VegNews Celebration GIVEAWAY!


What up, what up, pups? Guess what today is…MY SIXTH MONTH BLOGIVERSARY! That’s right, SnackFace has been here to entertain you for six whole months now! A little overview of what’s happened:
-I acted in a play, Autobahn
Modeled in a Five Star notebook photo shoot
-Almost got cast in a Long John Silver’s Commercial (thank goodness I didn’t, right?)
-Started and ended a loving relationship
-Celebrated MamaJ’s 50th!
-Watched my best friend achieve her biggest goal: she’s Editor-in-chief of our university’s newspaper now!
-Watched my baby bro graduate
-Chose between an internship at Cincinnati Magazine and VegNews Magazine
-Finished my Junior year on top (Dean’s list, yo)
-Moved out to San Francisco to live out a dream working for VegNews
-Started to become a runner
-Partied throughout these six months and loved every single minute
-Made incredible new friends I couldn’t live without
-Met Irishmen who have made me appreciate simple things like a brew and a laugh
-Ate delicious food and lots of it!
-Made the enormous decision to become vegan
-Am living the best days of my life
-Met all of you through writing about my days. I don’t care if they’re boring sometimes; I’m still sharing!

And who knows what else is going to happen! I have loved every moment of blogging, and I can’t imagine stopping doing it. That’s why I’m celebrating with a HUGE GIVEAWAY! Wanna know what you can win? Read through to the end of the post!

That’s right, you have to suffer through what I ate today first. Actually, I ate delicious food, so it shouldn’t be too bad! I’ll make it snappy.

After a lovely run and interval session, I showered, robed, examined a crop of zits on my chin (the hell..???) and then made a breakfast bowl:

Fruit and Kaboch

Fruit and Kaboch

In the bowl: 1 juicy pear, four strawberries, about 1/4 cup kabocha and a Coconut Almond Butter Spice Sauce (almond buttah, shredded unsweetened coconut, almond milk, pumpkin pie spice). Oh yea, amazing!

Then, ya know, I went to work. I was pleasantly busy all the way until I had to make lunch. I made several firsts for me today:

I made lunch, yo!

I made lunch, yo!

What I’ve never done before this lunch: make rice in a rice cooker, use chipotles in adobo, make guacamole, fly by the seat of my pants when making lunch for others. It was fabulous! No, I’m not full of myself; I’m just proud! Look at zeese:

Ah!!! GUAC!!!

Ah!!! GUAC!!!

I can’t even believe I made guac. I’ve never played with avocados before, but I love how easily they scoop out! I mashed two avos with two roma tomatoes, one chipotle with adobo sauce, chili powder, paprika, salt, pepper and lemon juice. Delicious! I served it with a green salad, long brown rice, and a black bean-corn-roasted sweet potato chipotle salad. Heaven.

In the afternoon, I wrote stories and researched for a feature news story that I’ll pen for the website soon. After all the work, I came home hungry and wanting one thing:

Nutha Fu Floor Salad

Nutha Fu Floor Salad

Okay, gotta cut me some slack. I had zilch produce: romaine, last of my cucumber, last of my carrots, pan-seared tofu (just cooking spray today) and TJ’s bomb Peanut Ginger whatevuh dressing! After dinner I had 12 pounds of Stacy’s pita chips with Sabra’s roasted garlic hummus. Clearly, I’m back to my SnackFace ways! Told ya 😉

To celebrate six months of blogging, the ever-fabulous VegNews magazine and the start of the 2009 Veggie Awards (VOTE!), I bring you… The Ultimate VegNews Gift Bag!

The winner will receive this bossy gift:
-One oversized VegNews tote bag (I use mine for my massive Trader Joe’s Trips!)
-An American Apparel VegNews tee (I don’t have one, but I want one so badly)
-Six JUMBO Alternative Baking Company cookies (I know these have two servings in one, but I love to eat the whole thing)
-The most recent issue of VegNews…and…

I so want that giveaway, too! HOW TO WIN:
1) Comment on this post! Tell me what your favorite SNACK OF ALL TIME is. I don’t curr if it’s pita chips and hummus or Cooler Ranch Doritos. I wanna hear!
2) If you have a blog, linkback to this post. Ya’ll have more readers than I do, probably, and this is something everyone would love! I wouldn’t mind a SnackFace addition to your blogroll, either. I won’t peer pressure you, though. Just lemme know what’s poppin’!
3)One more chance for ALL: Comment again on this post to let me know that you voted in the 2009 Veggie Awards! Tell me your favorite category!

DEADLINE: You have ONE WEEK to win this veggie-ful giveaway: from July 1 to July 8, 11 pm!
