BlogHer Food ’09 & Winners!

Hey all!

My apologies for not announcing the WholeSoy contest winners sooner! I totally forgot that Monday was a holiday when I set up the contest. Anyway, I’ll get to the winners in just a moment, but first….


I just bought my ticket for BlogHer Food ’09, and am so excited! I was hoping to attend the regular BlogHer conference, but it was all sold out by the time I got around to it. But BlogHer Food is not only less expensive, it’s also in my city! I first heard about it when Tina said she was going, and I knew I had to attend. Is anyone else going? I’d love to meet any of you who will be attending, and organize a reader meet-up, and maybe a run or even some tours of San Francisco – I love showing people around! If anyone has any questions about SF at all, please ask! It’s one of the greatest cities ever, in my opinion. 😉


Ok, now the moment you’ve really been waiting for! Without further ado, the winners (selected using the Random Integer Generator):

A free pint of soy frozen yogurt, a free soy yogurt and bonus coupons go to:

Anne K, who said:
Creme Caramel, for sure! Yum!
I’ll link back in my next post 🙂


Rose for her Tweet

And the Grand Prize Winner

Erin who said, Vanilla Bean or Caramel!!

Congratulations! Anne, Rose and Erin, please email me at prettygreenjanet@gmail.com!

You’re all winners to me, of course! I have some more coupons and will be doing another contest in the near future, so stay posted!

What Have You Given Up?

***Have you entered the WholeSoy & Co giveaway yet? Get your entry in to win free soy yogurt & fro yo!***

I was watching Oprah last night and the topic was “What Can You Live Without?” I only watched the first few minutes and am saving the rest to watch later (man, I love TiVo), but it got me thinking about what I can and do live without and have given up for environmental, health, ethical and other reasons. Some things have been harder than others – bananas, for example, which I’ve (somewhat guiltily) started to incorporate back occasionally. Coffee, tea, coconut and chocolate are all staples in my life, and I can’t give them up completely, but I do look for organic, fair trade, shade-grown, sustainable, and all the other green buzzwords. Other things have been easy – using a Sigg water bottle instead of bottled water, walking or taking the bus or working from home when I can (I still have a car but would LOVE to get rid of it some day), ditching high fructose corn syrup and artificial sweeteners. I’m trying to cut back on individually packaged items, and need to work on some recipes to better replicate my favorite bars. I also try to buy meat that is sustainably and humanely raised, though this can be quite difficult at times and I’ve actually been tossing around the idea of cutting back on meat a bit. It’s not always being “pretty green,” but I feel good when I make these choices!

And now, on a totally unrelated note, a picture from my friend’s wedding last weekend. Wait! I think this demonstrates that I can’t give up champagne (though it was a delicious semi-local one). I’m in the middle. 🙂

What have you given up for environmental, health, ethical, etc. reasons? Are there any things you’d like to give up but just haven’t been able to yet? What could you never give up?

Pretty Green Giveaway: WholeSoy & Co

I am so excited to share this giveaway with you guys! Free soy yogurt and frozen yogurt – how cool is that?


Last week, I posted about my love for the amazing WholeSoy & Co frozen yogurt, and decided to let the good people there know about my post. Well, I got an amazing response – an email back from Yesica at WholeSoy & Co offering me some coupons to share with friends and family as a thank you! She also told me that my email/post brought a smile to everyone at the company’s face, and then I got a personal email from the Founder/CEO of the company thanking me and mentioning that it warmed the hearts of everyone at their small family company to receive such good feedback. Ted, the Founder/CEO, also said I could contact them any time with ideas or suggestions. What amazing customer service! I’m so glad I decided to let them know about my post. What a great company with such nice people. I already LOVE their products and this just makes me want to buy them even more (and tell everyone I know to do the same!).

I wrote Yesica back and mentioned I’d love to do a giveaway with some of the coupons, and she wholeheartedly agreed! When I returned from my friend’s wedding this weekend, I was in for a great surprise – a package full of coupons! I’m delighted to be able to give some of these away to you, my lovely readers! I have enough that there will be another giveaway in the future, too. 🙂

There will be 3 winners in this contest:

Two people will each win a coupon for a FREE pint of frozen yogurt AND a coupon for a FREE soy yogurt, as well as a few bonus coupons for discounts on WholeSoy & Co products


One Grand Prize Winner will win a FREE pint of frozen yogurt, 3 FREE soy yogurts, and a booklet containing a ton of coupons: 3 for 25 cents off a 6 oz cup of yogurt, 3 for $1 off a 24 oz tub of yogurt and 3 for $1 off soy frozen yogurt!

Here’s how to enter:
1. Link to this contest on your blog (if you don’t have a blog you can still enter!)
2. Leave a comment on this blog with what WholeSoy & Co flavor you’d most like to try
3. Twitter about the contest (comment or send me an @ reply to let me know so I don’t miss it!)
4. Add me to your blogroll (again, comment to let me know so I don’t miss it!)

That’s right, four ways to win – one contest entry given for each! Contest runs until Monday, May 25th at 12 noon, so get your entries in!

Good luck!

Pretty Green Giveaway: The Natural Dentist

I am very excited to announce a PGG contest! Or maybe I should call it a Pretty Green Girl Giveaway – PGGG!


Earlier this month, I posted about my quest for a natural toothpaste that tastes good and is environmentally-friendly, and how pleased I was to have found one I like. Susan from The Natural Dentist found my post, and we came up with a contest to let 2 lucky readers win a prize pack! It will contain an assortment of rinses and toothpastes – Susan will actually work with the winners to pick out the perfect prize pack (if you have kids, want something whitening, prefer fluoride-free, etc!). How cool is that?

To enter:
1. Leave a comment on this blog with what The Natural Dentist product you’d most like to try.
2. Bonus entry if you link from your blog to the contest
3. Bonus entry if you tweet about the contest on Twitter! Let me know if you do!

You have until Friday, April 24 at NOON, PST to enter. Winners (picked randomly) will be announced Friday afternoon!
