Friday I told you I had some pretty exciting news….
I think it is time for me to tell you….
Great Harvest of Wayne, PA has generously donated TWO, count them, TWO product packages for you guys to win!
Last week I went to GH to pick up my weekly loaf of bread. Since I wake up before sunrise on pretty much every day of my life, I typically get to the bakery around 7. Wayne is about an hour from me, but I make the trek there to pick up our bread for the week, stop at Whole Foods, Trader Joes, etc. This may sound a little excessive but it is a relaxing morning for me, and I live in a town that has 0 healthy choices; definitely more a place of buffets not broccoli.
Anyway, I got to GH pretty early and Debbie, the owner, was behind the counter. We got to chit-chatting and I told her about my husband’s love for the sweet breads and how I love the multi-grain varieties, when another woman walked in. After talking for a few moments, we realized we both drive considerable distances to get their products! That is how you know it is good 🙂
Now, let me explain a little further…
When I first started blog surfing I only had a few in my repertoire. One of the very first I found was Kath Eats Real Food…which I am sure you all have heard of 🙂 When she first started talking about Great Harvest, the company’s values, their products and her and Matt’s business venture, I searched to see if there were any near me. The closest one was in Wayne, which I knew I visited pretty frequently, so I figured I would go take a look the next time I was in the area.
From the second I walked in the door, I loved the atmosphere; strong coffee smell, welcoming people behind the counter, FREE samples, and lots of choices. I got to the counter and looked at the vast array of breads. Since I have mentioned that I am a terrible decision maker I am sure you can imagine the hour (ok, not really an hour but a very long time) it took for me to make my choice. I selected the low carb cinnamon chip, a Morning Glory Muffin, and holiday bread for Ryan.
I know I have mentioned my past fear of carbs, but really, this is a brand I felt comfortable, and good about eating. It is a real, whole food, made with awesome ingredients and the baker’s passion for health. I knew after reading Kath’s blog I had to find the company that had the values I look for in most products I purchase.
Ok, that is enough of my rambling…Onto the giveaway!!!!
