The Next Big Thing

February 1, 2011

How did it go from a weather prediction of freezing rain to a gorgeous sun-soaked afternoon that warrants eating al fresco!?

BLOG-9911

I drove to the gym this morning and went to a Hatha Flow class. Yoga just feels right when it’s cloudy outside and yesterday’s class left me with an unscratched itch. My itch is STILL unscratched – but I have a few classes on my radar to go to in the next week :) Or perhaps Dave Farmar can help me out! I did really enjoy the peace that today’s class brought though – I thank the lovely yoga chant music the instructor played!

I know I should have a clear mind during yoga, but I had juicing on the brain!

BLOG-9910

It was exactly what I wanted for lunch. I always think of juice as a breakfast item, but it was very fun to have with lunch!

BLOG-9903

Celery (a lot!), carrots, ginger, apple, lemon, kale. I think this is the last time I’m going to juice with kale. I would have had so much fun eating that kale as kale chips and it barely gave me a tablespoon of juice! I actually sent it through the juicer twice to try to get more out of it!!

BLOG-9885

Of course the moose was drooling vegetables today :)

BLOG-9900

Along with my juice – I fulfilled another craving – sardines!

BLOG-9901

I have not been remembering to eat one tin a week for nutrition!

BLOG-9905

Mashed into a slice of bread (along with mayo, dijon mustard, salt and pepper) and topped with sliced bell pepper, avocado, and cilantro!

Any guesses to the next big giveaway through OpenSky!?

BLOG-9919

You guessed right! In honor of our Great Harvest to be, we like it when people mix, knead and make dough, so we’re giving away a Kitchenaid Artisan 5-quart stand mixer! The same one I have and love.

Hello Kath –

Regarding your yoga “itch” – a few online yoga sites that I’d recommend for a super strong, lovely, sweaty vinyasa flow:

http://www.yogisanonymous.com and http://www.yogaglo.com

I’m currently living in Wales, no vinyasa yoga – these websites are wonderful & they keep me “honed”! Try Kathryn Budig & Dice Lida-Klein on YogaGlo and Krista Cahill and Ally Hamleton on Yogisanonymous. : )

Reply

72 Ling February 1, 2011 at 4:13 pm

Fab give away! and even more amazing sammie! just curious- the obsession with sardines: is it the Omega-3s or the Co-Q10 that you love? it seems like you make it just like a tuna salad, no? whenever i think of sardines i think of the whole fish in a can, like anchovies…

Anyway- as a dentist- I think it’s great that this was on your list of things to do–did you know that gum disease is correlated with pre-term birth, low birth weight, and heart disease? Flossing is the Best! hope your gummies are healthy!! (also just to be a stickler- if you don’t have insurance it’s better to go to the dds and pay for the cleaning and exam then not to go and end up with a much pricier list of treatment needs)

So please don’t take this as a criticism, but since this is the first time that I’ve seen you do a more “formal” giveaway that requires consenting to a third party’s terms and conditions (including its privacy policy), I think it would be a good idea for you to disclose to your readers whether OpenSky will receive entrants’ email addresses and is getting entrants’ permission via their checking that box to use their email for marketing purposes. I also think that now that you’re doing big league giveaways in conjunction with an established company, you should have sweepstakes rules, to comply with sweepstakes law. Depending on who is awarding the prize and what the value of the prize is, there could be tax consequences and, well, not having rules is a violation of sweepstakes law. I’m sure people will think I’m being a downer, but this type of promotion is exactly what the FTC and those endorsement guidelines are designed to protect.

Reply

104 KathEats February 1, 2011 at 10:09 pm

Noted. I’ve passed this along to OpenSky. I think the biggest thing with the FTC is disclosure and I clearly stated that OpenSky was hosting the giveaway. I’ve also said in the past (and perhaps should have restated here) that the newsletter is only from me via OpenSky and emails will never be shared.

I’ve been blogging everyday, 3x a day, for 3.5 years. It’s quite amazing to think about! I’ve missed a few posts when I went on a cruise to Bermuda or when the blog crashed, but I think it’s the dedication that has made it most successful. I love it!!

I just made my first loaf of bread the other night, and it sure was a PITA mixing it with a hand mixer! :D

Kale chips are the ultimate way to eat kale!

Sardines = omega-3, calcium + vitamin D – 3 things we all need more of!

They are also a great source of protein, sustainable, shelf stable and cheap!

use the leaves of the kale for kale chips and juice the stems! also, juice broccoli stems! i quickly realized that greens don’t work for juicing (rather save ‘em for green smoothies) if you have a breville (need a greenstar or something to get more juice) but the stems are awesome!

I’m getting married in July and think this would be an amazing house warmer. :)

Thanks to you, I’m easing my way into sardines. They’re actually pretty good! Just wondering, do you save part of the tin in the fridge once it’s opened? Do you know how long an open tin will keep?

132 KathEats February 2, 2011 at 8:48 am

I normally eat a whole tin or share them with Matt, so I’ve never had leftovers. I’d probably transfer them to a little container.

I would love to have a new mixer and would pass my existing one on to my sister. Enjoy your sunshine, here in Nebraska it is below zero with snow and wind. I was in Florida on Monday and am now on my second day of not leaving the house.

Love the giveaway. Apple Green, Red and purple are my favorites. Best of luck at the dentist.

A new mixer would help my new health journey a lot.

Thanks for the opportunity.

A bright mixer sounds like a great compliment to any kitchen! Cheerful and useful. :)

Oh my gosh, I LOVE those mixers. I would never be able to afford one, but my best friend has one and she is always using it.

139 Beth February 2, 2011 at 1:09 pm

Kath, I am loving your organization posts, but I wish they were more applicable to small apartments. I have the problem of too much stuff, not enough space, and I definitely don’t have the option of basement storage or turning an extra bedroom into a closet in a 650 sq. ft. apartment. Do you have any recommendations for decluttering or small storage? Thanks!

140 Tami Jo Eaton February 2, 2011 at 1:11 pm

Oh Kath, I would so love to win that mixer and I am in agreement with you, that green would be so cool. Everytime I hit the thrift store I search out anything green.

Breville’s are no good at juicing greens. You’d be better off blending it up.

That Kitchenaid is beautiful. :-) I love your silverware; where did you get it? C&B?

Good guess :) But it’s Pottery Barn’s Luna line.

I am new to your site. That is a GREAT giveaway. I have always wanted a Kitchen Aid, but never had the extra “dough” to buy one. I think the Tangarine or Green Apple colors would be so bright and cheery to look at everyday.
