Ten book giveaway and sign up for my semi-rare newsletter!


This past weekend My husband and I celebrated our ten year wedding anniversary. I really can believe that we have been married for this long. It feels right and normal so there’s no shock at the passage of this milestone.

What I want is more time with my husband and our kids as well as with our family and friends. Life is so fleeting and I don’t feel like I’m getting enough of their physical presence.

I’m trimming my life down and giving away cherished possessions. I want to focus less on stuff and more on people. So this giveaway is for 10 books plus one little blue journal. Every book is brand new aside from the last one. Here’s your prize pack:

  1. Dirt Cheap Green Thumb
  2. One Minute Meditator
  3. Totally Together: Shortcuts to an Organized Life
  4. Food Rules: An Eater’s Manifesto
  5. Mollie is Three: Growing up in School
  6. More Make it Fast, Cook it Slow
  7. Sharing Sweet Secrets, Gluten and Wheat Free
  8. More Fast Food My Way (Jacques Pepin)
  9. Gourmet Every Day
  10. Easy Food for Utter Indulgence (I bought this book used, but I just loved it, mostly for its decadent title!)

To enter, you *must* leave a comment on this post. For a bonus entry, Like Fed Up With Lunch on FB and tell me in the comments (either in your original comment or make a new comment).

For another bonus entry, sign up for my new newsletter. I will be making some changes around here and starting some new projects…hopefully that is. I need a little person to start sleeping through the night first! I’m still losing some crucial brain cells due to lack of sleep. If you would like to come along for the ride, sign up below. I promise that I will not abuse your inbox. Most likely you will not receive a newsletter more than once every six months!

I will choose one person at random to win everything on July 27th! Thanks everyone!

    Those books look interesting! Even if I don’t win, I might be checking some of them out on my own.

    I’m not actually entering the giveaway, just leaving a comment. I, like you, am trying to declutter my life. It’s so hard! I just wanted to let you know what a great idea this is. It’s always nice to know that your stuff will go to a good home/be wanted/be appreciated. What a great idea. I might just try it myself. Here’s hoping you get some sleep!

  9. Tammy1409 July 16, 2013 at 6:05 am #

    I would love to “help” you declutter and am very interested in reading your books!

    I love cookbooks, and so many of those sound great! I am tip-toeing towards GF and dairy-free, and the Sharing Sweet Secrets book would be a big help. I already like you on FB, so I’ll pop over there with another comment. Have a happy day!

    10 years! That’s great!

  24. Michaela July 16, 2013 at 5:52 pm #

    I would be ecstatic if I won! I’ll be a senior in high school in the fall and I understand and experience firsthand the horrific quality of our school lunches, the ones I stopped eating in first grade. These books would be lovely, as I am taking a closer look at food (specifically the chemistry aspect of it, food safety, etc.), but I enjoy cooking nonetheless. Happy Anniversary!

  25. Lisa July 16, 2013 at 6:28 pm #

    I would love to win the books. I am a college student studying food and nutrition and I enjoy reading in my spare time.

    Good idea and a good thought! Ironic that you will be paring down and someone will have more. Ha!

    Congratulations! That’s such a blessing. Less on stuff… Sounds like a great idea and you’re obviously focused on the right thing.

    P.S. “semi-rare” is an awesome description, I LOLd at that one 😀

    I have worked at an elementary
    School for over 6 years.
    It sickens me about the food we serve these children.
    Everything is processed and full of sodium and sugars.

    I can’t even eat a lunch there as it makes my physically ill.
    I’m thinking of going to the person in charge of the menus.

    We need more fresh foods. We do have fruit and salad on the salad
    Bar but the main dish is always processed food.
    A typical week

    Packaged waffles chicken sausage

    Mini packaged hamburgers

    Chicken nuggets that are absolutely disgusting

    Packaged pizz

    Chicken hot dog that taste like salt

    Chicken strips that taste like hot dog meat

    I can’t even eat the food there or I get I’ll. I can’t believe we serve this to our children.
    I could only agine how it effects the children’s school performance.
    Something needs to be done.
