Focus on Stocking Your Kitchen With Real Food Ingredients (A Giveaway Package from More Than Alive)

31 Days 300

Grocery stores and online resources offer plenty of prepared foods. Some of them are even of the “healthier” variety, giving us some handy snacks to have on hand that are at least made from “better for you” ingredients. I appreciate having a few of these items on hand for when we’re traveling or for those days I truly can’t find an extra minute to make something to eat.

But what I find it better to focus on is simply purchasing real food ingredients. If I stock up on all the staple ingredients that I use frequently, I can be assured that with just a few minutes of work, we will have something great to eat! Even better, I find that if I have basic staple ingredients on hand, if I find a few extra minutes in the day, I can mix something up to put into the freezer for those days I don’t have time to cook (which is happening more and more as my kids get older).

Read more about my preferred staple ingredients here. And here’s something super fun to help us all get going with our real food stock pile…

More Than Alive, which carries many wonderful ingredients that I use daily, has put together a perfect package to give away. The quality of the food they offer is wonderful. I love that you can purchase in large quantities, or just by the pound if you prefer. (Although I found that if you purchase a larger quantity, typically the price per pound is much less!)  They offer free shipping on orders over $100, which is a huge money saver. I love it when healthy ingredients arrive on my porch!

Today, More Than Alive is even giving Heavenly Homemakers readers an additional 10% discount! Use the code HHBLOG10 to receive 10% off  any order over $50 (not including shipping). Don’t forget you get free shipping on orders over $100. This discount code is good through January 25, 2014.

    What a fun giveaway! Although I’m embarrassed to admit — I’m not quite sure what amaranth seeds are or what they could be used for!

    I always try to keep oats in the house. Besides granola and many oatmeal dishes it is wonderful to use in place of bread crumbs. I would love to build more staples that you have mentioned here though.

    So very true! Today I made the 3-ingredient creamy mac and cheese off your site. So simple. I much prefer keeping good ingredients on hand to trying to meal plan breakfast lunch and dinner.

    One of the best ways to eat healthier foods is to keep them on hand. If I have junk on my shelves or in my fridge, the temptation to consume it is much greater!

    Thank you, Laura, for all the inspiration. It helps to keep me going with my Real Foods journey. I’ve been taking baby steps for several years now, initially due to health concerns. Just wish I could get my sweets-loving husband to feel inspired as well! Oh well. I do what I can! :)

    Just wanted to say a very warm THANKS for your website and your generosity with your recipes, suggestions and encouragement. I just started subscribing to your site , purchased the Resource Package and I’ve learned a lot! I’ve already made some changes and tried a handful of your recipes! In fact, a few minutes ago I unloaded two boxes of items I ordered through Vitacost. I felt like I was feeding my family rather healthy foods, but always could make more improvements. Your site is helping me through that process! THANKS!!!

    Cutting sugar is so difficult for me….it has been a life long struggle.

    Thanks for sharing your sugar struggles…..I am often on an island trying to defeat it. I know it is something I need to give over to The Lord…I try but then I take it back. Thanks for the package give away….I would love to have it,

  52. Felicia says

    I am starting to use all this knowledge I have about eating healthy the way God intended – instead of just ‘knowing’ it. Our family will benefit greatly from it. Winning this would be a great help in that direction.

    I would LOVE this! Also, LOVE your blog. I have been following it for several years now, along with a lot of others. Recently, God has laid on my heart that my food journey can be unhealthy as well if I obsess over every detail, especially more than Him. I have started only reading blogs that use God as their main inspiration in the kitchen! Thank you for All you are doing!!! Yummy recipes too!

  66. Jayd says

    This deal is great! Your information and encouragement to eat healthy is appreciated. To eat with the main purpose of satisfying my cravings is making my stomach my god. To eat with the main purpose of nourishing God’s dwelling-place is my stewardship. Side benefits include delicious, visually appealing and affordable food.

    I would love to win this! What a blessing it would be. And what a cool giveaway. We are about a year into our real food diet change. I got super sick 18 months ago (like kidney’s shut down sick) and had to change a lot of things. It has been a hard road and i am still learning the ropes! Thanks for everything!
