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.
Wow. So awesome.
Here's a picture Tanya sent us when she learned about her insane luck:
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!

I love seeing each and every post so much!

Slowly crushes fruits and vegetables at an incredibly gentle 47 rpm, greatly reducing oxidation for superior juice quality. The vertical design allows juice to pass through quickly, plus the Duoblade™ double-edged auger does twice the work compared to a traditional single auger - making this ‘slow’ juicer extra fast. The mincing attachment turns the Slowstar into a multi-purpose tool to create an array of recipes like sorbets, nut butters, pastes and sauces.
Bringing you the ultimate in twin gear technology & maximising the benefits of your juice from any masticating juicer, there is no juicer like this one. Not only does it work to carefully crush produce without damaging nutrients, it cold presses the most juice from all greens & provides a 3rd stage- mixing, so that cell membranes can be easily opened to allow even more minerals to be extracted & preserved for longer.
The only dehydrator which offers an all-digital control panel to accurately control the way your food is dehydrated. Two digitally controlled fans divide the unit into two drying chambers for versatility or use either at its full or half capacity to save on electricity - choose to dehydrate four, five or nine trays of food at a time. Set the already quiet fans to night mode for extreme quiet operation.
I totally get what it's like to want to make all those frozen fruit ice creams, creamy cheesecakes, pastes, rawtella, nut butters, frozen cocktails, etc, but being left disheartened at the price of a Vitamix or Blendtec. Did you know that the best, closest, most incredible alternative does exist… and costs HALF the price!?

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!
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 Warranty upgrade 7 year unlimited: £60 Postage: £10 Total: £335 With betterraw promo code: £250 THAT’S A SAVING OF £85
Maroon/White machine: £270 Cook book: £15 Warranty upgrade 7 year unlimited: £60 Postage: £10 Total: £355 With betterraw promo code: £250 THAT’S A SAVING OF £105
Call it- your early Christmas gift. Or birthday. Or just an ‘I deserve it’ gift.
Whatever the occasion, it’s a little thanks from me for reading my blog.
I just know you’ll be happy with your new purchase and that’s the best gift to me too!
