by Angela (Oh She Glows) on February 1, 2009

Good afternoon!

Oh my gosh it is glorious outside today! So warm and super sunny! :) I have been in such a great mood today because of it. Man, my body must be craving endorphins and Vitamin D!

Eric and I are just about to walk to the post office so I can mail out all of the prizes from contest #3! :D

And now I present to you Contest #4: The Healthy Valentine’s Day Giveaway!

Official Rules:

  • If you have a blog link back to this giveaway in a post and add me to your blogroll
  • Take a picture of your Healthy Valentine’s Day meal, snack, or dessert
  • Send me the recipe if you wish
  • Red and Pink colours a bonus!

We need to find the courage to say NO to the things and people that are not serving us if we want to rediscover ourselves and live our lives with authenticity.

Lindsey (Mrs. LC) February 1, 2009 at 8:32 pm

What a fun contest! Are there multiple recipe entries allowed? (Like could you submit a couple dessert recipes and a dinner recipe, or what?) Thanks!


Angela February 1, 2009 at 8:36 pm

Lindsey- I would prefer one entry per person for the CONTEST but you can submit others too…but please specify which one will be submitted for the contest :)


Emily February 1, 2009 at 10:54 pm

fun contest, I LOVE Valentine’s Day!


Marianne February 2, 2009 at 1:24 am

Ooooh, I think I know what I will make :D And I love that the Canadian prize pack includes the green tank, since pink is so not my thing!


Leah February 2, 2009 at 2:06 am

This is great! I’ve already got my idea! I went to bed thinking about it last night (i’m so cool hey?) haha!!


Sweet and Fit February 2, 2009 at 10:19 am

yay! I am so excited – I am actually going to try and get creative on this one – I LOVE Valentines Day!


Missy (Missy Maintains) February 2, 2009 at 1:28 pm

I like V-day! Especially when I get chocolate!! I am about to link back to this contest! I am holding one too for popchips :)


bitesdujour February 2, 2009 at 7:15 pm

I love Valentine’s Day! :) I already have an idea for my recipe…you’ll be getting it in a couple days!


Melissa February 3, 2009 at 11:55 pm

Umm…I forgot to add whether I like Valentine’s Day or not. I often have a lot of dates around vday, but I have never been in love (tear), so I guess not. Honestly, any advice on boys would be fabulous. :)


Erin February 4, 2009 at 3:12 pm

Well, for the past 5 years I’ve been celebratingV-day boyfriend free and loving it just hanging with my girls so yes I love it. It’s all about loving those around u!


Bobbi February 5, 2009 at 9:12 pm

oook I found it your going to love my snack I will email saturday thats the next time I will have a chance to breath!!!!


Yasmin February 6, 2009 at 10:38 am

Sounds like a fun contest! Even us single girls love Valentine’s Day!


Marianne February 7, 2009 at 2:08 pm

I’ll be sending you my entry in a few minutes :D And I’m pretty indifferent to Valentine’s Day. I don’t think I’ve actually been dating someone on Valentine’s Day…ever? So it’s just another day.


Dagne February 7, 2009 at 4:08 pm

Hi Angela, great contest! Valentines day is pretty much like any other day for me and hubby. We might have a bit more romantic dinner but we do nit buy each other gifts. Although flowers are nice any day! lol


Brandi February 7, 2009 at 9:03 pm

I love Valentine’s Day! It’s fun to think of cheap ways to tell my husband that I love him! Plus, there’s always good chocolate :)


coco February 7, 2009 at 9:19 pm

such a great idea to celebrate V-day! I’ll work hard on that! :D


priyankalovesfood February 8, 2009 at 12:47 pm

Hey I did not read the rules, i am submitting my comment now to a be a part of this awesome contest. I love V- day. i know each day is all about love but then isn’t it extra sweet to let your some one special be made feel that they are realllly realllly dear to you!!


nadia February 8, 2009 at 2:11 pm

Hi Angela! You’ll be getting my entry later! Since I’m single I don’t particularly enjoy Valentine’s Day, but that being said who doesn’t love chocolate and flowers?!


Krista February 8, 2009 at 4:55 pm

I enjoy Valentine’s Day very much!!


hareandtortoise February 8, 2009 at 7:29 pm

Great idea… I like Valentine’s Day, but no more than any other Saturday we spend together!


luckytastebuds February 9, 2009 at 11:17 am

Yayy i am TOTALLY submitting my green tea cheesecake recipe!!
I think…valentines day is really fun but also a pointless celebration because if you love someone, you should treat them as if every day were valentines day! right?


Helen's Journey February 9, 2009 at 5:42 pm

Great prizes, but what do UK residents win?


Helen's Journey February 9, 2009 at 5:42 pm

Great prizes, but what do UK residents win?


KK (Running Through Life) February 9, 2009 at 6:52 pm

Great contest! I must think of something yummy!

As for V Day, to me, it is just another wonderful day to spend with the husband!


Elizabeth February 9, 2009 at 7:54 pm

Finally submitted my entry! Even though I’m in a great relationship, Valentine’s day just isn’t my thing…maybe one day I’ll outgrow this, but so far it always seems so forced. (Or maybe we do too many fun things all year round!)


Hayley February 9, 2009 at 11:39 pm

Ah, glad to see I’m not the last one to comment here! A self-confessed closet romantic, I absolutely adore Valentine’s Day! I have the sweetest boyfriend ever, but unfortunately he doesn’t “believe” in the holiday and feels that every day is special with me. Oh well, I’ve booked us in for a surprise Valentine’s Spa Day, I’m sure we’ll both enjoy it!

Right, and I’m Canadian!
