Buddy And Bea Book Giveaway

Congratulations to Suzy Davies out of Florida for winning the first book giveaway in August 2016…..

bbThanks for visiting my blog called Your Health Journal. As most of you know, on July 26, 2016, I had my 5th book published called Buddy and Bea, thanks to the support of Snow Leopard Publishing. I have been so thankful for all the support of this project. On the first day being on Amazon, the book made it under the 10K mark for best selling books. For those who know about books on Amazon, this is a huge accomplishment. Most importantly, a percentage of proceeds from each book sold will raise money for the Boys and Girls Clubs of America.

So, I thought it would be fun to have a book giveaway, but at the same time, with your help, I can promote the book via your social networks. Here is how it works.

How to get one entry into the lottery

Each time you just share something about the book on Facebook, Google Plus, Twitter, or LinkedIn, it will go into the lottery as one entry for you. For example, if you share something about Buddy and Bea that was posted on social media previously – – and you shared it 4 times in your social networks, that would count as 4 entries for you. Just make sure you tag Len Saunders somewhere in your post.

How to get two entries into the lottery

Each time you post to Facebook or Twitter the examples below, you will enter into a lottery for the free book with two entries. The more you post about the book to Facebook or Twitter with the examples below, the more chances you have to win.

Here is the post you should place on Twitter so it is seen by myself:

I love the new picture book Buddy and Bea about the circle of life. You will truly enjoy this story – https://goo.gl/N1AoGV @lensaunders

Here is the post you should place on Facebook so it is seen by myself:

Please check out a new picture book called Buddy and Bea which teaches children (and adults) about the circle of life in a loving and fuzzy way. You will truly enjoy this story. Also, a percentage of the proceeds of each book sold will go to support the Boys and Girls Clubs of America! – https://goo.gl/N1AoGV @Buddy and Bea

On Facebook, make sure the @Buddy and Bea leads to the Buddy and Bea Facebook page.

socialnetworkThe winner will be announced some time near the end August. If you win, you will receive the message via Facebook, LinkedIn, Google Plus or Twitter, but the winner will also be posted here. You can have the book delivered to yourself, a family member or a friend.

– There is no fee to participate. There is only going to be one winner from this, and as I said, I will post the winner here as well. This promotion is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with Facebook or Twitter.

BuildASign Review

thumbsupFor me, a thumbs up for this product!

Recently, someone from BuildASign.com reached out to me and asked me to try out one of their products. One of my favorite things to keep creating over and over are my business cards, so I was very excited to try out their site.

They offered me business cards as a product to examine. So, I went to their site. First, I was impressed with the ease of navigation of their site. I knew my way around in minutes. It had a nice interface, easy to understand.

Then, I clicked on the business card section. I decided to create my own card, and not use one of their templates. Their templates were fine, but I wanted to start from scratch. The interface for creating cards was quite simple. If you know how to use Microsoft Word, you can figure this out. It is set up for the beginner.

My cards arrived in a timely manner. They looked just like the online example. The print was clear, image quality remained intact.

I would highly recommend this company to others looking to create business cards. They also offer other printing options such as signs, magnets…..you name it, they got it.

About the company: The need for signage has evolved considerably since the ancient Egyptians created the first signboards. But the process of ordering and producing signage and other custom printed products has always been a complicated and time consuming one. In 2005, we decided it was time for some revolutionary changes. We combined sign-making expertise, innovative technology, and exceptional customer service to transform a centuries-old industry for today’s customer. We created BuildASign.com®, an entirely new kind of custom printing company.

We’ve made it simple for anyone to quickly and easily design, proof and order high quality, custom printed products. Our customers run the gamut from small business owners and non-profit organizations to franchises and major corporations in virtually every industry.

Our easy-to-use, comprehensive online interface gives customers complete control of the design and ordering process from start to finish, including text, colors, design elements, fonts and graphics. Use our exclusive design templates and graphic elements to build your product from scratch, or upload your own graphics, images and designs. Unlike most custom printing companies, you won’t be hit with a set up fee for artwork. Whether you need a single banner or hundreds of bumper stickers, we’ve got a wide range of sizes and top quality materials –all at affordable prices. Best of all, you can complete your order at any time, on any day, from anywhere in the world.

Product Review – Bella NutriPro Juicer

Share Button

juicer1The good folks at Bella NutriPro Juicer contacted me and asked me to review their wonderful product. I have always wanted to try a juicer, so they made it easy for me. As soon as I opened up the box, my first reaction was, “WOW” – this looks awesome. I quickly assembled it, which was very easy to do. Next, I wanted to familiarize myself with the mechanics of the device, then quickly went to work. I started juicing some oranges, apples, and strawberries, just to see how it worked, and how it tasted. It was awesome – not only did it taste great, but I knew I was drinking something healthy. I love this product, and did some extensive research on it!

