{Closed} Peanut Butter 4 Breakfast: $50 Visa Gift Card Giveaway and more!

Yesterday I shared with you one of my new favorite ways to enjoy peanut butter for breakfast.  Today, I am excited to share with you an exciting opportunity as part of the National Peanut Board’s ‘Peanut Butter for Breakfast’ campaign.  Not only will you be able to help people in need with a click, but you also have the opportunity to win peanut butter samples and a $50 Visa gift card!

While most people agree that breakfast is the most important meal, many of us end up skipping breakfast every day.  Reasons for skipping out often include trying to lose weight or not having the time. Yet adding peanut butter can help to make breakfast quick, easy and provide the fuel needed for the rest of the day.

Making time for breakfast and choosing to incorporate nutritious ingredients like peanut butter, which is a source of fiber, protein and good fats, can play a role in maintaining a healthy diet. Peanut butter is a great addition to mornings because it is a natural, plant-based source of eight grams of protein and more than 30 essential nutrients and phytonutrients.

To help make mornings easier, the National Peanut Board is equipping peanut butter fans with nutritious breakfast tips and recipes at Visitors are encouraged to vote for their favorite peanut butter breakfast dishes. For every vote, America’s peanut farmers will donate $5, up to $10,000, to help serve a nutritious breakfast to the hungry.

…which brings me to the giveaway.


The generous folks at the National  Peanut Board have provided me with a $50 Visa gift card and peanut butter product samples to award one lucky reader.

Entry details are below.  The giveaway is open until 5:00p Central Time on Sunday, April 1st.  I will draw one winner using and post the results here as well as e-mail the winner.  If I do not hear back from the winner within 2 days, a new winner will be selected.
