Maranatha Nut Butters & Yoga Prize Package Give Away

Comments are now closed. Thank you to all who entered.

Heather Dunham recently wrote in praise of Maranatha Nut Butters… our family agrees that these fabulous spreads are worthy of praise, and we are pleased to offer a GIVE AWAY from MaraNatha (pronounced “mare-uh-Nah-thuh”).

I’m thrilled that not only are these nut butters produced in the United States and are in NO WAY related to any peanut butter recalls from PCA, but also that the MaraNatha Nut Butter Company facility is right here in Oregon (you may recall reading about Ashland and low vaccine rates on ECP).

Here is some information provided by MaraNatha about the Peanut Butter Recall and why we should continue to consume safe nut butters: (Stay with us after the jump for the GIVE AWAY)

“According to a recent poll conducted by Harvard School of Public Health many parents have completely eliminated peanut butter from their family’s diets due to the salmonella outbreak caused by peanuts from the Peanut Corporation of America even though jarred peanut butter was not affected by the recall. It is OK to restock your shelves with this delicious, healthy source of protein. MaraNatha natural and organic peanut butters were NOT affected by the recall and are completely safe.

Here are just a few reasons to love peanut butter:

  • Peanuts contain more protein than any other legume or nut and they are rich in fiber, Vitamin E, Manganese, Niacin and Folate.
  • Peanuts are high in monounsaturated “good” fats and low in LDL “bad” fats.
  • Peanut butter is rich in reservatrol, an antioxidant in red wine that has been linked to cardiovascular health.
  • Compared to conventional peanut butters, MaraNatha’s natural and organic peanut butters have 85% less sodium per serving, no preservatives and Maranatha’s line also includes no salt, no sugar and organic options.

MaraNatha sources peanuts from only approved growers and the company’s stringent food safety and quality control standards include the testing of all peanuts that come into the facility in Ashland, Oregon.  100% of MaraNatha nut butter production takes place at the Ashland facility, a facility that is dedicated entirely to the production of MaraNatha products.”

My fridge always contains a jar of MaraNatha almond butter and we continue to enjoy peanut butter on a daily basis.  Nut butters are a favorite on sandwiches, topping apple and banana slices or in no bake cookies and almond butter bars (head over to Elana’s Pantry for our favorite Almond Butter Blondie recipe… it’s Gluten Free/Dairy Free/Refined Sugar Free).

Now for the GIVE AWAY- MaraNatha is offering a prize package to one of our lucky readers.  The prize package includes three $5.00 coupons for MaraNatha Nut Butters, a yoga mat and a yoga DVD (prize package valued at $75.00).  Contest is open to residents of the United States.  To enter visit MaraNatha’s website and leave a comment here telling us what you like best about the products or the company (While you are there, enter their yoga weekend give-away).  One winner will be selected by random number generation (which sometimes means my four year old gets to pick a number out of a hat) on Thursday, April 2nd.  The winner will be posted on ECP and notified via email.  Comments are open until 7am PST on Thursday, April 2nd.

Eat Well. Be Well.

Comments

  1. What I like best about this company is that fact that they don’t anything artificial or unnecessary to their products. No HFCS! Just nuts! Yum!

  2. I’m already a customer of their products my favorite is their Organic No Salt Crunchy Peanut Butter it really has the creamy texture of the smooth but with peanut chunks in it which really makes it stand out from the other brands!

  3. I love the almond butter. I buy it at Costco, in giant glass jars. I store the jars upside down for a few days…then no stirring is required. I eat the almond butter on apples, bananas, make power-bars with it, mix it with melted chocolate as a fondue, and spread it on buckwheat pancakes with raspberry jelly. Delicious! Please enter me!

  4. I like Marantha almond butter because it is gluten-free so my wife and I can eat it together. It’s excellent in smoothies – especially with banana and chocolate!

  5. I like how Maranatha offer both organic and natural almond butters because the organic almond butter is quite a bit more expensive.

  6. I have their almond butter which is delicious on its own or paired with other ingredients to make a sweet or savory treat!

  7. We are big fans of peanut butter and switched to Maranatha in December. We love how it tastes, that the jar is not plastic, and that it is organic. When the peanut recall hit, we were ecstatic that our chosen brand was safe and clear! We’re never going back!

  8. Their crunchy roasted almond butter (preferably organic when I’m feeling flush) on some toasted bread…time for a snack!

  9. I’ve been wanting to try this! I like that they have different kinds of butters, not just peanut! YUM!!!!

    thanks!

  10. Hmmm, I like the idea of dairy free chocolate chips. That would be nice to try. Plus I’d like to see how this brand of the different butters would taste like!

    Thanks you for the giveaway opportunity!

  11. I love that they started their natural food company before its was the thing to do.

  12. I love their almond butter, because it’s delicious, healthy, and SO much more affordable than some of the other varieties that Whole Foods carries.

  13. The Almond Butter is to die for

    I Like That A Physician’s Health Study of 22,000 men, Iowa Women’s Health Study of 40,000 women, and the Harvard Nurses Health Study of 86,000 women. One conclusion that all of these studies shared was that nut consumption lowered the incidence of heart disease

  21. I think the best thing about their products is that they are safe, pure, and natural. I love the name of the company.

  22. I tweeted this giveaway ….. http://twitter.com/cdziuba/status/1326445902
