"Eat Better" Giveaway

January 23, 2013 | 143 comment(s)

Update 1/24 - Giveaway ends January 29th.

Yesterday Steph posted about eating better and included the Beef Barley Soup recipe we tried out last week (it was delicious). We think you should try it—or experiment with other recipes so you know what you can make with your food storage items.

In fact, a customer named Jan posted this on our Facebook a few days ago:
I made enchiladas with a recipe I found at Emergency Essentials with Provident Pantry Freeze dried ground beef (cooked) that I bought at Emergency Essentials and it was delicious! My whole family liked it. Thank you for not only the good products but recipes that you can use the product in. Now I think I am brave enough to use it in a regular recipe because they were great enchiladas!
Want to try those recipes? Here you go:
  
Beef Barley Soup (scroll to the bottom for the recipe)

To get you started, we’re giving away a #10 can and a MyChoice™ can of Provident Pantry™ Ground Beef. That way you’ve got a MyChoice™ can to experiment with, plus a #10 can to put straight into your storage!

To win, just comment below or on our Facebook post letting us know what recipe you’ll try out, then fill out the form below (so we can contact you if you’re the winner).
I can’t wait to hear what you’re going to make. Good luck!
--Sarah

P.S. If you’re interested in trying out food storage recipes and getting FREE food storage, keep your eyes peeled for a great contest we’ll be launching in the next few weeks. (Hint: It might also be a good idea to brush up on your photography skills in the meantime... but you didn’t hear it from me.)


The winner will be contacted via email. If you are the winner and do not respond to our email within 3 business days, you will forfeit your right to the prize and another winner will be chosen. All entries will be verified.
Contest is open to all customers with a US shipping address; however, free shipping of the Giveaway is included for the winner to the 48 contiguous United States only. For any locations outside this area, the winner is responsible for arranging and paying their own shipping costs. If you purchase a Giveaway item during the giveaway and win, we will send you an additional item or issue you a refund for the product you purchased—whichever you prefer.

This promotion is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with, Facebook, Twitter, Blogger or Pinterest. Your entries are going to Emergency Essentials and not to Facebook, Twitter, blogger or Pinterest. Facebook, Twitter, blogger or Pinterest is in no way responsible for any part of this giveaway.
