There are 7 prizes which means there is going to be 7 winners! So here's what you have the potential to win :)

Eat Clean Diet

1 green Eat-Clean Diet grocery bag
1 Raw Elements Water bottle
1 sample of Sun Warrior Raw Vegan Protein Powder
1 sample of Sun Warrior Activated Barley Powder
1 sample of Sun Warrior Ormus Greens Powder
1 copy of Tosca Reno's Just the Rules

As well as a recipe from Tosca using the supplements in the goody bag.

Back in November, Michelle stumbled upon a local Toronto based company called Urban Running Girl. Urban Running Girl makes running shrugs...yes, that's right...RUNNING SHRUGS! These shrugs are designed for active women. "The idea of a running shrug came about from the need to keep warm while warming up during and early morning run, particularly in the spring and fall. It's too cool to start with only a tank top or t-shirt, but once you are warmed up and/or outside the temperature rises. Then it becomes too warm for a long sleeve shirt or jacket". These shrugs come in a variety of colours: purple, black, pink, orange and turquoise. The shrugs are made of tech material that wicks away quickly, it also has fold over cuffs that you can use to cover your hands on cooler days!

Prize: One awesome running shrug in your choice of colours!

Allergic Solution
Allergic Solution allergen-free mixes were created from a place of knowledge about nutrition and how a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle can heal the body. The founder of the company is both a nutritionist and consumer who has yearned for healthy, allergen-free, gluten-free food products available in the market place. Their mission is to provide ethically and socially responsible products that support the needs of people with allergies, assist in reducing inflammation in the body and contributes to overall health. The mixes are free of corn, dairy/casein, gluten/wheat, peanuts, tree-nuts and soy and are also 100% vegan, kosher certified and are made in North America.
Prize Includes: Yeast Free Bread Mix, Pancake/Waffle Mix, Vanilla Cake Mix, Carob Cake Mix and a recipe book.

Omega Crunch Shelled Flax
Regular flax contain a hard outer shell that our digestive system is unable to breakdown so it passes through the body without us absorbing any of the nutrients of the kernel found inside.  You can get around this by using ground up flax but the taste leaves a lot to be desired. Omega Crunch however, is produced with shelled flax (flax that has had the hull removed from the inner flax kernel). Your body is able to easily digest the flax seed and reap the benefits offered by the seed. And they taste great! The natural flavour really doesn't taste like anything and you can throw it in granola and raw macaroon recipes, or top of yogurt with a tablespoon of shelled flax.  It adds a crunchy texture without the taste of the ground flax.  You can also buy it in maple, cinnamon and garlic flavours.

The other thing I really love about this product is that is is made right here in Nova Scotia.  In fact, it is produced in New Minas which is only 20 minutes away from where Suzi lives, and is produced in partnership with The Flower Cart which is an organization that provides training and employment for individuals with intellectual disabilities.

Prize Includes: One 225g shaker bottle of Regular Shelled Flax.

Koge Vitamins

These ain’t your momma’s vitamins, but if you’re a nice kid you should get them for mom, IS almost Mother’s Day!

Each tub has 30 packs of vitamins, so all you have to do is take one a day and enjoy the benefits. The best part about Koge (besides wicked vitamins and spirited, down-to-earth, cute founders)?

Prize: One month supply of Daily Essentials. They'll provide you with a complete set of healthy nutrients required for optimal day-to-day wellness. Your body will be at its best, no matter what the day throws your way.

NoSweat Laundry
NoSweat has been amazing for Katy from Fit in Heels, who has invested so much money in workout clothes. What goes in to the washing machine is rank-ass, stinky laundry (courtesy of her and her husband, two fitness junkies who like to sweat) and what comes out smells so good it makes her want to shove her face in my husband's jock.  Katy's words.

NoSweat can be used on its own (you need the teeeeniest amount), or in addition to your laundry detergent. It takes out yellow stains and works specifically with workout gear materials! In addition, the Mat Spray can be an amazing addition to your yoga practice, to freshen up your mat!

    The Eat Clean Diet goodie bag is my first pick ♥

  23. The Face of Hope prize pack and the No Sweat Laundry pack are my two favourites (I know, you asked for one, sorry). I worry that what I put on my skin is absorbed, so Face of Hope is very attractive. And I am always on the look out for a way to clean our laundry without harming the environment, and my hubby sweats like I have never seen before - so I would really like to try No Sweat for that reason. That said all of these packages are awesome. Thank you for hosting this contest!
