My Big Fat Contest

Good morning! If everything is going right, this is auto-posting while I’m living up my 4-day weekend, getting my long run in, refueling with oatmeal, and doing my laundry. If that’s not entirely the case, it’s because I’m forgetting to do my laundry–go do it, Evan!

Remember my big fat post? Well it got a spin-off(think Private Practice from Grey’s Anatomy) and this is it! I’ve been loving my coconut oil as of late; I’ve been eating at least a tablespoon a day through delicious sources:

Raw Vegan Chocolate

Coconut Oil Peanut Fudge

Probiotic Chocolate Avocado Pudding With Raw Chocolate

. It’s also been increasing my cravings for movie theater popcorn tenfold, but lets skip over that nasty side effect.You might have read my official review of it:

Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil

9.5/10: This one gets a gold star from me; this was everything I could ask for a coconut oil product and more. After reading about how it was harvested and just how unrefined this particular product was on the Tropical Tradition website, I was really impressed; that’s not something you’ll find in a lot of coconut oils. The room-temperature stability was perfect for cold applications but also ease of access. And the flavor was incredibly raw and very much “coconut”. My only wish were that this be more available in stores rather than simply from the website. But I also love and acknowledge that the company has a lot of sales and specials for members and you can get an incredible deal on this better priced than any store product if you wait for the right moment.

Now it’s time for the giveaway! Tropical Traditions has an amazing line of just about anything you could need on their website. They also have a neat recipe website utilizing the benefits of coconut products. Best of all, they have a newsletter, facebook page, and twitter account to let you be an insider and get some amazing deals on any of their products. You know me; I’m all about coupons and sales. Remember when I got 2 4-packs of Steaz(regularly $4.49) for a grand total of $2.49 with sales and a Whole Deal coupon? That was a good deal. And one of the great things about Tropical Traditions is that they’re always running sales and specials so if you play your cards right you’ll get their products for less.

This is your chance to win a 32oz container of Coconut Oil for free!
