My Kitchen Weapons - A Giveaway

August 23, 2010

In the last 100 pounds, I've learned something:

Presentation is everything! 
When you're sitting down to eat, eat from a nice plate, serve your drink in your best crystal, eat with nice silverware, add candles to your table!  It makes your meal feel extravagant, and seriously, you will be more satisfied - even eating less.  By now you should know that I love to cook.  I love all things kitchen - Fun dinnerware sets, kitchen gadgets, different kinds of stemware, really good knives, a sturdy non-stick skillet -  all are things I consider essential in my kitchen - my kitchen weapons - tools that help me in this life changing journey.

CSN Stores has kindly offered to sponsor my FIRST EVER GIVEAWAY!  CSN Stores is an online retailer that is comprised of more than 200 different shopping sites. Some of these include:  Cookware.com, Csnbaby.com, and Fitnessequipmentandmore.com.  I've done some browsing recently on Cookware.com and was impressed with their selection of dinnerware sets and cooking tools!  I also recently purchased a travel bed for my little boy from CSN Stores, and was impressed with both the price and quick shipping!

CSN Stores has offered to give one of my readers a promotional gift card for $40 that is good on any product in any of the CSN stores sites.  Hopefully you can use this to build up your "kitchen weapons" as well, and get further down a path to optimal health.

You have up to 3 chances to win by doing the following:
1 - Leave a comment telling me what your favorite "kitchen weapon" is, and how it helps you get/stay healthy.
2 - Follow my blog (with Google Friend Connect - on the right hand column) and leave me a comment telling me you did.  If you already follow my blog, just leave me a comment telling me that.
3 - Follow me on twitter:  @fatlittlelegs and tweet about this giveaway:  I entered @fatlittlelegs @CSNStores giveaway at: http://tinyurl.com/2fyc48s Leave me a comment telling me you tweeted!

This contest will be open until 9 pm on Monday, August 30th. 
The winner will be chosen at random from all eligible comments. 
This giveaway is open to readers in the United States and Canada only. 

Disclosure:  CSN stores did not compensate me for this post, but they did offer to give one of my readers a $40 gift card.  The item I purchased for my son was bought with my hard earned money before CSN stores contacted me regarding this giveaway.

    My favorite kitchen weapon is my Chopper - I use it to chope all kinds of healthy fruit and veggies for a more satisfied meal. I have found that the smaller the bites, the more my kids will eat and who doesn't want healthy kids. :)

  7. I meant that they eat more fruits and veggies - not more food....lol! When they say they are done - MOST of the time, I let their hunger signals rule, which is something that I was't taught growing up, hence one of the many reasons I look like I do today. :)

    Also, I follow your blog and LOVE it!
