It’s been a busy couple of weeks so I haven’t had time to post much on the site but thought I’d give a quick Friday round-up on this last one in June.

Before I forget, I thought I’d give these goodies a mention. The company’s PR team kindly sent me some to sample and I loved them, especially the cranberry variety. Here’s some background info on them and also the company has some possible giveaways, details on how to enter below-

Nonni’s THINaddictives are a unique, tasty treat made with wholesome, antioxidant-rich ingredients like crunchy California almonds, savory pistachios, succulent cranberries and delicate cinnamon swirls. Conveniently packaged with six pre-portioned, 100-calorie packs per box at a suggested retail price of $3.29, they’re perfect for the health conscious person on-the-go.

To encourage fans to get addicted to healthier habits, Nonni’s THINaddictives is hosting a series of monthly giveaways as a part of its “Get Addicted to Fitness” program. This month, they’re kicking
things off with the “Get Addicted to Biking Giveaway,” which runs through midnight on June 17. Readers can find and follow THINaddictives on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram to stay updated on giveaways and chances to win THINaddictives, a Fitbit pedometer and other exciting fitness-themed prizes. The THINaddictives YouTube channel also has exclusive insider tips about fun, accessible forms of fitness from exercise experts!

And speaking of giveaways, someone told me about this site that lists things you can win via Twitter. A lot of them are for the UK only, but it’s worth taking a look,

This week the CSA Box had plenty of goodies, a few of the items gave me the inspiration for the next Meatless Monday dish.

Have a good weekend and happy saving.

And to all the Canadian readers of this blog, have a Happy Canada Day.
