Some Super Snacks + a GoodBelly

I have a confession to make. A really big-deal football game is coming up soon and I have no idea who’s playing. This is especially embarrassing since I live in Texas (football is HUGE here) and the big game is in Dallas this year. However, just because I don’t follow the game doesn’t mean I won’t be tuned in to my TV come that fateful first Sunday in February. Hey, it’s a cultural phenomenon! Plus, the game is a great excuse to get together with friends, whoop and holler (I usually cheer for whoever has the ball at the moment) and eat snacks for hours on end. Keep reading for a chance to win a little GoodBelly goody. This year, we’re going to have a few people over and I plan on making either this great turkey chili or these stuffed potato skins and a big bowl of guacamole. I also like to have a bunch of easy snacks on the side and here are a few new products that I’m super-excited to add to my lineup: evol Mini Burritos

  • Made-from-scratch mini burritos with less than 190 calories each
  • Fresh ingredients all wrapped up in a traditionally made tortilla
  • Cheese from the milk of cows not treated with rBST
  • Free-range chicken and beef from cattle raised without antibiotics and added growth hormones
  • Make a party tray with a selection of all the flavors: Chicken, Bean & Rice, Veggie Fajita, Chicken & Black Bean and Shredded Beef

Family-Sized Veggie Pirate’s Booty

  • Re-sealable 10-oz, family-sized bag sold exclusively at Whole Foods Market®
  • Baked rice and corn puffs with a deceivingly delicious blend of spinach, kale, cabbage, carrots and broccoli
  • Gluten free and trans-fat free

Laurel Hill Kettle Cooked Potato Chips

  • A Whole Foods Market® exclusive!
  • Kettle cooked in small batches which makes for a big crunch
  • Gluten free and made with no preservatives and no trans fats
  • A tasty selection of flavors—Sea Salt, Sea Salt & Malt Vinegar, Jalapeno, Sea Salt (40% Reduced Fat), Barbeque (40% Reduced Fat) and Cracked Black Pepper (40% Reduced Fat)

Another confession…I’m not a huge snacker in my everyday life. So, after an evening of munching and crunching my way through an entire football game, I’m sure my belly will be asking for a break! That’s why I plan to be prepared with these new GoodBelly Probiotic Drinks. You could even give the “shots” to your guests as “party favors” on their way out. GoodBelly Probiotic Fruit Juice Drinks

  • Dairy free, soy free and vegan
  • Uses a base of organic fruit juices rather than yogurt
  • Contains 20 billion live and active cultures per serving (at time of manufacture)
  • Uses their patented probiotic culture, Lp299v
  • Look for super specials in your store on: GoodBelly Plus Shots, GoodBelly Splash (in grab and go bottles) and GoodBelly Family-Sized Quarts

In fact, the good folks at GoodBelly are giving away a cute cotton tote bag and a VIP coupon so you can try a GoodBelly product on the house. To enter the giveaway just leave a comment below by Friday, February 4th and we’ll pick ten winners at random. So tell me, which team should I cheer for and why?

Courtney says …

I'd pick Goodbelly. Their products actually taste good and they really do work. Plus, they have some amazing flavors so you can never ever grow bored!

Ginger Fisher says …

I think you should root for the Green Bay Packers! Why you ask? Well I am originally from Minnesota, so they are rivals, but you have to root for a team that can play outside in that kind of weather!

Lisa says …

I like to watch football. I don't really have a favorite team. I'm like my son, I have favorite players on different teams. So I say cheer for the moment, the great play, the fans, the food, the Super Bowl! And the next day...cheer for the Goodbelly!

Caroline says …

I'm excited about our WFM getting the new GB Splash soon!

mimi says …

I think you should continue to cheer for whoever has the ball for the moment....that's what the party is all about! Good friends and good eats...especially when they are wholesome and made from natural ingredients! And leave the best for last of course....the Goodbelly....just so you will have a good belly when you wake up on Monday morning!!! Goodbelly probiotics are AWESOME!!!

Ron Miller says …

Being a Jet fan I'm hoping that the Green Bay Packers win. Would love to try GoodBelly, battling a cold now for 2 weeks that will not go away. Can't wait to try some of the snacks while watching the game. Thanks

crc says …

Probiotics are so good for the system! I've purchases pills to add to my diet and the good belly splash is delicious! i love whole foods and your products are the best!i usually shop daily and try a different salad after yoga or zazzercise. Your Quinoa salad is yummy! i decided to make my own and add all of my favorite veggies. i think a quino salad will be a great super bowl addition. Lets cheer for spaying and neutering and humane treatment of animals.

Barbara Bogus says …

I would live to know what health snacks I could eat while watching the Superbowl next weekend. I usually just go for the dips and chips, but there must some good healthy snacks that will not pile on the calories and still taste great. Can you please give me some hints. Thanks,

Patricia says …

Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Green Bay Packers. your suggestions are a refreshing change from standard football fare, chips, dip and beer.

Lisa Yount says …

I don't know who to cheer for either (I'm thinking... Steelers?? Are they playing in this one??) but I'm super excited about trying out the GoodBelly products! Love your blog-thanks!

Deborah Ewald says …

I live in San Antonio (far NW) and my husband and I are visiting Whole Foods today for the first time. I am going to forward your page to my daughter, who also lives in San Antonio, whose husband is from Pennsylvania and is a huge Steelers fan. They are hosting a party for the "big game" and, since she is a nurse and health "freak", hopefully she will be interested in all the items and recipes you have listed here. Go Steelers!!!!!

Tracy Thornburg says …

My whole family *loves* Veggie Pirate's Booty! And I'm so glad that it's gluten-free so my son can still enjoy it. If it was in my budget I'd buy it by the case. :) I'd love to try the GoodBelly products especially for recovering from the flu that made the rounds here last week.

Tracy Thornburg says …

Oops! Hit the submit button before saying that you should cheer for the Pittsburgh Steelers because my home team is the Lions and I just can't route for Green Bay. ;')

Veronica says …

I would love to try these out especially for free! I'm all about trying new things when they are good for you! I've never heard of the burritos before so I will definately be on the look out for them.

Laura says …

Would love to try the product - especially while watching Green Bay win!

Mia Perine says …

Maressa says …

I LOVE Goodbelly! I first tried a sample at Whole Foods last year, and fell in love!

Holly says …

GoodBelly is great stuff. i'm so glad Whole Foods carries it!

alicia marie says …

I've been wanting to try Goodbelly. I am not the to ask who to cheer for in any kind of game.

Corinna Sunderland says …

I think you should cheer for the Green Bay Packers. Because the Steelers have won the Super Bowl twice in the last five years and the Packers haven't even been to the Super Bowl since Mike Holmgren was their head coach. (they went to the Super Bowl twice with him as head coach won it once and lost it once). So I think it would be better to see them win it. GO PACKERS!

SusieBeeOnMaui (Eat Little, Eat Big) says …

I like your idea of cheering for whoever has the ball! I usually cheer for the underdog/whoever is behind.

Dana Kmec says …

Love goodbelly!!! Hard to find around here though, we seemed to have blabbed our mouth about it too much, everyone is buying it! Wish it were available at regular grocery stores!

Nancy Reese says …

GoodBelly sounds really good to drink as I enjoy drinking juice. Those evol mini burritos sound really cute. I like their small size too.

Zee says …

I love goodbelly. Helps for IBS.

Janet Mertz says …

Cheer for the Packers-so I can 'Pack' away some goodies with my Goodbelly tote bag.

Stephanie says …

It dosent matter what team wins lets just have fun!!!

Connie Williamson says …

Love your products,recipes and sweepstakes! Hope you pull my name.
