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?

Jessica says …

Well my teams didn't make it all the way so I will route for whoever is losing if I even watch.

Christina says …

I LOVE GoodBelly and would love to have more of it in my life. My bestie is from Wisconsin, so I say go for Green Bay!!!!

Linda Fisher says …

I tried Good Belly a couple of weeks ago and I LOVE IT !!!! It's wonderful stuff! I had been having some digestive issues and Good Belly juice really helped! I have only tried the Mango flavor but I am headed to Whole Foods this afternoon to get more. I might just try a different blend!

Mickie Danner says …

the fruit juice based drinks sound wonderful!! Would love to try them.

SusieRosie says …

Haven't seen GoodBelly Splash before, but I LOVE their GoodBelly Plus shots!!

Kim says …

Not a football fan here but of course I have a husband who takes over the tv whenever football is on! I live near Seaworld sure wish they would put a Whole Foods out my way.(hint hint)! I have been wanting to try the evol burritos but hubby would kill me if I drove that far for food. Didnt know Good Belly has a Splash now, have tried GB before, it is helpful in many ways. Go Packers! (cuz hubby says Steelers are going to win)hehe!

Mary says …

I normally try to not eat processed foods, but like to have a stash around when I'm on the go. I have heard of Goodbelly but haven't tried their products, so this would be a good to be introduced to it. Thank you.

Meilani Clay says …

Goodbelly is so delicious! I would love a tote bag to spread the word and get more people on the Good Belly wagon. Alas, I can't help you choose a team. I'll also be using the day just to socialize and eat goodies.

Susi devrient says …

Ok, you should root for the packers because their defense is more agile (maybe they take goodbelly) and their Qb is faster than the Steeler's defensive line.

Mandy Sine says …

I LOVE GoodBelly Plus Shots!! I always feel better when I start the day with one. Whole Food is the only place, in my area, that I can find GoodBelly products. I also love the suggestions for healthy snack alternatives, especially for an event that is synonymous with a calorie overload!!

Stac says …

Good Belly is part of my daily routine try a splash in fav smoothie on your way out the door. Grew up in Pittsburgh so I say go Steelers.

Ang says …

Go Packers! I don't really follow football, but I love a good party.

Julie Mysiewicz says …

I have no idea who is playing so.....go team Good Belly!!! lol

Glen Hubenthal says …

Root for the Packers because the kicker is from Georgetown Texas. Whole Foods a whole lot of green. Thanks!

Jennifer Suehs says …

My husband, daughter and I are cheering for the Packers. We like to go with the underdog and feel that Steelers have won to many superbowls and need to give the Packers a chance.

Kathleen Conner says …

Thanks for this giveaway! Go Steelers!

Melody says …

I'll just flip a coin and say....root for the Green Bay Packers - cuz none of my teams made it to the Superbowl. I really want to try GoodBelly - I'll have to put it on my shopping list.

Shanti B says …

I should admit I am no football fan but we all love Goodbelly in our house including my toddler son. Wholefoods always carry them so we always get them from there along with all other good organic stuff !!! Go Teams! Go Whole foods and Get Goodbelly!!!

Anne says …

I love GoodBelly products, what a great complement to any Superbowl Party...

Angelique Fabozzi says …

Thank you for another great giveaway! Great idea for after the Super Bowl!!

Jonathan Suarez says …

Cheer for the Steelers since they ousted Da Bears!

Kirk says …

Wow! Thanks for this giveaway, I love Goodbelly. :)

Cassie says …

Cheer for whoever is losing-they need the help!

Ali says …

Allison- This Superbowl, I think you should cheer loud and proud for the Green Bay Packers. As a native Chicagoan, I have always respected the Packers for their ability to come through when the paying gets tough, and unfortunately, they usually beat the Bears. This Superbowl celebrate the Green and Gold Packers with a spread of delicious and nutritious snack food, but not to forget the goodbelly before and after the fight! Go Packers!

Michele Provencher says …

Thank You for your snack suggestions. Always looking for healthier ones.our nearest Whole foods store is over an hr away. Do not get there as often as I would like... Have yet to try Good Belly juices. I would very much like to. Thanks for this opportunity :)

healthy ashley says …

I've had a bad belly lately. I'd love to win!

Sandra Correia says …

Love, love, love GoodBelly. Has made such a difference in my life!

kettlesmith says …

Interesting. I like the idea of probiotics, but I have textural issues eating yogurt, just can't convince myself to eat it. It would be nice to try these. I'm rooting for Pittsburgh, because that's my league.

jessie says …

I think the greenbay packers will win, because they are the underdogs!!! Did I mention that I would love to try goodbelly:)

Sue says …

Love Whole Foods and the brands they introduce to me! Can't wait to try the Blueberry Acai GoodBelly!

Wanda Pierson says …

Good Belly is my favorite new drink. I am vegan who likes to eat out a lot, but everything is not quite as "vegan kosher" as I would like, so there is always GoodBelly to the rescue! I need to see if I can buy stock in the company.

Charlotte Moss says …

Do as I do and cheer for the commercials! It can also be cool to see a phenomenal play from the athletes. But, it sounds like you are keeping your friends and family healthy by finding nutricious recipes they will like....cheer for yourself!!!!

Megan says …

Good snacks = Good game! But, if I had to choose....go Steelers!

Catherine Swearengen says …

What a great product! I don't tolerate dairy well so this is definitely worth trying.

Jen A says …

Good belly is fantastic! Calms the frazzled stomach and a great tasty nutricious drink for the road

Susan says …

I'm cheering for Greenbay. They're a great team!

SC says …

You should cheer for Green Bay Packers because they will win! :-)

Linda says …

i think i would go for Pittsburg although i don't know why- i just found out who was in it too!

Elaine Cocilovo says …

The Green Bay Packers should and will win this game. They come from land of milk and CHEESE (cheeseheads) and gorgeous lakes full of delicious white fish. Pittsburgh, on the other hand, has Primanti's Restaurant as a huge draw - where 3" thick sandwiches have french fries on them! I'm going with healthy!!!!

Kathy D. says …

You have to cheer for Green Bay because they are awesome!

Nina Perkins says …

I broke my right hand (I'm right handed) but I can still open my GoodBelly carton with the left hand. Yeah!

Patricia says …

I'm not a football fan, but I'd suggest going with the Green Bay Packers because they haven't won the Super Bowl as many times as the Pittsburg Steelers.

susan erdman says …

You need to vote for Pittsburg. The reason is simple...my husband said so. And most importantly because my family has belly aches. My son has many food intolerances and I heard this drink helps.

Dawn says …

Go Steelers!!!! My friend and I are the only ladies we know that go crazier cheering than our guys.

Marcia says …

Love the alternative snack ideas. Maybe I'll find a new fave!

Richard Bollinger says …

I have no preference for either team, generally I wait for halftime then root for the underdog.

elizabeth n says …

Looking forward to trying GoodBelly products!

Angela A says …

Green Bay Packers.

Ann Maes says …

Just tried 'Good Belly' recommended by a friend. It's super great! My husband has had diverticulitus and the antibiotics he used wrecked havoc on his intestional bacteria -- the good kind! So this is a great way to get it back to normal and the taste is yummy! Please keep the quart size in stock! Ann M. Santa Fe, NM

Christine says …

Help! I really want to try the Good Belly products. Hard to find but I understand they are worth the hunt. First heard about it the Qirevolution last month....searching for them ever since. Found an empty shelf once (at the Danada Whole Foods), but sadly, that is as close as I got....
