GRAND PRIZE LIST

Better Than a Box, of course!

Wise Choice MarketBone broth

Prize: Twin-pack of bone broth, winner’s choice of flavor
Value: $29.95

From the company:

At last you can enjoy delicious real bone broth, also known as stock, traditionally prepared with organic ingredients, and ready for use whenever you need it.

Our traditional chicken broth is just like homemade chicken stock: based on bones and feet from healthy free range organic chickens. Our beef broth is made from grass fed beef bones.

From Katie:

This bone broth is truly amazing; the only place you can buy what you’d make at home, if you just don’t have time. I drink it by the cup – but it would go great in many of the meals in Better Than a Box!

From Katie:

I’ve not made cheese with a kit, but the water kefir and countertop yogurt starters that I have used from Cultures for Health are awesome, and customer service is second to none!

Wrap a piece of cheese, the end of a cucumber, or half of an onion to keep fresh.

Paula’s Bread Norpro Stainless Steel Cookie Sheet

Prize: Stainless steel cookie sheet
Value: $20

From Katie:

Get rid of your aluminum or nonstick cookie sheets – stainless steel is a much safer material.

Life Without Plastic

Prize: Airtight Glass Container, round
Value: $23.95Round Airtight Glass Container with Stainless Steel Lid - Large

From the company:

This amazing round glass food container features an ingenious stainless steel lid that creates a airtight seal when its silicone button is pushed. To release the vacuum, the button simply needs to be pulled. The silicone seal inside the lid guarantees a perfect seal. The container part is made of heat resistant high quality borosilicate glass and the lid is made of 18-8 food grade stainless steel. Great for freezing leftovers!

From Katie:

We’ve really enjoyed these containers – pushing on the little button in the middle to seal is really different, but I’ve had 3 of them over a year, and the lids are still working! I broke one of the dishes, and it was replaced, no problem. Smile

My favorite is the rectangular one – I can fit so much in it, and I love that they can go right from the fridge to the oven to reheat leftovers.

Attune Foods

Prize: Reusable Shopping bag filled with 6 boxes of cereal
Value: $30

From the company:

What matters most is what’s inside –

What’s inside the box: Simple, pure ingredients that help you feel your best every day.

What’s inside you: Something different in each of us – something worth celebrating

From Katie

I love Attune’s tagline of “Simple ingredients, Simply made.” They know their stuff, rare for a food company. I mention their Erewhon brown rice cereal (not extruded, no sweetener, whole grains) as a good GF option for bread crumbs on chicken nuggets in the book.

Tropical traditions

Prize: $50 gift certificate
Value: $50, cannot be used with other promotions such as free shipping

From Katie:

There are a few things that I buy at Tropical Traditions that appear in Better Than a Box regularly, especially tomato paste and sauce in glass jars. I also love their coconut flour for grain-free baking, shredded coconut, palm shortening, and dark chocolate. They have free shipping about once a month and lots of sales, so follow me on Facebook and I try to share the best ones!

Paperless Kitchen PaperlessKitchen Starter Kit

Prize: PaperlessKitchen Starter Kit
Value: $24

From the company:

Making the break from paper in your kitchen just got easier! The Paperless Kitchen Starter Kit gives you three great essentials that will allow you to keep your kitchen looking spic and span without having to ever reach for a wasteful paper towel again:

  1. The set includes four SKOY cloths
  2. one roll of Bambooee bamboo “paper” towels
  3. 2 PeopleTowels Reusable Hand Towels

Ditching the disposables is a great green goal – my favorite use for my Skoy cloths is to put them in with lettuce to soak up the moisture and make greens last longer!
