6 Months Gluten-Free Give-Away

September 6th, 2010

I’m celebrating being 6 months gluten free by giving away six Mixes from the Heartland! It is hard to believe that I haven’t eaten processed food or gluten for over half a year. I’m feeling so much better, and I want you to start feeling better too!

The lucky winner of this giveaway will receive a set of mixes valued at $36:

  • Italian Bean Soup
  • Herb-N-Potato Pie Meal
  • Chicken Veggie Soup
  • Sausage Casserole Meal
  • Apple Cinnamon Coffee Bars
  • Strawberry Pound Cake

You don’t need to have Fibromyalgia to enter into this giveaway.  You don’t even need to be gluten intolerant either, but if you are this would be a great way to try out the food offerings from this wonderful company.

In order to participate I ask that you leave a comment on this post by September 25, 2010 in order to enter. The winner will be chosen at random on September 26, 2010. Any links from your blog or tweets about this post are highly welcomed. Good luck!

UPDATE (9/26/2010): This contest is now closed and a winner has been chosen. Thanks to all of you that had entered. It was great hearing about your successes with GFree living!

    I shared this post with the readers of my book’s facebook page today! If you’re not a “fan” already, type in FibroWHYalgia into the facebook search bar and check it out. I post current news, articles, posts, & discussion topics there.

    Of course, I tweeted about it, too 😉

    I would love to try the mixes. I have had fibro for 35 years, but did not receive a diagnois till 14 years ago. I have not tried gluten-free foods yet.

    I am at the end of my first week of gluten-free eating. I am beginning to feel a difference-especially with my IBS. It is difficult for me because I’m still not sure how to cook but will continue learning as I go. I’d love to get some Fibro Relief.

    I’ve got fibro….seems to be worsening every day! I’m only 59 and feel so old!! Anyway, I’m just thinking about modifying my diet. This would be a great start! Thanks for the offer.

    I know I’m allergic to processed wheat. I’m also trying to go by my Blood Type: AB- as a guide to what’s safe & not safe for me to eat. I save all the links you post. THANKS.

    What a great contest! i’ve been wanting to go Gluten free for soo long!

    Anyone with fibro and/or IBS who hasn’t tried a gluten-free diet should try it right now! I’ve only been g-free for 3 months, but the difference in fibro symptoms is incredible. I was skeptical that it would alleviate all of the fibro symptoms (I didn’t really get how inflamation would be caused by food) but I’m feeling better every day.

    I started on a gluten free diet about a year ago and it makes a HUGE difference, with the fM and gut issues!

    Hi My name is Nancy and I have had fibro since 1991… I have learned to deal with the pain, I take no medication for fibro.
    I go to a all natural store whenever possible and whenever I have the money.
    I would really LOVE to try gluden free foods, hoping they will help me.
    Thanks for the chance to try these products.
    Sincerly,

    I am sooo ready to try ANYTHING that will ease ANY of the lovely symptoms of my Fibromyalgia… just wish it was a little more cost-friendly as I have been unable to work for the last several years !

    Hi: What a thoughtful, kind thing to do: to have a celebratory give-away! I’ve been trying various elimination diets (not always successfully for long) and gluten is on my list of foods to eliminate. I have had IBS for 30+ years, and my dr. thinks my other constellations of health issues may indicate fibro. I just discovered your blog, through FibrWHYalgia, and have really enjoyed the postings so far.
    Good luck with your new bed! (I just finished reading your mattress-hunting experience. I need a new mattress, too, but hubby thinks the current one is just fine. Oh well.)

    Just found your blog but can’t figure out how to subscribe. I just went gluten free. It is amazing the difference it can make. I wish doctors told us that in the beginning.

    Phylor, thank you for your comment. The whole reason I started blogging about my experience with Fibromyalgia has been to raise awareness for alternative treatments, much like you. Following special diets can certainly be costly, but I’m happy to help give someone the opportunity to try eating gluten-free for a few days.

    About the bed, I am very blessed to have a super-supportive husband. He grumbled a lit bit about the expense of the bed, but deep down he is happy to let me try it out in the hopes of relieving some pain. I’ll let you know if it is worth the expense! It should be here on Saturday. I’m so excited!

    I love mixes from the Heartland. Thanks for a great giveaway!

    Congrats! Six months is just great!

    Congrats on 6 months! I’ve been gluten-free for 7 months, today actually! I can’t believe how much it changed my life. I’ve never heard Heartland but am always looking for new things to try.

  17. September 19th, 2010 at 17:35 | #17

    Megan, just curious if you have an autoimmune disease like Celiac, Lupus or Fibromyalgia? It isn’t necessary to win or anything….you just said that being gluten-free has changed your life. Yay!

    It would be AMAZING to win this! I’ve had Fibro for four years now. Recently a doctor told me to go gluten free. I’ve been reading a lot about it but haven’t made the leap yet. I’m obviously scared to do it because I will lose so much. I know it’ll most likely help in many ways and I’ll discover I can eat a lot of things I love — but eating out and all those foods I love in restaurants are out of question. It’s scary, and this would most def. help.

    Hopefully I am lucky enough to win 🙂

    Congrats on feeling better. I’ve been gluten free for nine months now and life is so much better. I wish you continued good health!

    I went on the Gluten Free diet at first to encourage my then 7 year old daughter who is gluten sensitive and casein sensitive. It seemed like an extremely possible diet to follow and most available goods seemed just expensive and tasteless, like cardboard. But, we have managed to make it about 4 years now and are always discovering new products that help us enjoy eating a little bit more, without the stomachaches, etc. to go with it. I could possibly develop sensitivity to gluten later, so sticking with this diet is a real investment in my future health. So for anyone out there who is hesistant to cut the gluten, GO FOR IT! You will definitely feel better for it, more energetic and somewhat lighter on your feet!

    Oh my, you are so successful all of you. Good job!
