Okay okay… so I missed the boat for yesterday’s weekly Frisky Friday Freebie post. But that’s okay… because today we have a Sassy Saturday Free-Stuff SMOOTHIE Giveaway!! ;)

You CAN avoid the mashed potato pudge this holiday season…. and in fact even REVERSE the trend!

Medical Journals say it’s not the fact people gain 5-7 pounds over the holidays that is a problem. It’s that they never take them off again once the new year comes!

Click here to read an article about a study on weight gain during the winter holiday season — the results show that the weight gained during the holidays has a tendency to stay on!  … Seeing that a little can really add up as the years pass, why not practice a little prevention this time around?

So for This Week’s Frisky-Freebie-Sassy-Free-Stuff, We’re Giving Away 3 FREE Registrations to participate in The Green Smoothie Queen’s 24-Day Countdown To Christmas — with Christmas Spirit! This includes extra bonuses AND a $24 donation to Green Kids!

Continue reading below to find out how this week’s Sassy Free-Stuff Giveaway can help you have a Healthy Holiday AND Save the Planet!!

A Green Christmas for a Healthy Holiday AND Planet!What if I told you that this holiday, you are could LOSE 5 pounds instead of gain them?

What if I told you that while everyone else is busting their zippers, you’ll be slipping into your skinny jeans?

And what if I told you that your efforts to have a healthy holiday this year could even help save the planet!?! Each “Spirit of Christmas” Green Smoothie Countdown to Christmas registration also includes a $24 donation to the environmental charity Green Kids!

Starting on December 1st, 2011, we’re going to kick off a 24-Day “Green Smoothie Challenge” that leads you right up to Christmas Day.

…And you can STILL eat some of your  favorite Christmas cookies!

We’re not expecting you to give up butter tarts and gingerbread cookies completely. ;)   You can still eat what you like. We want to put the attention on adding more greens, not trying to heavily restrict your diet. We find that when you put more healthy foods in, you naturally become less interested in unhealthy eating habits!

The 24-Day Green Smoothie Countdown to Christmas!It’s been proven that when you start your day off with a healthy meal, you’re more likely to eat well throughout the rest of the day. If you start the day off with a green smoothie, you’ll be much less likely to overdo it when the office parties and family dinners start happening.

We’re not saying you absolutely MUST stick to any rigid program. We’re going to give you workable guidelines to help keep you on track and feeling great!

This is a perfect chance to gently cleanse and detoxify your system in preparation for the new year! And for those who are already avid Green Smoothie Slurpers, we can challenge you to take it up a notch, as well!

If you have access to fresh fruits, vegetables, leafy greens, raw nuts and seeds and a half-decent blender, then you can enter to win FREE participation in the 24-Day Green Smoothie Countdown to Christmas!

We’re giving away 3 “Christmas Spirit” registrations of this program, which includes:

  • The Countdown to Christmas Green Smoothie Recipe e-book!Access to “The Emerald Lounge”  — The Green Smoothie Queen’s community message board — where you’ll be able to connect with other participants, exchange recipes, get support and make new friends!
  • Daily inspirational e-mails designed to support you throughout the 24-day program.
  • Loads of tips, suggestions, additional recipes, free teleseminars, and stories to inspire and motivate you to have the healthiest holidays ever!!!
  • Holiday Menu Planner for a Healthy Holiday!The Countdown to Christmas Green Smoothie Recipe e-book  loaded with more than 90 recipes!

  • And, most importantly, a $24 donation to the environmental charity GREEN KIDS! Green Kids tours schools around the country bringing a message of environmental responsibility to children through theatre!
  • 3 lucky winners will each receive FREE registration for The 24-Day Green Smoothie Countdown to Christmas, which includes all the awesome bonuses and charity donation described above!

      I would love to participate in this Christmas Countdown! The winter months are exceptionally difficult for me as I cave into too many unnecessary party treats and beverages. I know if I had a plan that I was following I would stick to it and be proud of myself for that! All funds we have right now go towards Xmas for my kids! Thanks!

      This is just the motivation I need to get back on my green smoothie bandwagon…it truly hurt when I fell off but I’m a food addict and I fight the demons daily! I did just celebrate my 1 year anniversary of being a non-smoker, so now I truly need to tackle my food demons!

      I would love to participate in the 24-Day Green Smoothie Countdown because I absolutely agree that there is no need to gain weight during the holidays, and why not lose it instead? Holidays are about feeling good? so maybe it’s time to feel good about ourselves rather than how sweet those cookies actually taste (which will only lead to “oh god, why did i eat so many of them and look at my stomach” later on). Happy bodies – happy people – happy holidays.

      I want to participate in the 24 day count down to Christmas because I know what doing one of your programs can do for me. I have participated in both a week long and 28 day program this past year. The tremendous support that pours from your emails is amazing. You have a way of speaking directly to someone when actually speaking to many. I would love (and could use!) that support right now with all the expectations and temptations around the holidays. Thank you so much for all you do!

      I would like to shed pounds naturally. After 4 children, its even harder after 40. I gained many pounds after my husband passed away in 2009. Tis would give me a new start. I would like not only start 2012 healthier, but end 2011 healthier than I started. I liked your page on facebook and shared your contest on my page.

Would love some new ideas..plus I could really use the support and accountability to get back on the raw food wagon..I fell off on Thanksgiving and have not been able to get back on track since.

      Hi Tera,

      tweeted your message on twitter () and liked your FB fanpage months ago! :-)

      Love your web presence, the infos you share & your programs!

      I would like to participate in this program because I really want to let go of some kilos and this program just seems to be the best fit for me right now.
      I don’t want to give up my grandmas homemade cookies and amazing Austrian Christmas meals but I would like to get more greens as well. (I was a bit lazy on the greens lately…)

      And it is even a bonus to support the GREEN KIDS charity. I think it is a great idea to give back and to support the KIDS!

      So, I am going to participate anyway… :-) (doesn’t matter if I “win” or not) just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate your work and the work of your amazing team!

      You are an inspiration! Thank you and you all be blessed!

      I want to participate in The 24-Day Green Smoothie Christmas Countdown because I know I can do it. I see it done. I’ve been on and off several times this year experimenting with raw food and getting on and falling off the bandwagon… but I know the time is now. My relationship with food and with my body will change now. I just know the time has come. There can never be a better time than this.

      I’d love to be a part of the green smoothie Christmas countdown because adding in more greens in my life will help obtain my goal of better health by the end of 2011. It will also allow me to teach my clients how easy it is to add in greens into their diets! I love that joining in this challenge, I will also be helping kids learn about the environment. Kids are our future and it is our responsiblity as adults to teach them how to grow up in harmony with the planet we all share. I am a firm believer in getting back to the earth and learning from it. I hope to win a spot to join in with like-minded people to share health and environmental awareness! Here’s to a happy and healthy holiday! I also have ‘liked’ your facebook page!
