Halloween Hotties

Now that we’ve established the fact that I am not pregnant, I’m free to play the field.  Right? Hotties first:


Please don’t close your hand!!


Gives new meaning to the words “smoldering eyes”

Grrr… One tough, arame-eatin’ seagull.


Now that’s hot.

    Love the photos, Katie! You and Lurch would make a great couple. 😉

    And Joaquin… I’ll never figure it out. Have you seen him in the film SpaceCamp? Haha.

    Mmmm… zucchini! I have some raw zucchini sticks in my lunch too! Great minds think alike.

  2. The voracious Vegan says

    I love mashed cauliflower! SO tasty! And I think all your spooky pictures are adorable, totally getting me all excited for Halloween!

    And about my darling Joaquin…let’s just hope this is a phase….

  3. Jenny says

  6. ~Jessica~ says

    I adore the song ‘Monster Mash’ and always have a huge grin plastered on my face whenever you make your version or reference it.

    I think my favourite shot is the Incredible Hulk picture…how’s that for a Green Monster 😉



  7. Jenny R. says

    omg that nottie is vegan?? agreed…what happened to him 🙁 i’m thinking a severe B12 deficiency that made him go whack. Katie, after Halloween you neeeeed to post doggy costume pictures…pretty pleaseee

  8. ssandeverythingnice says

    i must say, you’ve stolen my heart with that mashed cauliflower. i absolutely adore cauliflower and can i assure you i will be trying your recipe soon. and it’s vegan too boot! i couldn’t be happier :). and have you tried the chocolate mole larabar? it’s SUPER good. knowing your chocolate covered life, i thought you might like it.

    mandie 🙂

  9. Tess says

    Ooo this is a toughie! Well as a college student I would DEFIANTLY go for those things I can’t typically spend money on : ) I would get calcium or iron supplements, chia seeds, JOCLAT BARS for sure, and something new that I haven’t tried before so I could experiment with it!

  10. Demelza says

    Well, from iherb’s site think I would definitely indulge in some cacao powder, the Amazing Grass chocolate powder (I’ve really been wanting to try that!), and the Agar Agar~

    Haha, in general, though, I’d have to agree with Tori–definitely some coconut butter. ^^

  11. Renée says

    I would buy some Artisana coconut butter because I can’t find it in stores and shipping online it’s so expensive, but I want to try it!
    I’d also buy some nut butters, Health is Wealth Chicken-Free Patties, and probably some Luna bars!

  12. elaine says

    thanks for holding this wonderful giveaway! I would pick up some spirulina and maca powder if I won. I think it would kick my energy into gear!

  13. Julie Inderbitzen says

    i have NEVER had coconut butter or oil, so I would buy both of those! I would also try cocoa bliss… Thank you!!!

  14. grace says

    I LOVE iHERB.COM! I shop there all the time! I would probably get some stevia, some skin care products, and try out coconut butter or cashew butter, because I haven’t had them yet.

  15. Kelly Michelle says

    I have been DYING to try Sun Warrior but it’s just not in my budget. This would be the perfect opportunity!

  16. Nicole P says

    Katie! I would love to buy some Artisana coconut butter because I have never seen them in my city! I would loveee to win this giveaway! Ah 🙂

  17. Melissa says

    i would get jars and jars of nut butters and chocolate flavored energy bars hehe they are like candy bars in disguise!

  18. haylee says

    I would probably pick most of the stuff I wish I had more money to spend on 😀 like Jay Robb protein stuff, xanthum gum, NuNaturals Stevia, oh and chia seeds :D!!!!

  19. Christin L. says

    I would definitely get some Navitas stuff… love the cacao powder and nibs, and I need some more chia seeds too! I’d get some more coconut butter and maybe some sea veggies… love dulse!!

  20. Ava says

    I would spend my money on snack food (the good kind) like nuts and dried fruits and cacao nibs so I can whip up some trail mix to keep my tummy happy during class : )

  21. Rick says

    I am a coconut butter freak so i’d get me some coconut butter…tons of it 😀 it’s that time of year when coconut butter is already soft and icing-like in my apartment since it’s not air-conditioned…loving it!

  22. lauren d says

    oh my gosh. I would use the 50$ to buy all the uber healthy goodies that I felt were too expensive for me to justify getting for just lil ole me! perhaps some gums or exotic dried fruits or try a healthy powder of some sort?!

