Win Stuff!

It's time for another Eggface giveaway! A chance to win a 30 day supply of Building Blocks Vitamins Spearmint B-12 Spray

I am so thankful that I had weight loss surgery I feel soooo much better. I no longer need to take the 8 prescription medications I was on for GERD, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and sleep apnea. Weight loss surgery resolved all my comorbidities but there are some lifelong rules I have to follow... one of which is taking vitamins faithfully. Seriously so many post-operative issues and complications can be avoided if we just make sure to take our vitamins every day.

Not all vitamins are created equal.

From Building Blocks website: "Building Blocks Vitamins-Essential Bariatric Supplements were developed to address the specific needs of the surgical weight loss patient. The product line was designed by a team of bariatric professionals with health and success of the bariatric surgical patient in mind. Created to address the nutritional malabsorbtion problem and the restrictive effects of bariatric surgery."

If you are suffering through a nasty, dusty tasting sublingual B-12 pill. You must try Building Blocks Vitamin B-12 Spray - It tastes like spearmint breath spray but is delivering 1,200 mcg of Vitamin B-12. The patented Nanoceutical Delivery System reduces the size of the vitamin molecules into "nanodroplets" and this I'm told helps to increase absorption benefits. I love it. I keep it on my desk, I reach over twice a day and do three squirts. No nasty taste or mouth feel. Just yummy spearmint like I chewed a piece of gum. Some sublingual B-12's seriously leave you feeling like you ran your tongue across the baseboards in an old house. This is actually enjoyable.How to enter: Just leave a comment (include your name and an email addy) on this blog posting by Friday, March 19th, midnight (Pacific time) and sometime Saturday the 20th. I'll draw a name using a random number generator and announce the winner here on the blog! I will also email the winner at the addy posted. You'll have one week (7 days) to respond to my email or another winner will be chosen.

One COMMENT ENTRY per person. Remember blog comments are moderated so there may be a slight delay (up to a few hours) in seeing your comment/entry post. Giveaway is open to anyone in the United States (48 contiguous, Alaska & Hawaii.)

Even if you don't win this, I highly suggest that you get it from BB. I won a bottle from BTV, and I just love it! Shelly's review is right on, and if you spray it when you're snacky, it helps take that away because you feel as if you've brushed your teeth. It's good stuff.

And I would love to win another bottle! Thanks, Shell!

Seriously, I don't mind my cherry-flavored sublingual B-12; I actually prefer them to taking my nasty chewable vitamins or chalky calcium citrate powder. But I LOVE the idea of a multitasker B-12: vitamins AND breath spray?? WOW! Sign me up!! :)

Hello,
I would love to be entered in your contest. I love your recipes. I just made several batches of different crustless quiches because I go back to work next week and need something quick and easy to pull out of the freezer (I am 6 weeks post op) These are now sitting 2 per bag and ready to go. That with a little salsa should be a quick and easy meal.
