We’ve had some amazing contests over the past 2 years, giving away Vitamix blenders, Glow Bio cleanses, yoga mats and much more.
But today, we’re launching an all-new contest with the single biggest prize we’ve EVER given away on the blog.
It’s the Kimberly Snyder Infrared Sauna… I’ll tell you a bit more about it later in this post!
Why We’re Doing a Recipe Contest
First, let me say that I’m so unbelievably touched by all the recipe pictures everyone sends me on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. I get them every day and it’s so inspiring to see how people are applying the Beauty Detox principles in the kitchen.
To thank you and the entire community with an amazing gift, and hopefully help everyone unleash even more “kitchen creativity”…
I’m inviting you to submit a new recipe with a chance to win one of my brand new saunas.
Here’s how it works:
Post a pic of your own Beauty Detox-approved recipe (even a simple healthy twist on a classic will do!) to our brand new community site, RealizeYourself.com. Many of you are already members of our Facebook community, but as it grows we wanted to create a more organized size so you can easily search for previous posts.
1) Create your account by either clicking on the Log in With Facebook or Create Account buttons at the top right. Then, create an account name and set your password. Add a photo too so I can see your beautiful faces, and don’t forget to click Create Account!
2) Next click Post Something.
3) Click the Photo tab on the right, upload your photo (either with a link or from your computer), give it a fun name, list the ingredients, and the directions.
4) Make sure you select Recipes in the Category field, and then just hit Publish.
That’s it! I’ll choose from 10 recipes with the most likes and reward the winner with the infrared sauna!
By the way, feel free to invite your friends to join RealizeYourself.com to boost your votes…and your chances to win :)
The contest officially starts today, and then lasts until Saturday, November 30th at MIDNIGHT, PST—that is the final day/time to submit any entries.
More Creativity in the Kitchen Is One Way to Continually Realize Yourself
One thing I’ve learned in writing two books and interacting with the community each day through social media is that we have a tremendously vibrant, adventurous group. I’ve seen so many beautiful, inspiring applications of Beauty Detox principles sent to me, it truly warms my heart.
And the willingness to experiment on the journey toward mastery is critically important on this journey. Because success with any way of eating and lifestyle requires that you be able to think outside the box and create healthy meals that YOU truly love.
That’s a big reason why we are holding this contest. I want to inspire you to create something that shows you understand, even begun to master, the core principles, while making the food you create visually appealing and yummy.
The more you’re able to do that, the more this way of eating becomes an easy, joyful, natural part of you—and the more energy you have for other parts of the journey toward realizing yourself.
About the Kimberly Snyder Infrared Sauna
Now, you may be wondering about the sauna and why we’re giving it away. So let me explain it a bit more…
This particular infrared sauna is unlike any other—and very different from full size saunas that you may have heard of, or tried before. Your face and hands are out of the sauna, which is awesome, so you can be on you laptop or reading while getting benefits, and your delicate facial skin is not exposed to the heat.
I’ve been using it at home for the past few months and I’m convinced it’s an incredible health tool, especially for anyone with a busy schedule and limited-time.
The potential benefits of infrared sauna use are vast and impressive. They may include:
Reduced appearance of cellulite – the deep penetration of infrared heat can help mobilize heavy metals and toxins out of your fat cells, which can contribute to the appearance of cellulite. The heaters are targeted at your thighs, hips, belly and your entire legs.
Detoxification — By improving circulation and promoting elimination via the skin, detoxification (especially of fat soluble toxins) can be greatly accelerated…
In our unit the heaters are targeted not only at the lower body, but at your mid-section, right on your digestive organs.
Enhanced Beauty and Skin Health — When your skin cells are clogged or detoxification is sluggish, your entire body is affected. The gentle infrared heat, however, can help your cells “open” and may promote beauty in many ways…
Weight Loss Potential — The more you detoxify, the less your body needs to store fat as a way to protect your organs from dangerous toxins. Also, the sauna can help you burn some calories each day, though the exact amount of calories burned during a session can vary widely…
Pain Reduction — There have been some promising studies that have shown the potential of infrared to help reduce pain through the increase of heat and circulation in key areas. I’ve personally noticed I get far less sore after intense yoga sessions since I started using the sauna…
Overall Wellness — With a better balance of core heat, improved circulation and lower toxicity, you also may find yourself experiencing greater overall health and wellness.
When that happens, any number of benefits are possible—from greater energy levels to better mood and too many to list here.
On top of all these health benefits, I think my favorite aspect of this sauna is how easy it is to use. Because it’s hands-free and focused on the lower 2/3 of my body (again, many of the heaters are directly aimed at the digestive organs, which is fantastic!)—I find myself using it much more often.
I’m literally able to write, have conference calls or do research while all these health benefits are happening.
I’m excited to be launching this contest and sharing this powerful new health tool with you and the entire community.
I can’t wait to see all the amazing recipes that will be created as part of this contest—and I look forward to narrowing down the finalists right after the Saturday, November 30th at midnight deadline…and then choosing the final winner.
Thank you for being part of our community where we can all share and support each other!
In Love and Health,
