The Green Prizes for Your Kitchen
Prize #1 – Unjunk Your Junk Food Book
From the creators of NaturallySavvy.com!
We all love junk food on some level -whether it brings up the nostalgia of the after school snacks of your childhood or it is something you sneak in private because you are trying to help your kids eat healthy. I love Unjunk Your Junk Food because it provides the Jekyll and Hyde sides of us with a solution: You and your family can indulge in the treats we all love while still being a green and healthy family!
Andrea Donsky, Randy Boyer, and their team taste tested hundreds of conventional, natural, and organic snack foods to compare quality and flavor in search of the healthiest alternatives for the treats we all know and love. This book is a down and dirty guidebook with easy to read icons pointing you to the information you need to make a decision as quickly as possible. Icons include: Bad Choice Seal, Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down, Thumbs Neutral, Naturally Savvy Seal of Approval(TM), Savvy Pick, and Honorable Mention. You can easily look up a snack you love – like diet cola, toaster pastries, lollipops, fudge bars, soft chocolate chip cookies, microwave popcorn, etc. – and find the healthiest alternatives. I love that this book is small and so easy to reference as it makes it an easy thing to leave in your reusable grocery bags, so you have it at your fingertips when grocery shopping.
I also love that the healthy alternatives are not just catch all products to satisfy one type of treat. For instance, if you are interested in looking up potato chip alternatives, they are divided up by fried potato chips, baked potato chips, and low-fat/light potato chips. In addition, for each section (ranging from Chips, Dips, & Party Foods to Granola Bars & Other On-the-Go Snacks), there is an introduction that succinctly tells you the worst ingredients to be aware of, an explanation of why these treats are bad, and tips for embracing the healthier alternatives. I especially appreciate the section at the beginning of the book that actually explains what many of the ingredients are that we see on food packaging – you know, the ones that are hard to pronounce and that make your eyes glaze over as you try to figure out what they are.
This book is an awesome stocking stuffer for the loved one in your life who is trying to take the healthier path – or the one that simply needs a push in the right direction.

Prize #2 – ReUsies Snack and Sandwich Bags
ReUsies™ are a re-usable alternative to sandwich and snack bags. Each one has the potential to eliminate hundreds of plastic bags. ReUsies™ are 100% cotton lined with leak-resistant nylon and are secured with hook and loop closures. They are easy to clean either by hand, dishwasher, or washer and dryer. They are also food safe and come in a variety of prints for any member of the household.
This would be a fun gift for anyone in your life who is trying to live more greenly! ReUsies are perfect options for:
- Teacher Gifts
- Hostess Gifts
- Stocking Stuffers
- Secret Santa Gifts
You can use them as the gift wrapping for a sweet homemade treat, a gift certificate, a CD, or gift card.
I love the variety of prints and how well they wash in the dishwasher. Since I have a two year old, we literally never leave the house without some kind of snack packed into our diaper bag. I hate using plastic bags, and this is such a fun, easy, and safe alternative.
The snack size bags are good for a half sandwich, crackers, apple slices, etc. The sandwich bags work well for a full sized sandwich, bagel, or a large portion of snacks.
ReUsies are ideal for a green family because not only are you using a product that eliminates the need for plastic bags, they are also free of BPA and phthalates. My son loves pulling his snack out of the fun looking “special package”, and I enjoy the fact that the closures keep the remnants of his snack from spilling all over my diaper bag.
Get your own two pack of ReUsies!
