One Giveaway… 5 WINNERS… and Pineapple Ginger Mint Juice

Posted by

Rather than spend the bulk of this post ranting about last night’s game :(, I figured I would spread some good cheer. The Universe converged in such a way that I am pleased to be offering a number of giveaways this month–starting with 5 copies, yes folks, 5 DVDs of the food documentary Food Matters! Anyone who knows me, knows that I am passionate about health, food, and education, which means I watch lots and lots of food documentaries. Rather than hoard all of the information for myself, I started writing reviews for Como Water on my FAQ page. This month, I get a chance to take it one step further by giving away 5 copies of one of the best food documentaries that I’ve seen (review will be posted later in the month).

Here’s how you can enter (You have 7 chances to win! Leave a separate comment for each action you take!):

1. Leave a comment letting me know what juice, smoothie, or superfood you’d like to see me feature this month.

2. Become a fan of Como Water on Facebook.

3. Follow Como Water on Twitter.

4. Tweet this giveaway.

5. Tell your friends about this giveaway on Facebook (via a status update).

6. Mention this giveaway on your own blog, if you blog.

7. Become a fan of Food Matters on Facebook.

I’ll be choosing the winners on Saturday morning, so you have until Friday midnight (EST) to enter! GOOD LUCK! Try this juice below (made in honor of my favorite country Brazil!)! And… Have a Happy Monday! 😀

  1. What a neat giveaway, Tiffany!!! And your juice sounds so wonderfully delicious and refreshing. I’d love to see anything made with beets…I hope they are a super food 🙂

  2. Carrot ginger juice, simple but does so much good. Carrot and ginger are great in so many things too, I bet you could come up with some great recipes with that theme!

  20. I’ve heard wonderful things about this documentary and your juice sounds fantastic!! I just spent a week on the beach so I’m all about the pineapple right now : )

  27. I would love some of that juice right now…and as for superfoods, I’d love to see something on pomegranates–I find their color so appealing but am never quite sure what to do with them.

  28. please feature dried mulberries!

  29. This juice looks delicious! My brother has been juicing and has lost a lot of weight, but I have hyperglycemia so I couldn’t just do juice all day everyday! I don’t have a juicer, so anything that can be made in a blender would be great for me! 🙂 I would love to see more with blueberries!

I would love to see not a juice….but a smoothie made with whatever combination of ingredients makes sense to you….but that features carrots! Yum! Hope you are having a GREAT week! : )

  64. I know this over, but I just thought I’d add my two cents – I really loved this documentary. It was really eye opening to me, and I certainly learned a lot!

  65. Hi Tiff, another fabulously tasty, healthy recipe! I always end up with half a pineapple mouldering in the fridge as my hubby doesn’t like it. You’ve solved this problem – I’ll just juice it up with ginger and mint in future!

  66. Sorry I missed you giveaway…such a cool one 🙂 But this juice is just wonderful and will be trying it soon 🙂

  67. Love your recipe! I’ve linked to this post from my blog.
