Monday Giveaway: 3 Months of Beautiful Meal Plans to Get Healthy!

12 weeks of yummy healthy eats are up for grabs!

Seeing that we’re just a day away from launching our healthy eating site Fit Bottomed Eats (wheee!), we thought it only fitting (Get it? Hehe.) for our first amazing giveaway of New Year New Rear Week 2013 to be super yummy. Like, SUPER yummy. Universe yummy, in fact! That’s why today we are super-duper pumped to give away a full three months worth of beautiful, inspirational meal plans to help you transition into and maintain a healthy plant-based diet.

Courtesy of YumUniverse (Remember those cute little Halloween-themed stuffed peppers? That was them!), this 3-Month Inspirational Meal Plan Subscription includes a beautifully designed and photographed 20+ page interactive meal plan sent directly to your inbox every week for 12 weeks. Inside said meal plan, you’ll get 12 scrumptious recipes (with step-by-step photos, adaptation suggestions so you can change up recipes, and substitution suggestions for those nights you are out of particular ingredients or want to try something different), two snack suggestions and two dessert suggestions that you can add to your plan for the week, and ideas for how to take a plant-based meal and easily add a few ingredients to satisfy the omnivores in your home—without preparing a separate meal. The subscription also include a 35-page welcome packet full of plant-based diet information, inspiration charts, planning tips and other useful goodies.

Ready to get your YumUniverse on? Simply like YU on Facebook and/or follow them on Twitter and then leave a comment below with why you need more healthy yum in your life. We’ll select two winners in about a week. U.S. residents only, please, and winners will be announced in the comments section and notified directly via email. Good luck! —Jenn

  1. I am now following her on Twitter. Thank you for informing me about I have never heard of it but it looks like something I have been looking for to give me ideas on a plant-based diet. I basically make the same old thing or eat frozen dinners. I would like to start the New Year being inspired to cook different plant-based meals instead of relying on frozen dinners.

  2. I’m excited about the launch of Fit Bottom Eats. I just heard about this site the other day and it’s already proving helpful. I’m looking forward to a healthier plant-based diet as I have a chronic injury that is preventing me from exercising for the time being and this sedentary lifestyle has helped me pack on the pounds. I’m simply trying to get healthier as I continue on my road to recovery.

  3. I have Liked on FB and am now following on Twitter. I am committed to living a more healthy lifestyle in 2013 and am always looking for new ideas. Sometimes I get stuck in the same food rut!

  4. I need more healthy yum in my life because I have two meat and potatoes boys and need suggestions and recipes that will help me bring more healthy, easy, options into our meal rotations. Especially more vegetables!

  5. I am following on Facebook! Yumuniverse looks awesome! I can’t wait to read more of her blog and check our her website.

    Having recently switched to a vegan diet winning this would help increase my options for meals. I currently cook the same vegetable, rice, and bean recipes over and over. Please choose me!

  6. I live with 5 guys (hubby, 3 sons & father-in-law). Only my father-in-law would give a vegan or vegetarian diet a chance! So I’d like to try it on my own, but don’t want to have to make two separate dinners every night!

  7. I need more healthy yum in my Life because I have a mad crazy sweet tooth, and do not how to tame it without fudge, cookies or cake ! I love fresh fruit, but it is very expensive and I have a family to feed ; I wouldn’t mind eating veggies to help calm the sweet beast 🙂

  8. Liked on FB! I have gotten into a rut of semi-healthy, mostly just convenient to eat meals that please my meat heavy husband. My goal is to work in more delicious and nutritious options that our lifestyle can support 🙂

  9. I need a little more Yum in my life as my plans for the new year is to better plan my meals and to go more meat free. This sounds like a great subscription to have to accomplish both. I look forward to following on both twitter and FB

  10. I am following on twitter & liked on facebook. I need YUM Universe in my life because I have decided to cut all sugars, dairy and am trying to be more clean & fresh in my eating choices.

