Unfortunately, my two-week perm, headgear braces, AA-sized bra, and the fact that I thought tearaway pants were couture kept me from getting the guy. Or... from having many friends.
But today... today I feel lucky. And you should too.

Tara hooked us up with some epic Eat Clean goodies!!! Win one of two Eat-Clean Diet and Raw Elements Inc sponsored goody bags! Goody bags include Tosca Reno's favourite Sunwarrior supplements, a special recipe from Tosca and two titles from Tosca Reno's bestselling Eat-Clean Diet series.

Back in November, Michelle stumbled upon a local Toronto based company called Urban Running Girl. Urban Running Girl makes running shrugs...yes, that's right...RUNNING SHRUGS! These shrugs are designed for active women. "The idea of a running shrug came about from the need to keep warm while warming up during and early morning run, particularly in the spring and fall. It's too cool to start with only a tank top or t-shirt, but once you are warmed up and/or outside the temperature rises. Then it becomes too warm for a long sleeve shirt or jacket". These shrugs come in a variety of colours: purple, black, pink, orange and turquoise. The shrugs are made of tech material that wicks away quickly, it also has fold over cuffs that you can use to cover your hands on cooler days!
Prize: One awesome running shrug in your choice of colours!
Omega Crunch Shelled Flax
Regular flax contain a hard outer shell that our digestive system is unable to breakdown so it passes through the body without us absorbing any of the nutrients of the kernel found inside. You can get around this by using ground up flax but the taste leaves a lot to be desired. Omega Crunch however, is produced with shelled flax (flax that has had the hull removed from the inner flax kernel). Your body is able to easily digest the flax seed and reap the benefits offered by the seed. And they taste great! The natural flavour really doesn't taste like anything and you can throw it in granola and raw macaroon recipes, or top of yogurt with a tablespoon of shelled flax. It adds a crunchy texture without the taste of the ground flax. You can also buy it in maple, cinnamon and garlic flavours.
The other thing amazing about this product is that is is made in Nova Scotia. In fact, it is produced in New Minas which is only 20 minutes away from where Suzi lives, and is produced in partnership with The Flower Cart which is an organization that provides training and employment for individuals with intellectual disabilities.
Prize Includes: One 225g shaker bottle of Regular Shelled Flax.