My top benefits of the NutriPro

1. Bladeless technology preserves more nutrients

2. 67% more vitamin C from Oranges (3rd party test against popular “blade” juciers)

3. 42% more vitamin A from Apples (3rd party test against popular “blade” juciers)

4. More juice from your produce saves you money

5. Easy to clean, all removable parts are dishwasher safe

6. Quiet operation

7. Powerful motor is jam resistant

This juicer uses cold press technology. Cold-press technology uses a single pressing auger to press out every bit of goodness with high quality precision. The bladeless process minimizes oxidation and preserves the live enzymes and nutrients that make fresh juice so healthy and good for you. And, you’ll get more juice with less wasted pulp.

I was told that the Bella NutriPro actually gets more juice with more nutrients from produce than regular, centrifugal juicers. This made me more excited, as I believe this is a great product to help those stubborn children get the nutrients they need if they do not like eating raw fruits and vegetables. Also, this juicer is not a blender. Blenders have spinning blades that create heat and break open the cell walls of the produce, exposing it to oxygen and reducing nutrients. Juicing separates the juice from the fiber of the fruits and vegetables, providing instant nutrition your body needs.

The jam resistant technology can handle most fruits and vegetables with continuous juicing for a quick and easy experience. Fruits that contain high starch, such as bananas, mangoes, papayas, avocados, figs, and peaches are not suitable for juicing. Their soft consistencies can clog the machine. However, when these same fruits are frozen, the pulp spout will eject a creamy, fresh fruit sorbet that is a wonderful dessert!

juicer2The best thing about this product is what you drink not only taste great, but it is healthy. Fresh juice is a rich source of vital compounds that protect our cells against damage and disease and improve overall health. New research shows that drinking pure fruit and vegetable juices can help protect against health and heart problems just as well as eating the same fruits and vegetables.

A few more facts:

Benefits of Juicing
Juicing is one of the fastest and most efficient ways to get the nutrients your body needs. Drinking a variety of fresh juice can help you feel better, look better and have more energy.

Enhance Your Health
New research by award-winning dietitian, Dr. Carrie Ruxton, shows that drinking pure fruit and vegetable juices can help protect against health and heart problems just as well as eating the same fruits and vegetables. Juice is a rich source of vital compounds that can protect our cells against damage and disease and improve overall health.

Experts recommend five servings of vegetables and two servings of fruit daily. And, each fruit and vegetable has unique nutrients your body needs.

Get Your Daily Fruits and Vegetables
Experts recommend five servings of vegetables and two servings of fruit daily. And, each fruit and vegetable has unique nutrients your body needs. To get all the different components you would have to eat a rainbow of produce every day! Juicing is a simple and easy way to integrate more fruit and vegetables into your diet. Just throw your fresh produce into the juicer and drink up.

Know What You Are Eating
With the Bella NutriPro Juicer, you know exactly what you are creating and drinking. Everything is fresh, natural and bursting with nutrients. Store-bought juices can be full of unpronounceable additives, preservatives and added sugar. Even expensive “fresh squeezed” juices are pasteurized – destroying the live enzymatic activity and cooking out many of the nutrients.

Get a Naturally Balanced Diet
Supplements are to supplement things that are lacking. But juicing every day with a variety of juices, and getting the nutrition from raw whole food, is the best way to get what your body needs. Fresh juice is loaded with vitamins, minerals, enzymes and fatty acids that are essential for a life of health, vibrancy and beauty.

Instant Pick Me Up
Subtext: Juicing separates the juice from the fiber of the fruits and vegetables, providing instant nutrition your body needs. And, most of the nutrients are in the juice. Fresh juice provides a super-charged pick me up that will leave you feeling hydrated and refreshed.

Nutritious Calories
Subtext: America is a nation that is overweight, but undernourished. If you drink just two colas a day, it will lead to an extra five pounds of sugar in your diet a month. Juicing can replace those empty calories with healthy, nutritious calories that work to optimize your body’s health.

Fresh Juice is Delicious
Subtext: Not only is fresh juice so good for a healthy lifestyle, it’s delicious tasting. Juice is the perfect way to encourage children and even full-grown picky eaters to eat wholesome and healthy food. Mix sweet fruits with vegetables and greens to get a sweet, vitamin-rich drink that everyone will love. Our recipe page is full of delicious juice recipes that are sure to please.

You can order this product online by clicking here. At the time of this positive review, they are offering free shipping as well as a 30-day money back guarantee. I strongly recommend the Bella NutriPro Juicer to anyone interested in eating healthy.
