Giveaway: “Real” Convenience Food!

JoshEWEa’s is sponsoring another giveaway with your choice of either their Popcorn Bread Mix or the Carob Snack Cake Mix! These convenient baking mixes are ones I wouldn’t mind in my house as they’re made from freshly ground sprouted wheat. And I’m not talking fresh as in they ground it a few weeks ago. They actually grind the wheat when the order comes in! As an additional plus, the rest of the ingredients are all organic.

JoshEWEa’s speaks my language.

To enter:

  • Visit the JoshEWEa’s site and leave a comment to let us know what products you’d love to try
  • After you have done the above you may enter one one time with an additional comment answering the following: “What is one question you have about becoming pregnant or about your fertility?” or if you’ve already had little ones “What is one thing you wish you would have known beforehand?”

Good luck guys – just remember you need to have a U.S. shipping address and enter before March 5 at midnight!

  1. I’m new to the whole “organic eating stuff” but I’m trying to realy give it a try! As a newbie I am liking the sound of the coconut granola cereal:)

  2. One question about getting pregnant or my fertility? Right now is…why was it so easy before my miscarriage and now 6 months after I am not pregnant:(

  3. their popcorn bread mix sounds intriguing!~ as for my fertility question, why was it so “easy” for me to get pregnant with the 3 I have (after being told I couldn’t at all) and now, 6 years later, no matter what I do, I can’t get pregnant again?

  4. Jennifer says:

    I would love to try the Almond Butter.

  5. Jennifer says:

    “What is one thing you wish you would have known beforehand?” I wish I had found this site. It took 2 years and fertility treatments to get pregnant. I had no idea nutrition could play such a big part in fertility. I also did not know how important it was after having a baby. I love your site!

  6. Awesome company! We can’t eat any of that right now as we’re grain free, but thanks for letting us know about them!

  7. There is a lot of good stuff. I don’t have the time right now to sprout my own so the sprouted berries appeal to me.

  8. I am currently pregnant with my second (got pregnant on birth control after having to go through fertility treatments for my first!). I think most of my questions relate to how diet can help control my endometriosis. I can’t find much information about diet and endometriosis unless it is from sites that are not in line with my beliefs on real food (fats and red meat are BAD, that sort of thing).

    I would love to try the oatmeal raisin cookies :)

    I wish I would have known more about cloth diapers, and natural medicines. I let my peditricians take the lead with there health and I wish I would have been more in control. I have 4 kiddos so there is plenty that I wish I would have known.

  11. I have to say that the coconut granola does sound good!

  12. What is one thing you wish you would have known beforehand? Everything I know now :) I wish I had found this blog and others like it before but I am pregnant now too and I am putting everything into practice with this one and my others seem to be healthy and I am providing them with great food now. So Praise God

  13. Christina says:

    I can’t find anything on JoshEWEs’s site that I wouldn’t like to try! Yummmm!

  14. Christina says:

    It took us 5 years to conceive — I wish I had realized what a role nutrition plays in fertility earlier. I also am glad to have some encouragement as it is hard to keep up the practice of eating healthy (esp. with a 7 week old!)

  15. I would love to try their popcorn bread mix.

  16. We have adopted two kids (as infants) and what I wish I would have known then is the real damage that consuming unfermented soy can do to the body. My daughter was raised on soy formula, soy milk, soy yogurt, soy ice cream, etc. and now at 11 years old she is obese & I can’t help but wonder if the soy (which effects thyroid) contributed…

  17. I would like to try the carob cake mix! My questions is: How long is too late for a woman to start trying? 37? 38? 39?

  18. The link to JoshEWEa’s site isn’t working right now (?). But seriously – carob cake w/sprouted flour? What more do I need to know??

  19. I wish I would have known to fight hard on introducing candy…

  20. Elizabeth says:

    Mmm, so many things look good. I think I would like to try the coconut granola.

  21. The banana nut mix sounds good.

  22. You can’t go wrong with cashew butter!

  23. I would be interested in know what amount of exercise you think is appropriate before and during pregnancy.

  24. I’d love to try sprouted flours – seems easier than soaking everything, which I generally attempt on good days. :)

  25. One thing I wish I’d have known: how to “sleep when they do!” I still haven’t figured that one out – any advice for the mom of a toddler and a 4 mo old who won’t sleep w/o being held??!

  26. The oatmeal rasin cookies sound wonderful!
    What wished I would have known is how your body changes hormonally as early as your thirties in most women. I was focusing on my career and wished that I had understood how hormones start to deplete making it more difficult, even in your thirties.

  27. I would love to try the popcorn bread mix.

    I was recently diagnosed with PCOS. I am in the “nesting” mode now. . . trying to lose a little weight before we start TTC again. We just began studying “Nourishing Traditions.” My question is what is the most important item that we can add to our diet to improve our chances of fertility when we begin trying again?

  28. Jennah S says:

    I think the oatmeal raisin cookie cereal would be delish!!!!

  29. Jennah S says:

    I wish i had known about the perils of placenta previa.. both of my pregnancies were plagued by this condition and has effectively put an end to any desires we may have had for a third child.

  30. the popcorn bread and the orange pecan cereal are calling to me :)

  31. Since we want to ttc #3 but I do not feel like I am ready yet health wise (weight, exercise, nutrition etc) what are the best ways to start to prepare your body and how long before really ttc do you need to be “ready” health wise?

  32. I would love to try so many of the items he has on his website. My first would be the wheat berries. I have not been able to buy them yet to make cream of wheat. I love and miss cream of wheat. The cereal mixes would be great to try as well, since I have not made my own yet. The organic wheat would be nice to try, since I am going to start making some bread in the near future. I will have to keep this website in mind, so I can order items I have not found in my local whole food store. Thank you for writing about it.

  33. The one thing I would like to know about getting pregnant is how you know you are getting the amount of nutrients you need. We are starting off slowly, so I don’t get overwhelmed, but what are the musts to have in your diet while trying to get pregnant?

  34. I’m really interested in their sprouted flour. A lot of the things I bake at this point are soaked but it would be great to have some sprouted flour on hand for when I am desperate for some cookies or quick breads.

  35. And I’m currently pregnant with my first so I’d say the one thing I wish I knew was how to balance trying to make good decisions (both nutritional and otherwise) without worrying too much. I feel like I alternate between being too crazy about little things and then trying to relax and being too complacent. And I have a feeling it will only get worse once the baby comes!

  36. Wow…I would love to try all their food! The butters sound wonderful! I may have to splurge on our budget and order some things.

  37. A question about pregnancy…..We are working towards getting ready to try and get pregnant.(trying to loose 10 more lbs first). Cutting out sugar has really helped! Anyway, I just watched “The Business of Being Born” and it was very eye opening. I have always wanted to have a natural birth with no pain killers! This movie definitly confirmed that for me. So, how do I even begin finding a midwife or doula? I dont really know much about how it all works and when to even begin looking for one. Any advice or books that would be helpful?
