Merry Christmas Giveaway: Sweet Hummus

I have to say, this is the giveaway that I am most looking forward to, so far.
I LOVE this sweet hummus. Love, love, love it!

Whole to the Core is the business of one of my favorite friends, Michele. She has invented a sweet and delicious (and yes, super healthy!) hummus spread for fruits, veggies, crackers and breads. Did I mention DELICIOUS?! Seriously! I try to pick up a container or two every time I'm in Melbourne, and it never lasts more than a day or two, sometimes only hours if my dad and kids are with me, because it is so good. Although, I'm sure normal people could make it last a little longer.

Anyway, today's giveaway is for four (4) 8oz containers of sweet hummus. The lucky winner may choose any four flavors. My top two favorites are Cinnamon Raisin and Coconut Lime, although they are really all fantastic.

Here is some info from her blog, that is acting as her website while the real thing is under construction.
All my hummus flavors are gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, and vegan-friendly!

Sweet Hummus Ideas:

A dip for apple, pear, and peach slices

Spread on bananas

Jazz up the morning- spread on your whole grain waffle, toast, or english muffin

Great on whole grain crackers or pretzels for an afternoon snack

Turn it into a savory sauce over pork or turkey

These flavors are packed full of complex carbs, great protein, and they have a good dose of healthy fats. This is a great way to satisfy your sweet tooth and keep you feeling full!

  1. I may have to get you to get me some for my hubby and mom some time! They would love this! And it's gluten free, yay!

    I like your Christmas tradition. We may have to start that.

    One thing I grew up with and am doing now with my kids is opening 1 gift on Christmas Eve night.

  2. LOVE LOVE LOVE Michele's hummus!
    One of my favorite traditions is going to church on Christmas Eve for the candlelight service.

    *I "liked" Whole to the Core on FB

  3. One of my favorite Christmas traditions is going to church on Christmas Eve with my parents. We come home, change into our PJ's, make ham sandwiches and snacks and watch Dr. Suess's The Grinch Who Stole Christmas. I can't remember a year where we haven't done that and I'm looking forward to it next week!

  4. And I follow Whole to the Core on FB, have been for a while!

  5. Amy I love the Birthday cake for Jesus... think we too may start that =) Every year the family and I look forward to riding in the Sanford Christmas Parade with our 4-wheeler club. We LOVE sharing our Christmas joy with everyone =)

  6. The adults in our family don't exchange REAL gifts. Instead, we do our own "gag" gift exchange Christmas Eve night after the kiddos are fast asleep in their beds. And, of course, no gag gift exchange is any fun at all unless you can "steal" the best gifts from those you love. Lots of fun!
