Chiquita Mom

Two months ago I was contacted by Angela who works with Chiquita. Yes, Chiquita as in the banana. She turned me on to this super cool idea and asked me if I would like to be a Chiquita Mom. After learning more about Chiquita Mom's, of course I said yes.
A Chiquita Mom is a mother who uses nutritious meals, snacks and products to better the quality of life for her family.
To become a Chiquita Mom, they were kind enough to send me the following products to help me find new ideas to better my family and our lifestyle;

  • Chiquita Mom's Flip Book
  • Chiquita Banana Recipe Cards
  • Baby-Safe Chiquita Bowl, Cup, Spoon and Fork Set
  • Chiquita Mom's Grocery Tote Bag
  • Chiquita Moms Freezer Bags
  • and a coupon for FREE Chiquita Bananas
 What I love about my Chiquita Mom's kit is that not only does it provide just about everything one would need to buy, create and make healthier snacks for their family, but my favorite items are the Grocery tote bag and the the recipe cards. I also love the freezer bags, too. You can reuse the tote as many times as you want and I simply love it's BRIGHT yellow Chiquita color. I also love how easy the freezer bags are to use. The instructions are on the bag and it's simply;

Peel the over ripe banana, put it in the bag, date it and put it in the freezer. Done. It doesn't get any easier than that. We're big on freezing our over ripe bananas to use later in delicious recipes and to be completely honest, I never thought to put them in a freezer bag. I've always put them in in the peel and waiting for them to thaw before I could peel them out of the wrapper. It's genius!

Nature’s Energy Boost
Did you know that Chiquita bananas provide potassium, Vitamin B6 and complex carbs? They also have manganese (essential for metabolizing fats, carbs and protein for energy) and Vitamins A, C, E and K, all occurring naturally. Chiquita bananas are high in fiber, fun to eat and naturally tasty to satisfy your sweet tooth. They come in nature’s own biodegradable package. Perfect for the whole family, Chiquita bananas are the ideal natural breakfast, on-the-go afternoon snack or pre-workout boost.
 Not only were they awesome enough to send me a kit, but they're awesome enough to hold some aside for my readers. If you would like a Chiquita Mom's Kit simply comment here and let me know. If we get a good following, five winners will be chosen. This giveaway will close on Sunday, January 31, 2011.
