBooks listed below.

PLUS $73 of FREE Bonuses

Each Healthy Living eBook Bundle comes with $73 of FREE Bonuses from several of our favorite healthy living companies.

Offers include a variety package from Redmond Trading (up to $29.99 value), a 4-pack of lip balms from MadeOn Hard Lotion ($10.50 value), a FREE Sourdough Starter or Traditional Buttermilk Starter from Cultures for Health ($13 value), a $10 store credit to use on your choice of bone broth, sprouted grain breads, raw fermented vegetables or anything else from Wise Choice Market ($10+ value), and a $10 store credit towards natural toys and gifts from Hazelnut Kids ($10+ value). (See below for more details.)

Are you wondering what I’m doing in that photo? I’m not demonstrating how crazy I am…I’m just super excited about this package! No, not really. That’s me testing the Redmond Clay facial mask for the first time. You gotta try this stuff – not only does it really work, but it’s a hoot!

Please note: This collection is only available for 48 hours, from 8 a.m. EST on Monday, November 26th to 8 a.m. EST on Wednesday, November 28th. There will be no late sales offered.

I Really Use These Books

There’s so much here, I don’t think anyone can use all of the resources…at least not within the first year…but here are a few ways I really use some of the eBooks that I’ve owned for a while:

Oh, and…two of my books are included, too:

Just in time for holiday baking, try Smart Sweets for your desserts fix: 30 healthy (or at least healthy-ish) dessert recipes with unrefined sugars, whole grains, and even vegetables! Click HERE to see the table of contents and some yummy pictures.

Already in its second edition, Healthy Snacks to Go has become a go-to book for many customers (and yours truly). It’s definitely the most popular KS eBook, and for good reason: one of the hardest parts about living with real food is taking it on the go. Snacks are tough; these recipes will make them much more chewable, and delicious.

Do the math: Even if you only want these two books plus one of the bonuses, you’re already almost at the cost of the entire bundle, out of which surely you’ll get more value than a few bucks. That’s awesome.

Want to see the full list? I bet there’s something you’re pining for on here:

the books

Real Food Meals for the Whole Family

Baking, Snacks and Desserts

Homemade “Everything” (Condiments, Pantry Basics, etc.)

Grain Free and Paleo/Primal Eating

Saving Money on Real Food

Skincare and Beauty

Homesteading, Gardening and Preserving

Healthy Lifestyle

Pregnancy and Babies

PLUS, You will receive FREE Bonuses from these awesome Healthy Living companies (Over $70 Value)…

Your choice of a FREE sourdough starter, or a FREE traditional buttermilk starter from Cultures for Health ($12.99 value). Standard shipping applies (only US shipping available).
Four lip balms (2 natural and 2 peppermint), made with just three pure and simple ingredients, from MadeOn Hard Lotion. Standard shipping applies. **For technical reasons, the system requires you to pay 1 cent for the package. ($10.50 value)
$10 store credit for delicious ready-to-eat organic raw fermented vegetables and juices, wholesome organic sprouted grain bread, organic gluten free bread, real traditional bone broth or anything else in the Wise Choice Market store. Standard shipping applies. ($10.00 value)
$10 store credit towards a beautiful selection of natural, wooden, and organic toys. Hazelnut Kids only carries toys that are safe, simple, and sustainable, and gifts that encourage imagination! Standard shipping applies. ($10.00 value)
Up to $29.99 of incredible natural products from “Earthpaste” “Real Salt” and “Redmond Clay” products for FREE. Standard shipping applies. ($21.50 – $29.99 Value) Listen here…if you get almost $30 in free stuff, you totally should add $5 more to your cart to get FREE shipping on orders over $35! You’ll end up paying less than just paying the shipping for the free stuff…)
The fine print: Each bonus offer is intended for 1 order only. Transaction numbers or proof of purchase may be required at the time of redemption. All offers expire at midnight on December 5th, 2012.

25% Donation to Hurricane Sandy Relief Efforts:

We know that a tremendous number of our readers’ lives have been affected by Hurricane Sandy. Our hearts and prayers go out to each of you, and we have decided as a group of authors to donate 25% of the proceeds from this ebook bundle sale to assist the relief efforts through Waves for Water and World Renew.
This collection is only available for 48 hours, from 8 a.m. EST on Monday, November 26th to 8 a.m. EST on Wednesday, November 28th. There will be no late sales offered.
Do you have questions about eReaders, tablet or phone devices, downloading files or other technical details of the sale? Check out our Frequently Asked Questions page. Due to the nature of this sale, there will be no refunds offered.

