#NowHelloSummer Giveaway with Now Foods (CLOSED)

As a member of the Eat The Burbs community, I know that you love food! I love food too, especially food that loves me back. Recently, I was invited to visit the test kitchens of Now Foods to learn all about their food brands. Most are familiar with the Now Foods supplements and other products, like my husband who uses their supplements exclusively. Well I’m here to tell all of you that the Food lines from Now Foods are amazing and not to be missed…they love you back, are Non-GMO, and quite a few of the products are organic.

Keep reading for your chance to win a swag bag of Now Foods products worth more than $130…

Okay, on to my visit to the Now Foods test kitchens, which are located in the suburbs of Chicago by the way. Upon arrival I was greeted by former Masterchef contestant and Head Chef, Suzy Singh and her partner, Chef of research and development, Maggie. Both ladies were very welcoming, so welcoming in fact that they had already prepared drinks for us…sans alcohol, but still good.

We were invited to learn about some of the newest products, like infused coconut oils, gluten free mixes, and natural sugar replacements. All good stuff, seriously. As you may have seen already on the Eat The Burbs Instagram, we made vegan organic quinoa sliders, they were AHMAZING!!

Making Quinoa sliders, they smell amazing and they haven’t hit the pan yet #nowhellosummer

Now Foods was founded in 1968 in the Midwest and has since expanded into a global brand. It’s still a family owned and operated company, which totally speaks to my heart. Find out more about the company and the wonderful people behind it here. The goal at Now Foods is to create products and sell Food that nourishes the body and mind. The fact that they’re committed to becoming a GMO Project verified 100% GMO-Free supplement brand and currently sell all GMO-Free Foods makes me feel good about buying their products for my family.

Now Foods sent me home with a goody bag full of awesomeness, worth more than $130.

Here’s what I had in it:

Since coming home with the swag bag a few weeks ago I’ve been using most of the products and there are some that I absolutely cannot live without now. The Organic butter flavored coconut oil is like the best damn thing ever, I’ve cooked with it, done some oil pulling with it, and most successfully melted some and used it as a topping for popcorn…Movie Theater BUTTER anyone? I’m always looking for ways to introduce healthier fats so this oil is my everything right now. My little one (with all of the food allergies) loves the Chocolate Chip Banana Bread and we were able to keep it eggless (using chia seeds) and the texture and taste were perfect! Checkout some of the recipes that Chef Suzy is working on, they’re posted on the Now Foods blog.

  1. Judith

    I’d love to try the acai lemonade! It sounds perfect for a hot summer.

  2. Becca Z

    I really want to try their Chocolate Fudge Brownie Mix and their MCT oi. I use NOW calcium and iron supplements, their popcorn, and several flavors of their liquid stevia.

  3. Gina B

    I love their All Purpose Flours, the Tricolor Quinoa and I’m simply mad about the Garlic Coconut Infusions. I cook with that every day! I’d love to try it in the Non-Dairy Butter Flavor too. Great stuff!

  4. Cindy Vasquez

    i haven’t tried anything! That is why I’m entering to hopefully win so I can try the foods

  5. Amy E

    My 15 year old daughter is starting to do a lot of things with chia seeds- she just made a “jam” with frozen strawberries and chia seeds and a little bit of coconut milk. It tasted like jam- with no added sugar! So I’d love to try the Now brand Chia seeds, and the sugarless sugar intrigues me.

  6. Kelsey Nelson

    First of all, I love Masterchef (Gordon!) and I didn’t know Suzy was with NOW Foods! I’m trying to eat healthier and I would love the opportunity to try the Agave Nectar and Sunflower Oil! I haven’t tried either and they sound like great substitutes.

  7. Leah S.

    I definitely want to try making those quinoa sliders! They look absolutely delicious!!

  8. Jill S

    I use NOW essential oils and love them! I would love to try any of their foods products but I would really like to try the NOW chia seeds. We use chia seeds in a lot of foods!

  9. Ryan Schurman

    I’d like to try the canola oil. I have used the protein powder and the honey-roasted pecans are great!

  10. kelsie

    Infused coconut oil? That sounds amazing! But everything Now makes is amazing.

  11. Amy M.

    I currently use their Chia Seeds (which I eat almost every day!) and nutritional yeast. I would love to try their quinoa and chocolate chip banana bread!!

  12. Dandi D

    What a great prize–I would love to try all these products!

  13. Kelly D

    I would like to try the Organic Black Chia Seeds. I have only tried the Living Now Brownie Mix.

    • Congrats Kelly D. You were chosen by a randomizer as the winner of the Now Foods giveaway. I’ll contact you via email with further details.

  14. Angela

    I would like to experiment with the avocado oil because I’ve never tried it before.

    • You’re awesome Carolsue. Thanks for sharing on Pinterest. I’ve been using the Canola oil all week and it’s great, nothing like the regular grocery store brands.

  15. Victoria

    This all sounds so good! I’m getting more into searching for non gmo foods.

  16. Alissa Eckas

    I love now foods! Like your husband I have transitioned to now foods for 90% and counting of my supplements… From spirulina, chorella, wheat grass, coconut oil caps to super enzymes, pre and probiotics and acacia fiber for tip top intestine health. Thyroid and addrenal support formulas for hormone balancing. Love that I can trust now foods brand quality and clear labeling. I would love to try all of the products you have listed as I’ve just started getting into their home and food products with mct oil and their oil diffusers and essential oils.

  17. Mary Cummings

    I would like to try the Living Now Organic Chocolate Fudge Brownies, the Coconut Infusions – Non-Dairy Butter Flavor, the Living Now Gluten-Free All Purpose Flour and the Avocado Oil. I’ve never tried NOW Food Products. They all look inviting.

  18. joti

    I have tied the Slender Sticks and love it. I wanna try the Coconut Infusions
