Celebrating my Blogiversary with an E-reader #Giveaway

Three years ago today, I wrote my first post which began:

Welcome to Diabetic Foodie! This blog is for people who love food, love to cook and love to eat, but also just happen to be diabetic.

I’ve come a long way since then. I’ve met Patricia Wells and Curtis Stone. I’ve learned that gorgeous photos are a big part of having a food blog. Mine certainly aren’t gorgeous yet, but they are much better than they were three years ago. I’ve gotten to know some amazing bloggers via Virtual Potluck, Sunday Supper and many other projects. And I’ve gotten a lot of free stuff – cookbooks, kitchen tools, flour, grains, olive oil, cereal, snacks, cookware, eggs. The list goes on and on. The life of a food blogger is good.
Kobo Mini
To celebrate how much I love what I do, I’m giving away a Kobo Mini e-reader plus a copy of Healthy Snacks to Go by Katie Kimball of kitchenstewardship.com. Katie was kind enough to offer me a free copy of her e-book to give away and I’m very grateful.

If you aren’t familiar with the Kobo product line, it’s the independent bookstores’ answer to Kindle and Nook. The Grillmaster got the Kobo Glo for Christmas and he loves it. I’m not getting anything in return for talking about the Kobo brand, but I do like to support my local independent bookstores whenever I get a chance.

    My favorite healthy snack is a hard boiled egg with cayenne pepper! It’s filling and flavorful!

    Congrats on your 3rd year blogging, Shelby! Time flies! And, what a great way to celebrate with this giveaway!. Favorite healthy snack is a small handful of mixed nuts or a small bowl of pistachios (they last a long time because of the time it takes to get the meat out of the shell.)

  3. Wendy says

    Healthy popcorn. You can eat a fairly large portion for a few calories and it satisfies my need for crunch!

  4. Jordan D says

    I love dry-roasted edamame for a high protein snack on the go! I’ve also been obsessed with grapefruits lately.

  5. Wilhelmina says

    Congratulations! I love Greek yogurt, pretty much all the time. I just lucked out that it’s a healthy snack! Thanks for the great giveaway

    Love the site ! Favorite treat is a crisp Braeburn apple ,chopped, 1 celery stock , chopped. 1 TBSP chopped nuts prefer walnut but pecan are good too. 1 marshmellow chopped and 1-2 tbsp blue cheese dressing ( I thin with a little water so everything is coated well.

    Combine sour cream and maple syrup in a small bowl; stir with a whisk.

    Combine berries, and spoon into dessert dishes; pour maple cream over berries.

  8. Ronda says

    Mistake previous post, not sour cream,

    My favorite is to stir combining greek yogurt and a drizzle of maple syrup in a small bowl.

    Pour maple cream over fresh berries! Yummy!

  9. Ronda says

    Maple cream is a drizzle of low sugar maple syrup over greek yogurt, over the top of fresh berries! My favorite snack! Yummy

    My favorite healthy snack is salad of some kind – either a green salad, or cucumber salad in the summer or some other salad-like thing.

  11. says

    Congratulations on your anniversary!
    I love eating mixed almonds and nuts, but if I must pick one, I would definitely go for chestnuts!

  12. says

    Lately, I’ve really been liking fruit and nut balls–just dried fruit and nuts processed until ground and squished into balls. So much yum!
