Giveaway #5:  $75 Gift Certificate to Tropical Traditions AND $25 Gift Certificate to Massa Natural Meats!

This week marks one full year since the beginning of my blogging adventure.  So, to celebrate one year of blogging, I am doing a whole week of giveaways!  That’s right.  Every day this week, I am doing new giveaway every single day!  This is a way for me to say thank you to you for all of your support!  I also get to share some of my favorite products, books and more!  Today’s giveaway is co-sponsored Massa Natural Meats and by me!

It’s no surprise that I love love love Tropical Traditions.  The only coconut oil I buy their Gold Label Coconut Oil (organic, virgin), but I also buy shredded coconut, coconut chips, coconut cream concentrate, red palm oil, palm shortening, and various household cleaners (I especially like their multipurpose cleaner, hand sanitizer, and liquid hand soap).  They also carry a ton of baking supplies, including spices.  I also buy their grass-fed beef, bison, and lamb (and have just ordered some chicken to try for the first time).

Tropical Traditions is a family-owned business that puts quality, sustainability, and ethics first.  They have a strong commitment to family farming and organic standards.  Of the dozens of Tropical Traditions products that I have tried, only two have I not thoroughly loved (and because I know you are wondering, the two are the deodorant which did not work for me and the glass cleaner which is okay but not fantastic).  They are my only source for coconut and palm products and one of the places I buy a good portion of my grass-fed and pastured meat from (along with two local farmers and US Wellness Meats).

I am going to share my love of Tropical Traditions with you!  So, for giveaway # 5 of my week of giveaways, I am giving a:


$75 Gift Certificate to Tropical Traditions
(cannot be combined with free shipping offers or other coupons)
Only valid for US residents

But that is not all!  Massa Natural Meats is also contributing a:

$25 gift certificate to Massa Natural Meats
(this can be combined with online coupons and used toward shipping)
Only valid for US residenst

This gift certificate can be used toward any order (you could buy a couple of pounds of grass-fed ground beef or a quarter cow) and you can even use it toward shipping!

Massa Natural Meats is a family-owned and operated farm raising purely grass-fed beef  in the valley and foothills of Northern California.  Massa Natural Meats and the Massa Ranch in rural Glenn County is an active participant in numerous conservation efforts geared towards agricultural sustainability.  They are actively converting water wells to solar power, provide additional habitat for wildlife, and are currently embarking on a project with the Xerces Society to propagate wildflowers in a effort to recover native pollinator species (see their blog post).

 For large orders (i.e.: 1/4 or 1/2 beef) that are going to be shipped a long distance, Massa Natural Meats is  now able to ship “air port to air port” via airline at VERY reasonable rates.  They do not have a minimum purchase of any sort and are  now offering free shipping for “by the cut” orders over $100 with code “FreeShip100”.

THink of me on this giveaway! Following your pins, and getting emails on your feed now…need more paleo inspiration!

I’m trying to post my comment but it says website won’t allow.I would love some grass fed meat and coconut products because I’m trying to get away from all the crap they’re selling in the stores these days

I love you’re blog! – and would love some meat and coconut products! I’ve liked you and Massa on FB, and have told several friends about you!

I would love to have the gift certificates. I just found your blog today and love the mom angle. I’ve looked at other paleo sites, but love the mom tips here! I liked you on facebook.

Started Paleo for myself and 2 kids 2 months ago after MD’s recommendations- it cleared 90% of my son’s eczema! Your blog has made the transition more comfortable with the knowledge background you have and the wealth of information/format you provide. Thanks a ton! (I follow you on fbook, liked Massa Natural meats).

i enjoy reading your blog and how you break it down into understandable bits instead of just telling us to do something. Id love to have some coconut oil and meat!

Oh my! My two favorite things: Beef and coconut!! I like you on Facebook, and follow you on Pinterest (thanks for the awesome pins, by the way!!) and Twitter. I also liked Massa Natural Meats on Facebook, and took a good long look at their website. I’m so glad I did – I’ve been looking into buying a quarter or half a grass-fed cow, and they are the best prices I’ve seen so far! Plus I’m in the same state, yay!
