    Big Huge MASSIVE Congratulations to Tanya Wilkinson from London!!

    Hay House picked a winner using random.org and to all of our surprise and delight, the system blessed us with #222 and another Tanya.

    Screen Shot 2015-09-13 at 21.58.45

    Here’s a note she sent:

     

    Thanks you for making my day, week and year all in one go! Have been floating on air all evening.

    I wanted to send a huge heartfelt thank you to Tanya. I have been so excited about her book coming out as I am a big Tanya’s Cafe fan! She has been a huge inspiration to me and a big influence on my cooking and eating habits – to the point where I was looking up the course at the School of Integrative Nutrition just last week. Am taking this as a bit of a sign and going to save the cash to make the plunge to do it in 2016, plus have tonight booked in to a food photography workshop at the end of September to sharpen up my shooting skills for everything I’ll be making. ”

     

     

    And here’s a picture from Tanya with her mountain of prizes:

    I tell you what- it certainly feels pretty damn good to make someone feel this amazing.

    How I do wish we could’ve done this for ALL of you to show you how much your support means, because it really really does. But then again this isn’t the last giveaway we will be doing and for now, let’s all congratulate Tanya and share some of the joy with her. Ah, we feel the joy!

    Thank you so so much to you guys for entering the giveaway, for purchasing The Uncook Book and for sharing your re-creations of my recipes with me on social media. I love seeing each and every post so much! To make sure that I don't miss them, tag #TheUncookBook (I will always read your post and like it, it's my favourite part of the day to check what you've made :)).

    Finally, thanks to our amazing partners and truly my favourite brands out there for your most generous gifts to make this competition the biggest in the industry...

      Does a cheaper Vitamix exist?

      Does a cheaper Vitamix exist?

      Apparently so!

      OK, so it’s not called a Vitamix and it’s not even associated with Vitamix, but my new find of a powerhouse-blending-beast ticks all the comparison boxes.

      As a wellness coach, I have worked with many of you at various stages of your journey to rawsomeness and on various budgets throughout the years…

      I totally get what it’s like when you want to give the healthiest lifestyle a real shot, only to end up disheartened when every recipe that actually gets you exited, requires a high powered blender.

      I also totally get what it’s like when you find out how much a Vitamix or a Blendtec costs, while trying to keep on top of your rent payments, saving for a holiday or your kids’ extra curriculum activities.

      BEST NEWS EVER!!!

      Although I’m not about to trade in my Vitamix (you know why if you own one), I am thrilled to tell you about the best, closest, most incredible alternative I’ve been able to find to date… which costs HALF the price!

      Introducing…

      JTC OMNIBLEND.


      img_3685

      It’s powerful: 3 horse power motor!
      It’s speedy: 38,000 RPM.
      It’s energy efficient: 950 watts.
      It’s environmentally friendly: BPA free and made of Eastman Tritan copolyester.
      It’s long lasting: the blades are laser cut food grade stainless steel, which don’t rust and are blunt, so no sharpening required!
      It’s quality: the blades are made in Japan, container in USA, motor and electronics in Taiwan.
      It’s capable: all your raw food favourites, like whole fruit smoothies, pastes, hot raw soups, nut butters, ice creams and cheesecakes are OmniBlend’s specialties.

      I really didn’t know I’d be this excited to find an affordable high-powered blender option for you, but JTC OmniBlend is good. Really good. Like really REALLY good.

      It passed all my tests for a top kitchen must-have. It made my whole fruit ice cream -super creamy. It let me walk away for 5 minutes while making my soup, which turned out perfect and perfectly hot while still raw. It passed the ease test while making chocolate truffles, almond butter and blueberry cheesecake, because of the handy tamper rod and the super powerful motor.. And [rather important in my books] it also has the dome-like lid, which allows you to blend large volumes to produce more smoothies in one go than no other professional home blender ever could.

      The best part of it all is that you don’t only pay half the price of leading blender brands, as my valued reader- you receive all this PLUS upto an additional £105 in savings:

      Black machine: £250
      Cook book: £15
