Giveaway! - Silver Hills Bakery

You know when we hear experts say "choose whole-grain breads"?  Well, Silver Hills bread is the kind of bread nutritional experts are talking about. Except, this bread goes beyond just using whole-grain flours instead of refined flours.  Silver Hills bread is made with sprouted grains, so goes beyond the nutritional protocol of a whole-grain bread.

Silver Hills makes their organic bread without flour. Instead, when they get their grain (from a farm run on wind energy) it is sprouted, in a 36 hour process. This sprouting increases overall nutrition, triples the fiber and improves the digestibility.  There are 9 varieties of this sprouted bread, and they are all packaged in biodegradable bags, and sold throughout most of Canada, Washington, Oregon, Montana, Alaska, Idaho and California.

And, you might think that this kind of 'crunchy-granola-sprouted-grain-bread' must be dense and chewy and not very palatable.  Quite the opposite, I'm happy to tell you!  Silver Hills bread is soft and delicious, and their sprouted grain breads are sold fresh, not frozen (where you might find other brands of sprouted grain breads).

Silver Hills has been our family's staple bread for years.  It offers great nutritional value for children and adults, tastes great, and I recommend it to others often.  So, I was very excited to receive an e-mail from them with an offer for a giveaway for my blog!

Silver Hills is offering you, my readers, the chance to win a gift package with 5 coupons for free loaves of bread and a t-shirt*!  Plus, everyone that completes a short survey will receive a FREE bread coupon!  (*Note:  If the winner lives outside areas in Canada or the US where Silver Hills bread is sold, two t-shirts will be offered as the prize instead of the 5 loaves of bread and one t-shirt). 

So, to get your free bread coupon, skedaddle on and complete this survey.

Then, for your chance to win the 5 loaves of bread and t-shirt, leave a comment on this post.  It can be just your blogger name with any old 'enter me' kind of comment.  Or, maybe you want to leave a note with feedback about Silver Hills bread (if you've tried it), what your favorite sandwich is... or, hey, a bread joke if you have one (we can all use a joke most days)!  Good luck. :)

In our house, we love the Squirrelly, especially for vegan club sandwiches and/or TLTs (that's tempeh, lettuce, and tomato sandwiches). Yum!

I'm intrigued and had no idea that Silver Hills existed! I would totally buy this. I live on the Oregon coast in a small town, and can't currently obtain this bread where I am, but I will be looking for it when I move to Portland in a couple of months. I would love to win this giveaway!

I tried Mack's Flax at a Costco sample station and I will never go back to plain old bread. Mack's Flax is the best thing since (dare I say it) sliced bread!!
