Christmas Giveaway (Vitamix + Downshiftology Meal Prep Cookbook)


This post may contain affiliate links. See my disclosure policy.

It’s that time of year for our annual Christmas giveaway! But this year I’m not only giving away a Vitamix, but also a signed copy of my Healthy Meal Prep cookbook!

It’s always so much fun for me to give these blenders away and brighten someone’s day. And today, one reader will have a chance to win my most prized kitchen tool — the Vitamix A3500 (read more about it here)!

Plus, you’ll be able to use this Vitamix for several of my favorite recipes in my meal prep cookbook! That includes recipes like my creamy white gazpacho, banana berry nice cream, all the hummus(s) you can imagine, and yes, even a dessert – my key lime tartelettes!

How To Enter the Giveaway

  • Leave a comment at the bottom of this post telling me which city and state you live in (please include your correct email address in the comment form, to contact the winner).

Giveaway Terms

  • This giveaway is open to those 18 years and older from the US and Canada (I wish I could make it global, but unfortunately, Vitamix can only ship to the US and Canada).
  • Entry closes at midnight on Thursday, December 22 and winners will be announced on Friday, December 23.
  • The winner will be contacted by email, announced in a newsletter next week, and updated on this post!

Good luck Downshifters! – xo, Lisa