  11. In 2013, I want to get back on track with healthy & mindful eating for myself and my husband. Too many excesses in 2012!

  12. Facebook following! I’m getting married in 2013 and its my goal to feel (and look) amazing on my big day by cleaning up my plant based diet!

  13. I’ve been toying with the idea of a mostly plant based diet for a while now but lack the creativity to keep my meals varied and interested. This would be so helpful in making the transition!!! (I follow on FB and twitter).

  14. We mostly eat plant based now but I struggle with too many carbs and not enough protein. i also would love to try gluten-free.

  15. This is the year that I have to have to lose weight. I will be 60 in June and I truly do not want to look like this. Last year I accomplished my first 4 resolutions and this year I just have one. Got to do it!!

  16. I was motivated last Dec. & lost 35 lbs. Then life happened in August…I went back to school (after 20+ years), my kids went back to their sports and we went back to fast food due to lack of time.
    I’ve gained 10+ lbs back and would welcome healthy meal planning help. No more school for me – kids schedules comes first- but I am beginning my fitness/healthy living routine tomorrow. And this would be a double blessing as my husband and kids would benefit also.

    (I’ve also liked on FB and am following on Twitter.)

  17. I liked and followed! I would love to win, because I really want to try some new foods this year. I eat pretty much the same few things over and over and would love to expand my healthy horizons! Thanks for the fun contest!!

  18. i would so love to win this, just diagnosed with gluten problems after already eliminating other foods, but am struggling

    thanks for the giveaway

  19. Trying to spice up my bland diet due to stomach issues and food intolerances. I play it safe and tend to eat the same things but not really thrilled with the same safe foods every day. Yum sounds just what I need.

  20. I just liked on facebook and am loving the facebook site! I recently started increasing my fruits and vege intake hoping to start feeling better! Also my goal is to avoid the processed and expensive “health” foods of our time! This would be perfect to give me ideas for cooking healthily for my family!

  21. I have lost almost 30 pounds through WW and exercise(P90X,Insanity, and all of the Bob Harper Dvd’s). I am getting bored with the same meals that I make weekly. I would love to have some inspiration for new recipes.

  22. I need more healthy yum in my life b/c I eat the same things over and over and over, chicken breasts, ground chicken, ground 1% turkey and tuna, I mix it up a little with preparation and sides but it is pretty redundant and is about saving time and eating lean, not about yummy goodness.

  23. oooh fun! I followed them on Twitter and liked them on FB. 🙂

    I’m ready to make diet changes, because for me, any weight loss will come as a result of that, for sure.

  24. New recipes are like new toys or clothes to me. I like to use them right away and get excited for cooking them. Healthy ones are all the better. Ready to bring on a Yummy (Healthy) 2013! *followed YU on twitter*

  25. I just stumbled on YumUniverse yesterday! Liked them on FB and followed them on Twitter. I’m started on a plant-based diet 1/1. So far so good! BUT I could really use some help with more interesting recipes. YU recipes look great!

  26. Following on Twitter! As a student enrolled in two grad schools, there is not a lot of time to be healthy–this would be PERFECT.

  27. I’m following them on Twitter and would LOVE this because it’s tough to find good meals for a kid who’s allergic to wheat, dairy, eggs, nuts & fish – yumuniverse could give us some great ideas!

  28. Great giveaway! I take a majority of my meals to work and end up eating the same thing several times a week. I could use some new “yum” in my life! I am now following them on twitter! @tara_soprano

  29. I need more healthy Yum in my life, b/c it’s the best thing to add to a healthy life style for my family and me.

  30. Six years ago I set out to loose 50 lbs all on my own. I’ve come close to my goal, but haven’t quiet reached it yet. I could loose a boost to finally reach my goal.

  31. Following on twitter, our body is the only one we have and we need to take care of it and feed it the best we can. This sounds like it is a good start.

  32. And our winners are…drum roll, please…
