Whole Foods Gift Card Giveaway

Before I switched to dino-chow, food gifts consisted of deliciously non-nutritious things like See’s Candy and gourmet cookies. I still love food gifts, but now they’re usually delicious nutrient-dense things like grass-fed meat, organic fruits and veggies, and luscious, luscious nuts (and nut butters). You know, the kind of stuff you can find at Whole Foods.

McKinzey Crossland, one of the friendly folks at our local Whole Foods, sent me a holiday present: a gift card for me to use at Whole Foods and one to give away to a lucky reader. What was the reason behind this Christmas-y generosity? “We’d love to help you spread the word that a Paleo diet still leaves room for holiday cheer,” McKinzey told me. “Whole Foods Market can help healthy eaters find delicious, grain-free, and dairy-free options that are still full of the season’s most festive flavors.”

What’s not to love about that?


My Whole Foods Shopping Spree

I used my Whole Foods gift card to buy goodies for our Christmas Eve and Christmas Day feasts:

  • cocktail franks to make Paleo Pigs in a Blanket with Tara Grant’s magic dough
  • uncured salami and pepperoni to stuff inside Paleo Dough Balls
  • pistachios because they’re Dave’s favorite holiday nibble
  • olives because Whole Foods is the only place I can find olives packed in just salt and water β€” no additives!
  • Martinelli’s Sparkling Cider because Dave and I are still on our no-booze-no-fun elimination diet

Imagine what you could buy with a Whole Foods gift card… nibbles for a paleo New Year’s Eve party… ingredients for pork and sauerkraut for New Year’s Day to guarantee good luck in 2014… healthy foods to start a Whole30 on January 1… the possibilities are endless.
