Winning with Orville Redenbacher and SmartPop!

Thursday, January 26, 2012

To continue with my partnership with the fine folks at Orville Redenbacher let's talk some more smart snacking and (spoiler alert!) if you stick with me there's a prize at the end.

Oh snacking, snacking smart, smart snacking, however you want to say it - let's just do it.


It's a SmartPop! collage taken last weekend with my smart models Allison and JV - fun with popcorn you guys, fun with popcorn.

I also recorded a video of Allison and JV throwing popcorn at each other and trying to catch it with their mouths but I deemed it inappropriate... for now.

Moving on... so did you know that popcorn is a whole grain? I personally had no clue, I suppose the fluffy white appearance threw me off, but in all reality eating just three cups of Orville Redenbacher's SmartPop! provides a full serving of whole grain. Who knew?!?

SmartPop! is also low in fat, a good source of fiber and zero trans fats - all important factors if you're trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Do you know what else helps to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle? An awesome prize package including the following...

- A $75 Lululemon Gift Card for fitness apparel
- CamelBak 1 liter water bottle
- Resistance band
- Moleskin wellness journal
- Garmin heart rate monitor
- Two (2) boxes of Orville Redenbacher's SmartPop! Pop Up Bowl Butter

This prize package, worth over $150, can be yours by entering one or all of the ways listed below.

[Disclosure: As previously mentioned I'm working with Orville Redenbacher to help me snack smarter through their SmartPop! popcorn. While I am being compensated for my time and blog energy, these opinion are my own.]

  4. 1- I love that you are being compensated for your 'blog energy.' Haha. That phrase made me giggle for some reason.

    2- YAY! Giveaway!! I've never been to Lululemon (INTIMIDATING!), but I'd love to go. :)

    3- Popcorn is freaking awesome. But my favorite healthy snack is definitely almonds or a piece of fruit. Or guacamole. I mean, it's avocado, right? :)

    ReplyDelete
  5. Sweet giveaway. My favorite healthy snack is Popchips (maybe it's not healthy to eat the whole bag, but if Jillian Michaels says they're a good snack, then who's to argue, right? ;)

  35. Raw almonds are a great healthy snack for me (in moderation).

    But, when there's something great on the tube and we're getting decadent, we've been actually popping up some of this bowl popcorn and melting a blend of butter and Hawaiian butter. Basically, the Hawaiian butter is actual butter with pureed fruit and other stuff and comes in the flavors of lime, pineapple, passion fruit, coconut, mango or guava. Here's the link so you can see it yourself. http://likolehua.com/ It's the best thing we ever brought back from Hawaii!
