Giveaway: $25 Grocery Store Gift Card – Winner’s Choice – 2 Winners

February 7, 2012

One of the hardest things about starting to eat healthier is that a lot of the produce and healthier foods come with a much higher price tag and rarely have coupons. I’m happy that a few more of the Organic and Produce companies are starting to release coupons now and again.

One of the ways to save on produce is to eat What’s in Season. Over the Spring/Summer months, I post things to look for that you might be able to find seasonal savings on. It’s a little tougher to find as many savings in the winter months, though. Just keep watching for produce “loss leaders,” which are items that the stores drop to a lower price to entice you into the store, with the hope that you’ll buy more things.

I wanted to encourage my readers to eat a little healthier and am sponsoring this giveaway so that two lucky readers that win this giveaway will be able to pick a $25 Grocery Store Gift Card of their choice-the only catch is that they’ll have to buy healthier foods with it!

Even after spending several years trying to focus on buying from farmers, choosing Organic and eating healthier, it can still be hard for me to pay the higher prices. As a veteran couponer, I know how easy it is to get so much food for cheap or even free. I just keep reminding myself that in the long-run, it’s the best thing for our health. I’m glad that when I tell the kids that they can pick any one item in the store that they always choose some type of fruit. And when I stop and think that I could pay $3 for blueberries or $3+ on a bag of greasy potato chips, I’m happy to dish out the money for those blueberries.

I’m hoping that over the course of this month that you will all accept a challenge to do what you can to buy most of your foods in the outer aisles of your grocery stores. Those are where most of your healthier foods are and most of the processed foods tend to be in the middle aisles.

Remember, you can’t win $25 in healthy foods at a grocery store of your choice if you don’t enter!

I am trying to follow a low carb diet, so that leaves me open to explore a lot more fruits and vegetables. Kiwi is a fruit I don’t get to buy very often because it is usually pretty expensive considering how little you get for your money, so I would buy Kiwi.

I would buy some fruit and veggies with this. Since my Husband is diabetic I do try to keep fruit in the house but haven’t done so well with the veggies, I’d love to start having my own fruit and veggie tray in the fridge with fresh fruits and veggies on it all the time!
