Win Green Mountain Coffee and a Keurig Coffee 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 Coffee Focus 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!

Awesome guy huh? :) I sure appreciate it, because I love my morning coffee.

I would love to win!

THIS WOULD BE PERFECT FOR MY NEW LIFE!!!

    Thank you Julie and Katherine for always keeping me informed. I love Appetite for Health’s daily Nutrition Bites!

  141. Jenefer Lynn says:

    For me, coffee is my little relaxation/stress reliever. Being a single mom of 3 kids, all of whom have serious medical issues, I don’t get much time to relax and my stress level is high. Fixing a cup of coffee and taking a few minutes to just savor the wonderful taste and “zone out” for a few minutes keeps me going, lowers my stress, and lets me relax. Without coffee, I honestly don’t think I could function as well as I do.

  142. brenda ray says:

    Coffee is part of my healthy life, because I drink a cup of coffee before my morning workout (which has been shown to improve performance a bit); it’s high in antioxidants (which are important all day); and when I need a bit of afternoon caffeine it’s healthier for me to drink a cup of unsweetened iced coffee than resorting to cola.

I try to add fat free half-and-half and it is my go-to diet crutch. I find that when I’m really hungry, that a single cup of coffee is exactly what I need to take off the hunger. Of course, I keep to all of the necessary healthy guidelines and plenty of water. This is an amazing giveaway! I love how you can perfectly proportion your cup and your flavor of coffee.

Because of his job situation, we are separated at the moment in different states until we find a house so I can move and we can be back together.
