WIAW: Want your own MEGA BOX?! {giveaway}

Helloooo there!

I wanted to thank you all for the encouragement and congratulations on my race on Monday! As I mentioned (or basically SCREAMED about on Twitter!) I ended up coming in 3rd for the women overall and 1st for my age group!

And guess what….the rain held off! It ended up being a beautiful morning. So needless to say I’ve been riding a running/racing high for the past day or two. Stay tuned for my FULL race recap this Thursday!

Before I get this WIAW party started for this week…I just wanted to share my weekly dose of fun tweets! (Speaking of Twitter, you may have noticed a bunch of repeat tweets from account yesterday/today! Sorry about that! Something was wrong with my Twitter!)

    I’ve never tried any baking with an alternative flour, so I’m interested in trying all of them, especially since the recipe book is included!

  2. sarah says

    Aahhh! You did so so well in your race!! I mean, I TOTALLY knew you would though :).
    You should be incredibly proud. How many people get to say they WON a race?!?
    Can’t wait for your re-cap.

    Umm, all those grains sound awesome. I’d especially like to try kamut, amaranth and teff- I’ve heard great things about them, but unfortunately never been able to find those ones.

    I’ve really always wanted to try Kamut, and would love to try the other flours as well!

    I like how we both share an addiction to laughing cow cheese wedges. Why do they pair so well with just about everything????

    Have a great day!

    I’ve been wanting to try Farro for awhile now after seeing a bunch of recipes on blogs! What a great giveaway! Congrats on your race!

    I am a fan of races so long as I don’t run horribly slowly in them. In that scenario I just want to curl up at the finish line and die. But what did I tell you in your case – top 3 finish and I predicted it. Can I have a medal for doing that ;) No, seriously, now I have to live vicariously through you and your speed!

    I’ve tried to have protein powder on things rather than blended in before but I always choke on it or sneeze it everywhere…for some reason it’s just too dusty for me to eat when it’s separate like that, but I know plenty of people who can eat it that way just fine. Oh well, obviously I’m just weird (but we all knew that…)

    Congrats on your race! That is so awesome! I am a huge fan of Bob’s Red Mill and have only used Quinoa out of the bunch. The first one I’d try is Kamut because I have no idea what to do with it and I love a creative challenge. Thanks for the giveaway :)

  7. says

    Congrats on the race! And yay for no rain during it!

    I’ve been loving raw honey lately so when I saw some raw whipped honey with cinnamon I just had to try it…and for the record, it’s even tastier than it sounds!

    I love races. I have done 20 this year so far. Seriously. Love them! It is the only speedwork I do ;)

    I have been trying tons of good new things b/c I am doing an elimination diet – no gluten, no dairy, no eggs. I have sound some awesome new healthy food bars for snacks from Simple Squares, Jimmy Bar!, Papa Steve’s, Square Bar, Kate’s Real Food and more great stuff from Brad’s Raw…

    I would love to make some millet!

    I love races, I train to race and it is so nice to see a PR that all my hard work is paying off. Getting shirts. metals, and trophies is fun too!

  10. Jennifer says

    I am a fan of races. I would rather a medium size race,as I am not a super fast runner,but like to be middle of the pack :)

  11. Jessica @ OrganicallYou says

    I don’t race… yet. Getting my time and pace better right now :) I do love Bobs Red Mill products and would love to win!

  12. says

    Races are always run (unless the weather is psycho!). I get nervous in the days leading up to them, but always end up enjoying myself. Congrats on a great race!!

    WTG on winning your age class! These tweets are hilarious…”Before” model LOL!

    I used to live an hour away from the Bob’s Red Mill and miss it so much since we moved down south a few years ago! I would love to try the Amaranth. All of these sound fabulous and can see myself making lots of hearty soups with these! Thanks for the giveaway :)

  14. rachel says

    wowie congrats on the race! i hated running the mile in high school so i assume the same if i ever did a race or marathon, but i suppose it’s a different situation! your food is always so pretty and colorful!
