Orka Steamer Giveaway!

Pin It PIN IT!

I have ONE MORE featured ad space left with the early bird pricing. Email me [realistic.nutritonist@gmail.com] to snatch it up!

Holy Thursday, Batman! Not only did April speed on by, this first week of May is almost over. YOWZA. Luckily I’m doing great on my promise to better organize my life, which as you know, it’s a clusterFFFFFF right now. But, before we hop on into the giveaway, I must say a HUGE belated Happy Birthday to my father!

I’m the worst person ever too because I forgot it was yesterday while I was on the phone with him! Luckily, my mother reminded me and I was able to wish him a happy birthday. Ugh. But I bought him a snazzy new watch to make up for it. Happy belated “39th” birthday dad! ūüôā

Now, moving on swiftly to the giveaway I promised you last week. I know I’m bad at living up to my promises, but that’s another thing I’m working on. You know what I need? An assistant. I”ll pay you in tequila and corn muffins, capiche? Today’s giveaway, though, will hopefully make up for my absent mindedness, because it’s just that awesome.

It’s an Orka steamer! The amazing people at The Big Kitchen Store sent me one to try and offered to give one away to one of y’all! They rock, don’t they?

What’s awesome about this portable steamer is that you can use it on the stove top and the microwave.¬†¬†I used it last night to steam some chicken and frozen broccoli and my dinner was ready in less than 10 minutes. Seriously, I kid you not, 10 minutes!

A lot of people think steaming poultry or meat dries it out. NOT TRUE. In fact, steaming works to keep your meat moist and juicy.

Not only is steaming quick, it’s insanely healthy because you don’t need any fats to cook with. No oil, butter or shortening, just heat!¬†This means you can enjoy your healthy chicken and broccoli with a small dousing of teriyaki sauce and rice noodles and not feel guilty. Because you are still consuming over 100 calories less than if you stir fried in olive oil.

SO! How can you win your very own steamer and recipe booklet from The Big Kitchen?
