Yellow Oprah’s Favorite Things (Giveaway Time)

Pin It

Happy New Year! To kick off 2012, I thought it’d be fun to do another giveaway. You know, because I’m the Yellow Oprah.

Dear readers, I want to motivate you to complete a Whole30 or 21-Day Sugar Detox — is it enough of a kick in the keister if you won an indispensible secret weapon in the kitchen? You can’t win a Paleo personal chef because slavery is illegal, but how about winning the best slow cooker on the market?

Yep, I’m giving away a Hamilton Beach Set ‘n Forget 6-Quart Programmable Slow Cooker (list price: $59.99)!

Having a slow cooker is almost like having a personal chef because your meals will simmer away while you’re out or asleep. Plus, you don’t need to worry about the house burning down. With minimal fuss and mess, you’ll have a comforting pot of stew or braised meat ready to eat in the evening or when you wake up in the morning. 

Slow Cooker Kalua Pig is perfect for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

Here’s a slew of Whole30-compliant slow cooker recipes that you can throw together in a snap:

Grass-Fed Beef Shanks & Cabbage Stew

Korean Grass Fed Short Ribs

Thai Yellow Curry with Grass Fed Beef Brisket

Lemongrass and Coconut Chicken Drumsticks

Roast Chicken and Gravy

Curried Goat Shanks

Cheater Pork Stew

Kalua Pig

Pork Shoulder Roast

Wanna know how to win?

Follow these rules to enter the contest:

  1. Tweet out your favorite Whole30-compliant Nom Nom Paleo recipe and/or post it on my Facebook fanpage.
  2. Leave ONE comment on THIS post telling me that you followed directions. I repeat — just ONE comment or you’ll be disqualified.
  3. Complete steps 1 & 2 by Tuesday, 1/3/12, at 11:59 p.m. PST

(By the way, this giveaway is NOT being sponsored by Hamilton Beach. I contacted the company to see if they’d be willing to do so, but I never got a response — probably because I’m such a small sweet potato fry. But I dig my Hamilton Beach slow cooker so much that I’m willing to BUY YOU ONE MYSELF. How’s that for love?)

Another Giveaway! Wear My Shirts and Win!

Okay, peeps. Looks like I need models for my t-shirt shop. Wanna help?

If you buy a Nom Nom Paleo shirt, snap a clear, in-focus picture of yourself wearing it. Email your best shot to me at and I’ll put it up in the shop so that folks can check out how the shirts look on a real, live person — you!

Need more incentive? If you also post that picture on my facebook fan page by 6/30/11 @12:00 a.m. PST, you’ll get a chance to win $25 gift cards! I’ll randomly choose one winner and the second winner will be whichever photo gets the most likes. How’s them apples?

Drumroll, Please…

Red Boat Fish Sauce Giveaway!

Pin It


Who doesn’t like free stuff?

Especially if the prize is a bottle of Paleo-friendly, all-natural, first press, “extra virgin” Red Boat fish sauce. This stuff is truly remarkable – it’s liquid umami in a bottle! Plus, it’s not easy to get your hands on (yet!). For example, in the San Francisco Bay Area, it’s currently available only at one store in SF’s Excelsior District.

Dear readers, there are two ways you can win a bottle of this fish-tastic awesomeness. All you have to do is:  

  1. "Like" my Facebook fan page and post on my wall a comment with your favorite way to use fish sauce, AND/OR
  2. Follow me on Twitter (@nomnompaleo) and tweet me your favorite use of fish sauce.

There’ll be two winners — one picked from Facebook AND one from Twitter — so you can double your chances of winning by both liking and following me.

Oh, and to receive a prize, you must have a U.S. mailing address. I’m no xenophobe — it’s just too expensive to mail the stuff abroad. International peeps, if you win, you can always send it to one of your pals in the U.S. 

I know, I know — I’m asking a lot of you. Frankly, even I couldn’t tell you my favorite use for Red Boat fish sauce ‘cause I think it makes EVERYTHING taste better: stir-fries, braises, roasted veggies, you name it! But put on your thinking caps and dazzle me all the same.

To be eligible, you need to comment or tweet by Sunday night, 5/8, at midnight PST. I’ll do a random drawing from the Twitterati and a separate one for Facebook fans and announce the two winners at the beginning of next week. Good luck!
