Super Sprout Natural Food Powder – Share&Win Contest and Promo Code!

One of the things that makes me really happy is healthy food. I love being surrounded with all things healthy and colorful. Thus, I will go gaga inside an organic shop or at the fruits and veggie section of a supermarket. I love dishing out colorful meals and smoothies for my kids too. 🙂

Yesterday, I was one very happy health freak mommy when I received my package of healthy fruit powder from Super Sprout Malaysia, comprising of blueberry powder, beetroot powder and ginger powder.  Thank you so much for sending these good stuff to me Reako Sdn Bhd!  I love them so much!!

Why is Super Sprout so good?

Super Sprout powders are natural food powder which can be used in cooking, baking (bread, cookies, cakes, tarts), smoothies, yogurt, salad, soup, sauce and basically any recipe.

Not only can Super Sprout powders improve the colour and taste of a dish in a very natural way, the food powders also enrich nutrient  profile and improve digestibility of the nutrients found in them.

Using Super Sprout powders is easy peasy too. Just a teaspoon a day — sprinkle, stir, mix or add into any dish you like.  No fuss, no waste, no mess.

Super Sprout powders are suitable for the whole family’s consumption, including children of one year and above.

Super Sprout powders come from 100% Australian grown fruits and vegetables.

I could not wait to try out the powders and made a quick dash to the kitchen to whip up my smoothie-of-the-day, which was orange + green apple + Super Sprout blueberry powder for the girls.

I whizzed a teaspoon of Super Sprout blueberry powder with the fruits for 20 seconds on my Blendtec blender.  Then, sprinkled another teaspoon for decor.  I was worried that my fussy girls wouldn’t like the taste but they were awed by the vibrant colors of their smoothie and bolted down their smoothie in a jiffy!

Mine was orange + green apple + beetroot powder.  I find that beetroot powder is much more palatable than taken raw. The beetroot powder is super fine and slightly saltish, which tantalizes my palate.  I love it!

I used a teaspoon of Super Sprout beetroot powder to pulse it with my fruits and sprinkled another teaspoon for deco. Don’t you just like the reddish pinkish hue of my smoothie? It’s good stuff, bursting with flavors and nutrients ok.

 

 

I wasn’t in the mood to eat any meat yesterday (again!), so I whipped up something that’s excitingly meat-free for lunch.

I had toasted sprouted wheat bread with cream cheese and Super Sprout blueberry powder. The combo tastes like blueberry cheese spread, with a hint of saltiness and tanginess. Just perfect for health freaks who are on a low-carb diet.  You can drizzle some Manuka honey, maple syrup or palm sugar syrup on the toast, if you fancy it slightly sweet.

Crispy, yummy and wholesome sprouted wheat toast for lunch, with a hard boiled free-range chicken egg, avocado and fresh blueberries.  I love the colors on my plate – so vibrant, so enticing and so healthy – anytime better than a plate of nasi lemak or chicken rice 😀

 

In the afternoon, I made myself a cuppa Super Sprout ginger powder tea, sweetened with palm sugar syrup. I used a teaspoon heap of ginger powder and a drizzle of palm sugar syrup to a cup of hot water.  Drinking this ginger tea brought back sweet memories of my confinement days where I was treated like a queen — I had sumptuous meals in my bedroom 4-5 times a day and gulped down cups after cups of ginger tea 😀

Ginger is well-known for reducing gas and painful spasms in the intestinal tract.  It also reduces menstrual cramps, has a warming effect, stimulates circulation, inhibits such bacteria as Salmonella and protozoa and prevents stomach ulcers.

FREE Give-Away of Ecover Cleaning Products!

This was what we had for dinner last night – stir-fried egg noodles with fish cake slices, meat slices, cabbage and fried eggs.   The girls savored  their oodles of yummy noodles to the very last strand! After dinner, they had to help to wash the dishes and clean up the dining area.  Our part-time helper could not come yesterday, thus the MIL dished out something simple at home.

I am so thankful that someone had just couriered 2 bottles of environmentally-friendly dishwashing liquid to me just a few days ago. With Ecover’s gentle dishwashing liquid,my girls helped to wash the dishes without the need for wearing rubber gloves yesterday night! 🙂

So what’s so special about Ecover dishwashing liquid?

Since 1980, Ecover is the world’s best known brand of environmentally friendly household cleaning products. Ecover is powered by nature and produces cleaners derived from plants and minerals. This means its products are free from harsh and sometimes harmful chemicals, that may cause dry skin and blisters to the skin.

After using Ecover dishwashing liquid, my hands did not have the ‘tight’ and dry feeling.  That’s because  Ecover products are dermatologically tested and suitable for those with sensitive skin.

Ecover products are made in Belgium and the bottles are made from sugar cane-based  polyethylene and are 100% recyclable. Their eco surfactants have been tested to provide powerful cleaning with complete biodegradability and low toxicity. A win for us and for Mother Nature!

After the girls were done with the dishes, I used Ecover cream cleaner (similar to Jif but without the harsh chemicals and overpowering smell) to wash the kitchen sinks, without the need for wearing rubber gloves!  The cream cleaner is almost free from fragrance, which I like!  I am allergy to the overpowering smell of most bathroom and household cleaning products as they choke me up and make me feel dizzy when I inhale them.  But with Ecover, cleaning is just a breeze 🙂

And The Winners Of The Method To The Rescue Contest Are….