  23. Lori says

    I would buy Agar Flakes because I can’t find them anywhere and want to try your alfredo sauce! I would also get more chia as I am almost out. And maca and artisana coconut butter. So many choices…

  24. Beth says

    I’d go with the arame, since I’ve never tried it. I’m NOT a fan of sea veggies either, but you’ve convinced me to try it!

  25. Stefanie says

    I would get some agar flakes and some sea veggies to try. If there was anything left I would get some type of NuNaturals extracts. Maybe some type of chocolate. There are so many options. 🙂

  26. Kate says

    Great giveaway! I would buy Navitas Naturals maca powder and dried yacon slices. I also would try the Sun Warrior protein powder…all stuff I have yet to try b/c of cost so I would love to win the giveaway!

  27. Heather says

    what a great giveaway! i would spend it on chia seeds and coconut butter because i have been seeing them all over the blog world and haven’t had a chance to buy either! i would also really like to try the probably also some nunaturals liquid stevia (almost out of first bottle i bought and i think i am hooked!)

  28. Tara says

    I would spend it on maca powder. I just can’t justify buying a whole bag for myself because i don’t know if I’ll like it or not!

  29. lunchiemunchies says

    The website looks amazing! Such variety and good stock. This is so tough. I think I would definitely get some Vital wheat gluten because you can’t get it over here and I want to make seitan and chickpea cutlets! Oh and Amazing Grass! Again stuff you can’t get in England.

  30. Kyle says

    I’d definitely stock up on some more Spiru-tein! I’m addicted, unfortunately. The Cookies N Cream and the Chocolate Peanut butter swirl are amazing!

    Or I’d try to break my addiction…and shop around for some maca or probiotics!

  31. Alfreda Michele says

    I buy the DHA to but a different brand. And gums for shakes. I could always use more of those. Love your blog by the way.

  32. Zuzanka says

    I’d choose some raw chocolate and definitely some coconut butter..I was thiclose to buying it soo many times and I don’t know if I can resist any longer!

  33. Allison Dipper says

    I’d probably buy nutritional yeast, coconut butter, and some chia seeds. All things that are too expensive for a college student’s budget!

  34. Mary says

    I’d try coconut butter, because I never have and it looks so good! and then buy lots of nut butters. also, I’d try jocalats!

  35. Dame Noire says

    Wow, I love i-herb! They are one of the few companies to ship to Europe! I’d love to try all the stuff I can’t find around here, like Luna’s, Jocolat, oat bran…

  36. AB says

    $50? Really?! Wow! Let’s see… I’d definitely get some coconut oil and chia seeds. Maybe some cacao nibs and lucuma powder, too. Yum-yums galore!

  37. Rachel says

    If I had $50 to spend on iherb I would probably buy tons of Larabars or Clif Bars since they save my life while I’m busy doing the college thing. TONS of Yogi Tea (LOVELOVE). And probably some Omega 3 supplements since i’m pretty concerned about that stuff.

  38. Ace says

    What would I buy? Protein powder, because I can’t afford it. Coconut oil, B vitamins, and stevia (I just ran out)… oh, my!

  39. Sharon says

    I would buy some mangoes – I have been too cheap to get a caselot of them, as they haven’t been on sale just yet.. lol

  40. Samantha says

    Definitely want to try arame bc I don’t think I’m keen on most sea veges either (except nori) and I want to give them a fair shot bc I know how good they are for you!

  41. Melissa says

    If I won the shopping spree I would love to try some Larabars and Clif bars…I can’t find any near where I live and I would love to try them!

  42. Teresa says

    I would love to try anything from Navitas Naturals. They have so many fun and unique powders and blends. Definitely I would only get new (to me) products that I can’t find in my neck of the woods.

  43. jellyfish says

    Oooh, I’d try chia seeds, because they look great, and probably nutritional yest. It sounds so… nutritious!

  44. Gelsey says

    jars of nut butter until my arms couldn’t possibly carry anymore, and then some chia seeds – never had them!

  45. Sara says

    If I had $50 I would buy chia seeds, marys crackers, NUT BUTTERS!, nutritional yeast, protein powder, and LARABARS (obviously). LOVE!

  46. Marissa O says

    larabars, luna/clif bars, delicious almond and peanut butters, nutritional yeast, wheat germ, protein powders, bobs red mill products, chia seeds, and cacao nibs

    (I’d buy as much of that as I could with $50)

  47. chloe says

    Well i would definitly spend it on some delicious trail mixes and nuts, vegan chocolates of course, oats! and grains of all assortments and if i had anything left id get some tofu and tempeh 🙂

  48. mary says

    I would buy things that I wouldn’t normally buy for myself, but that I would really like to try. And probably a new flavor of nut butter of course!

