Win-It-Wednesday: PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter – 85% Less Fat Calories!

Tuesday, September 6th, 2016

PB2I love peanut butter. But I don’t like all the fat and calories that come along with this super spread.

That is why I was so very, very excited to find PB2.

PB2 come in two flavors: the traditional peanut butter and, my favorite, peanut butter blended with premium chocolate (can you say yum?!) Both are gluten-free.

The product is made by slow roasting superior quality peanuts and then pressing them to remove 85% of the fat and oil… which produces a fine “peanut powder”. Next they add in a bit of sugar and salt (No preservatives or artificial sweeteners).

And… magically… when you blend PB2 with water (mix 2 tablespoons of PB2 with 1 tablespoon of water) it makes a super delicious, tasty and creamy peanut butter that is only 45 calories per serving with only 1 gram of fat!  This product is perfect for those on Weight Watchers or those concerned with calories.

And if the chocolate variety is your fancy, added into the peanuts are ground cocoa beans… which produces a chocolaty peanut butter deliciousness!!PB2 vs Traditonal

I love to whip-up a batch to dip sliced apples and pears into… or put a tablespoon or two of the powder into my smoothies, or atop my ice cream. The possibilities are limitless!

85% less calories and fat… superior taste… and endless possibilities are all the reasons why I picked up a couple of containers for this Win-It-Wednesday on BeFreeForMe.com. There will be two lucky winners. One (1) winner will be randomly selected from the entries received before Tuesday, September 13, 2016 at 11:59 PM EST, and one (1) more winner will be randomly selected to win from the entries received between Wednesday, September 14 and Tuesday, September 20, 2016 at 11:59PM. SO – make sure you enter two times to win!

How can you win?

Easy!

Summer is coming to a close and school days are right on our doorstep. It will be the time of busy mornings and making lunches before we know it!

And in every good lunch box should be a good snack. One of my go-to snacks are Glutino Pretzel Sticks. From the beginning Glutino has been one of my all-time favorite gluten-free brands!

Glutino Pretzels are always in my shopping basket. I love them! Not only are the Glutino products delicious, they are also a brand that I can count on. All the Glutino products are gluten-free and the most can be found in traditional grocery stores – which means less time running around to specialty or natural food stores! Glutino makes my life so much easier!

Besides the pretzels, Glutino also makes tons of other gluten-free products. The variety of products that Glutino offers is exceptional. They seem to make it all, from cookies, breads, bagels, pancake mixes, muffin mixes, frozen pizzas and convenient pasta dishes.

Glutino products can also be used as ingredients in favorite gluten-free recipes too. I use Glutino pretzels in my favorite Congo Bar recipe (check it out here!)

For this Win-It-Wednesday prize I picked up a couple extra bags of the “Sharing Sized” (that would be the jumbo 14.1 ounce bag) Gluten-Free Pretzel Sticks for the prizes for this week’s Win-It-Wednesday.  There will be two lucky winners.

Win-It-Wednesday: Tovolo Rocket Pop Molds

Tuesday, August 9th, 2016

August is here and the summer heat doesn’t seem to quit! During these dog-days of summer there is nothing better than an icy cold popsicle. When I was a kid I couldn’t wait for “Pony Boy” to come galloping down my Grandmother’s road so me and my two sisters could get an icy cold and sticky sweet Popsicle.

Nowadays I still crave these summertime treats, but was searching for a “big kid” version of the too sweet version of my childhood favorites. That is when I decided to take matters into my own hands and make my own gluten-free frozen treats… with a grown-up twist!

My inspiration to make my own Popsicles came from the Good Housekeeping website which features a bunch of recipes for make-your-own Popsicles… all in big-kid flavors, including Blackberry-Rose Ice Pops, Coconut Carrot Ice Pops, Melon Pops, Raspberry Buttermilk Ice Pops and, of course, the “Adult Only” Happy Hour Ice Pops!

The device that I used to make my own Popsicles was a Tovolo Rocket Pop Mold, which is the Cadillac, top-notch and big-gun variety when it comes to the world of iced pop molds. In fact, I loved my Tovolo Rocket Pop Molds so much I decided to go out and get two more for the winners of this Win-It-Wednesday on BeFreeForMe.com!

The Tovolo Rocket Pop Molds let you make homemade freeze pops so easily. They are dishwasher safe, food safe and are BPA free. They are also reusable, which reduces waste. But the best part about the Tovolo molds are the fun that you (and your kids too!) can have making your very own homemade gluten-free Popsicles. Plus, these pop molds are real money savers!  (And did I mention the super-cool rocket shape? What is better than a Popsicle shaped like a rocket?!)

All of these out of this world reasons are why I am so excited to share the Tovolo Rocket Pop Molds to two BeFreeForMe.com members. One (1) winner will be randomly selected from the entries received before Tuesday, August 16, 2016 at 11:59 PM EST, and one (1) more winner will be randomly selected to win from the entries received between Wednesday, August 17 and Tuesday, August 23, 2016at 11:59PM. SO – make sure you enter two times to win!