For those of you who have submitted your entries, I am sure you have been checking out my blog regularly to check out if you are one of the lucky 5 winners, eh? 😛

If I were part of the Management of Method, I’d love to reward all those of you who have submitted your entries. I really think that each and everyone of you and your family / friend deserve a Method product. I really love all your stories. It ain’t easy for me to choose 5 winner. Together with my daughters, we have picked these 5 winners, though I’d love to choose all!

And so the lucky 5 winners of the Method To The Rescue Contest are….. (big drums rolling……… rol, roll, rollllll………………………….)

1) Jamy — who submitted her entry on November 11th, 2012:
My mum really deserves Method’s Floor & Surface cleaner. She raised 4 kids and is now helping to raise 3 grand-kids including a 3 month old baby, yet she is famous for keeping her floor squeeky clean! That’s how high her standards are – she absolutely must have clean floors that her feet feel comfortable walking on!

2) JT Lim — who submitted his entry on November 29th, 2012:
Ever since the arrival of our daughter, my wife has been busy juggling her roles as a wonderful wife to our daughter and me. She is so tidy that she only wants to do it all by herself without my help as according to her I don’t do a good job. I have never seen her using any home care products that are truly gentle for her hands. By winning the Method Hand Wash for my wife, I hope that she can get the job done without much worries, as these products are gentle to her hands.

3) kristen — who submitted her entry on November 29th, 2012:
I believe my mum and Method products will compliment each other as both are small wonders, despite being small they are efficient.
Since becoming a grandmother she is more meticulous about the cleanliness of her home. Clean floors and laundry has always been her priority and Method products being biodegradable will fit her perfectly as it is gentle to both her hands and mother nature.
This small size wonder will also ensure a clutter free detergent cabinet.

4) YP Tan — who submitted her entry on December 13th, 2012:
Being a mother, is one of the toughest job in the world. So much dedication and effort is needed to play the role of a mother, as well as a wife. My wife has been doing a wonderful job keeping the family together, for the past thirty years. I really have no complains because everything is done perfectly. She is now 60 and I really hope that she will put herself first above everything else as personal well being is the most important thing for her now. I really hope that I can win a bottle of Method Laundry Detergent as a simple gesture of showing her that I care for her.

5) Lina — who submitted her entry on November 30th, 2012:
I would like to win Method Bathroom Cleaner for my mother. She cleans our bathroom on a daily basis and there is no doubt that it is one of the hardest yet most important room in the house to clean. I personally feel that cleaning grout between tiles can sometimes seem like an endless chore for her. She has also been trying to remove tough stains from sinks and shower. I hope and pray that Method comes to her rescue as it will make a world of difference for her.

Method To The Rescue Contest – Extension of Give-Away Contest!

So the kids and I have been using Method hand wash for a few weeks now, and I must say the scent and the pretty colours have really won the entire family over. Not only do the hand washes look and smell good, they do the job perfectly – clean our hands thoroughly.
I looked up the company behind the soaps and was quite amazed by what I discovered. Did you know the founders of method are actually 2 thirty-something school mates, one with brand campaign experience and one with a chemical engineering degree from Stanford? I can certainly see where method the baby gets its characteristics from – earth friendly cleaning products with ultra-chic packaging! They’ve gone from hand washes to floor, bathroom, toilet cleaners and all-purpose ones.

Did you know?

Good Guide awarded Method hand wash (and other products) a score of 8.5 out of 10.

– The hand wash was launched in 2002 and is Method’s best selling item (they call it a best smeller :D)

– Method cleaners remove dirt by breaking the bond between dirt and the surface so it is easier to wipe away. Normal cleaners remove dirt by breaking it down with chemicals.

– Method has wicked good videos, sure to brighten up your day. Check out http://www.youtube.com/user/methodmalaysia

– Most users are so bowled over by method’s looks and great smell and that it does the job well, that they forget that it’s an eco-friendly product as well. According to method co-founder Adam Lowry, “to us, sustainability and green are just aspects of the quality of our product – they are not a marketing positioning … I mean everything should be that way. Just build it into the quality of the product and let the experience of the product be the real hero.”

– Over 60 method products have Cradle to Cradle certification, which is an American comprehensive certification for sustainable design and production. Cradle to cradle evaluates product design (formulation ingredients and packaging materials), the manufacturing process and social responsibility.

– Co-founder Ryan Adam’s mum did not take them seriously at the start. She said “you don’t even make your bed and you’re going to start a cleaning company?” She is now a Method convert and their No.1 fan. Ryan is still a messy boy, though.

– Ryan once drank method toilet cleaner! There’s proof that the products are non toxic.

I read good reviews about the floor cleaners too. Can’t wait to try them out for myself. Keep you posted!

Oh by the way, if you want to win some Method products for youself, for your loved ones or for your friends, you can do so in a give-away contest. The contest has been extended and deadline for submission of your entries is on 13 December 2012! Just click on the link to my earlier blog post and write your short story to stand a chance to win some great Method products!

Range of delectable household cleaning products from Method.