  49. Maddy says

    I would DEFINITELY buy protein powder. I’ve got one bad experience under my belt and need to get me some chocolate so protein powder can redeem itself 🙂 . larabars and chia seeds go on the list as well, of course.

  50. Alyson says

    I love to “window shop” at iHerb. If I had $50 to spend there I’d buy vanilla stevia, raw cacao powder, goji berries, and the gums for my smoothies!

  51. Karen says

    Thanks for sponsoring the giveaway Katie!

    I would spend my $50 on some of the great Navitas products that are a bit out of my price range to buy normally but am dying to try.

  52. Rebecca says

    I would spend the money on Maca powder (have been dying to try it but it’s rather expensive) and ProBar Fruition in Blueberry because they are so yummy!

  53. ionlyliveindreams says

    Mmm, those Jocalat bars look sooooo good, I’ve never tried them so I would definitely try those. And I would get some coconut oil because it’s so darn expensive here, the health food store in my tiny little town sucks 🙁

  54. Sarah A says

    Larabars – hands down the favorite bar I’ve tried (but I’m a bit too poor to try things like wild bars, sadly) – Thanks for such a great opportunity!

  55. Amy says

    yum—marys crackers- I can never justify spending $5 on crackers…but with an extra$50 I could! and some seaweed products-and to see if I can sneak some in on my husband!

  56. Sarah L. says

    I would definitely purchase the Amazing Grass, Green Superfood, Chocolate Drink Powder in the Chocolate Cacao Infusion flavour because I am a smoothie addict, always trying to get more greens in my life but loooooooove chocolate/cacao. Yum! Perfect combo from me.

  57. Jo says

    so many things!! cacao nibs, coconut butter and chia seeds to start… And definitely Larabars as its impossible to get them here….. and the rest!

  58. HVL says

    I’d definitely get the coconut butter to try it as a spread like you do (sounds divine!). And I’d plump for some Jocolat bars too. I’ve only ever had a couple of flavours of Larabar… they don’t sell that many up here in the north of England :(.

  59. Kaysie says

    Funny at the top of your posts you say “I’m not pregnant” because that is what I’d spend my money on… some rainbow light prenatal pills and dha. SO darn expensive! And maybe a few of the tropical fruit tart lara bars… so good! you should make a fudge baby flava of that miss katie!

  60. Melinda says

    Great Giveaway!! 😀 If I had $50 extra to spend on healthy foods I would buy: Amazing Grass Bars and Jocolat Bars- I love chocolate! and Coconut Oil!

  61. Sarah says

    OMG, I have been dying to try coconut butter and raw cacao powder!!!! Honestly anything on that site would be AMAZING!!!!

  62. Alex says

    Hi Katie!

    I’d definitely want to buy some coconut butter – I’d use it with fruit, to make chocolate-coconut-frosted fudge babies, or on carrot cake muffins. I’d also definitely buy some seaweed. Now that’s summer is on its way, its a good time to use it to make a salad.

  63. Sarah says

    Hi Katie,

    I would get some liquid vanilla stevia and some jocalat bars I don’t think you can get either in the UK and you made them sound exciting 🙂 Oh and some Desert Essence shampoo cos it’s expensive here.

  64. sarah says

    oh, this is a great giveaway! i would probably buy raw cacao powder (impossible to find where i live) and any of the gluten free products that are on the website (SO MANY!) thanks 🙂

  65. adancingyogini says

    i would get some sea veggies too, maybe some fancy agave or try some raw tahinni. hmmm what else, chia seeds perhaps and lara bars for sure.

  66. Maryann says

    I would buy a ton of new nut butters because I have been reading about SO many that i want to try! I would also buy some Kumbacha from whole foods, some lara bars, and some Natures Path cereal!

  67. Abbey says

    Ohhhh! I want larabars, nut butters, coconut oil spray, hair gel, and some of that crazy seaweed stuff you got! I am in school and unable to spend “extra” on these items very often so unfortunately I run out of them…a lot. 🙁 Yay for i-herb!

  68. Alexis says

    I’d get xantham gum, maca, and probably some of the bars I’ve been wanting to try but just seem out of the budget!
