Ten in 10 – Week 8 Update

Thank you all for the encouraging words last week… I’m gradually get out of my blogging slump, and along with that, I have been making healthier meals!  I’ve managed to get back on track this week and made quite a few healthy meals and snacks. I’ve managed to stay on track with my workouts, too!

Instead of telling you more of the same about my healthy goals, I thought I’d announce a giveaway this week for my Ten in 10 update…

FlaxMatters.com Giveaway…

You may have noticed that I have been using milled golden flax in quite a few of my recipes lately… I love the added fiber and health benefits of the flax, and it is easy to incorporate into baked goods! I find that it works well with the whole grain recipes that I love to try.  Flax can be substituted for egg by using 1 tablespoon of the milled golden flax and 3 tablespoons of water in the place of 1 egg in recipes.

Lucky for all of you, FlaxMatters.com has agreed to give away a bag of their blueberry blend and a bag of the milled golden flax to not one, but TWO lucky readers!

Here’s how to enter the giveway…

  • Head over to FlaxMatters.com to check out their products and register on the site (winners must be registered to receive the products in the giveaway)
  • Come back here and leave a comment to let me know that you registered and why you would like to try out the products from FlaxMatters.com

You have until Friday, March 5th at 10:00pm EST to leave a comment and enter the giveaway… I will announce the winner in next week’s Ten in 10 Update!

Here are a few of my recipes using flax to get you started… Good luck!

  1. I would love to try using more flax in my baking. Especially since my son doesn’t notice that there’s a “healthy” ingredient mixed in! :) Thanks for the giveaway!

  2. I registered! I’ve never actually tried flax, but my roommate is crazy over it. It seems like a way to sneak a ton of healthy bits into my cooking, which I think would be great for me and my non-veggie eating boyfriend.

  3. just registered! i would love to try flax seed — i have been trying to eat more healthfully lately and also eat in a way that is better for the environment — i just signed up for my local CSA! my boyfriend is vegetarian and so i eat a vegetarian diet for about 80+% of my meals and am beginning to realize how important it is to understand the nutritional value of what you are eating. i love to bake and flax seed would add a little extra bonus nutritional value to the sinful baked goods i will make in the future!

    thanks for a great giveaway

  4. I would also love to try flax seed in my baking – my dad won’t eat anything he thinks is “healthy” or involves the word “fibre” but I know that if I could get flax into some killer muffins, he would never know the difference!


  5. Just registered! So funny – I was watching an episode of Martha Stewart on my DVR today and she had a woman on talking about allergen-free baking today. She mentioned the flax substitute for eggs and then I pop over here and see your giveaway! Would love to give it a shot.

  6. I registered. I have never seen flax with fruit in it, what a great idea for baking. Also, I love the website, so many recipes and ideas for things to do with flax! Thanks for the giveaway :)

  7. I registered! I’ve never tried flax before, but I’ve heard amazing things about its benefits. I want to try it in smoothies, and of course in those scones you just made! :)

  8. I registered! And I’d love to try them out as a way to get a better dource of Vitamin E, I remember eating them on cheerios as a kid

  9. Just registered and I am very excited about trying flax in baking.

    For 2010, hubby & I are tying to eat healthier and lose some weight. Honestly, I thought flax was one of those “weirdo” things that only health-nut-freaks use. But after viewing your amazing, lip-smacking recipe for healthy honey beer bread … let’s just say I may be a changed woman! I think I’m ready to give flax a chance! :)

  10. What a great (and healthy!) giveaway! I really believe in the health benefits of flax seed and I love baking with flax seed meal – I put at least a little in nearly everything I bake (muffins and especially breads!). I stir some in my yogurt and even take flax seed oil caps!

    Oh, and blueberry? My favorite flavor. :-)
