Oh hi there.
Would you like a bite?
Today I want to share with you my latest brand crush. It’s a company called purely elizabeth and I met the founder, Elizabeth, last year at Expo East. I remember being drawn to her booth by the smell of freshly baked cookies. Once at the booth I got distracted by the granola samples and never ended up trying a cookie (which I’m totally regretting right now) but I fell in love with her products after trying the Pumpkin Fig granola. <– Oh yes, it’s as good as it sounds.
purely elizabeth makes some delicious granola as well as cookie and pancake mixes. All the products are made with all-natural and organic ancient grains and superfood seeds AND they’re free of refined sugar, dairy, wheat and gluten. Plus, they taste really, really good!
After chatting with Elizabeth I learned that she was a graduate from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, the same holistic health coaching program that I graduated from and there was an instant connection. After the expo I started following purely elizabeth through social media and realized that I not only liked their products but I really liked their brand and the content they shared. Check out the Summer Magazine to see what I mean. It’s full of beautiful photos, awesome product guides (love the style) and healthy recipes — I’ve been eyeing the spicy fries and the roasted pineapple habanero margarita.
I ended up winning a Facebook giveaway that purely elizabeth was hosting earlier this summer and got to taste two of their new granola bars (which aren’t for sale just yet) and was then offered to host a giveaway on EBF. With all the wedding stuff going on this summer it’s taken me quite a while to get this post together but today seems like the perfect day for a purely elizabeth giveaway!
The giveaway includes 3 bags of ancient grain granola (Original, Cranberry Pecan and Blueberry Hemp) AND a box of the gluten-free perfect pancake mix, which has no sugar and is made from five whole grain flours (millet, teff, buckwheat, corn and garbanzo fava bean flours) and superfood seeds (flax seed, hemp seed and chia seeds).
Alright, enough raving from me. If you can’t tell, I’m quite certain you guys are going to love purely elizabeth products.
If you’re interested in trying them, enter the giveaway by leaving a comment with which purely elizabeth product you’re most excited about. If you’ve already tried them, let me know which is your favorite. Oh, and just for fun, you can earn an extra entry by tweeting about the giveaway (just make sure to include @purelyelizabeth and @eatingbirdfood in your tweet with a link to this post), then come back here to leave a comment letting me know you tweeted. The giveaway ends July 23, 2013 at 11:59PM.