It’s almost crazy to pass it up. I was going to write something about every book, but it would take all day long to do it justice.

Suffice it to say that the freebies are all from companies I use and love, the eBooks, bar none, are simply the best, and this is one package that will save you money every time you turn around.

Even if you own half the eBooks included already, you would still get at least $100 value from your $29 investment.

So…get over and make sure you get yours!

Note: The files total about 200MB in size, which would fit on a high quality flash drive and most computers. I make an “ebooks” file in “My Documents” so I don’t lose all the downloadable files I accumulate. Kindles and Nooks can generally view PDF files, too – check your user manual if you don’t know how to transfer files over from your computer.

Disclosure: I will receive a portion of each sale, and many of the links to other author’s books are affiliate links, so if you buy anything there I’ll probably make a buck or two as well. But this doesn’t impact your sale price in the least, so thank you for starting here when you shop!

    I am SO GLAD you brought this deal back!! I completely missed it last time and was deciding which books I would buy as I could afford them. Thanks for offering this again! I’m adding it to my shopping cart now.

    Andrea,
    Wonderful! You’ll love it! :) Katie

  • Holiday Deals « the geeky place

    [...] Another great deal. I bought this the last time it was offered and I do not regret it. This is a bundle of eBooks from real food bloggers. Instead of buying onsies and twosies you can buy many books for a very low price! Click Here. [...]

    While I understand the joy of those who missed this deal the first time. It is kind of frustrating that I did buy the deal the first time around and now it has more stuff that is included in the free items. Man. Wish I hadn’t bought it now.

    Katie Kimball @ Kitchen Stewardship Reply:

    Charmel,
    I hear your frustration, and I’m sure you’re not the only one. We authors absolutely never intended to bring the sale back, but circumstances were just kind of crazy with the storm.

    A few thoughts for you:
    1. Your bundle included Plan to Eat, which this one doesn’t, and that didn’t require paying shipping – and all of these do, so “free” is relative.
    2. The first bundle also included over $1000 in giveaway opportunities, and this one does not.
    3. You can always buy another bundle and gift the ebooks.

    In the long run, we hope that everything shakes out more or less evenly, although not precisely equally. (Oh, I also thought the first Redmond package was a little cooler – it’s all personal preference, really.)

    The sale organizers had a lot of really tough decisions to make when readers kept emailing them after the storm, and then we weren’t able to provide the exact same freebies. They did a marvelous job, really.

    Thanks for your purchase, and I hope you’re enjoying the ebooks. :) Katie

    I did buy the bundle the first time and I love all the books but there was nothing free. I thought there were over 30$ in free gifts like the offer stated but I missed the fine print where it said standard shipping applies. I think if this offer is done again it would be better to make that a little more obvious. Otherwise great stuff!

  • michelle

    I think I only got 12 books to download and you still have to pay shipping on the products, not free.

    michelle Reply:

    I figured out the book part.

    Katie Kimball @ Kitchen Stewardship Reply:

    Michelle,
    Yes, that’s true on the shipping, although that’s explained on my page and the page at Keeper of the Home. Still an amazing deal though! Thanks for your purchase, and have fun with it! :) Katie

  • Angie

    Hi Katie,

    Are you able to tell us how much Real Salt is in the Redmond package?

    Katie Kimball @ Kitchen Stewardship Reply:

    Angie,
    Sorry I didn’t see this in time to be much help – my post from Tuesday had photos though. ;) Katie

  • Jenny

    Hi Katie,
    I tried ordering this book bundle through PayPal last night and again this morning, but it would not accept my debit or credit card# and it froze up completely when I tried to use the “bill me later” Just letting you know about this, not expecting you to troubleshoot PayPal problems. I’ve paid through PayPal many times before with no problems at all, using those same cards. But I am so bummed to miss out on all those books!! What a steal that offer was!

    Katie Kimball @ Kitchen Stewardship Reply:

    Oh, shoot! I’m so sorry…darned computers. :( Hopefully there will be something similar again next fall….? :) Katie

  • Carmela via Facebook

    Christmas present to myself. Yay!

  • Becky

    I bought and paid for this bundle and have received most of my products already, but I have not received the link for the ebooks. Any idea when that happens?

Don't miss the half price offer!!
