Win Green Mountain Coffee and a Keurig Brewing System!

Green Mountain Focus Blend CoffeeAn awesome cup of coffee is a beautiful (and healthful) thing. It’s also a necessary part of my day!

If coffee is part of your life, you’ll love today’s giveaway. Ten Appetite for Health fans will Win Green Mountain coffee—plus one winner will also take home the grand prize—a new Keurig Platinum Brewing System (a $180 value)!

Perk up, people, coffee is good for you! We hear about tea’s health benefits a lot, but coffee is healthful, too (good news for those of us who prefer coffee over tea, like me)! Recently the National Institutes of Health (NIH) released the results of a study that found that coffee drinkers were less likely to die from heart disease, respiratory disease, stroke, diabetes and infections. Pretty impressive.

The researchers caution that this is not necessarily a causal relationship (meaning they can’t say that coffee consumption is THE reason for the results), but it does provide reassurance that coffee drinking does not adversely impact health. (Yeah, in the “old days” it was thought that drinking coffee wasn’t so great for us—thank goodness those days are gone!)

Green Mountain Coffee Roasters has just introduced a Wellness Collection of coffees in handy K-cup packs.Pop them into a Keurig brewer and a minute or so later you have a perfect cup of tasty coffee. The two Wellness Collection coffees include Antioxidant Blend and Focus Blend coffees, both of which are Fair Trade Certified. We can’t say that these coffees will change your world, but like Green Mountain says, they “believe in the power of ‘and'”—if you’re going to drink coffee anyway, why not get a little extra value in your cup?Keurig platinum

Here’s the pertinent info on the new blends:

  • Green Mountain Antioxidant Blend—A classic blend of light and dark roasts, the smooth, well-rounded body has a buttery richness. An 8-oz. cup provides 10% Daily Value of antioxidant vitamins C and E.
  • Green Mountain CoffeeFocus Blend—A rich, brew with 50mg of L-Theanine in every 8 oz. serving.

AFH has 10 Wellness Collection prize packs to give to our readers! And yes, one of those winners will also win the grand prize of a new Keurig Platinum Brewing System! This brewer (pictured at right) is fully programmable, allows for different cup sizes (including travel mugs), and brews in under 1 minute. Awesome!
