Recently, Ready Nutrition hit a milestone on Facebook: 10,000 Facebook friends! In the time I have been writing for Ready Nutrition, I never fathomed how awesome it would be to have ten thousand people like my Facebook page. I am so humbled by this wonderful community and those of you who come day after day to my website and to my Facebook page. You are the reason that the Ready Nutrition community is thriving. As a way to show my appreciation, I’ve planned the biggest event in Ready Nutrition history – a giveaway of epic proportions where there are 26 prizes up for grabs valued at over $1,000!
When I saw that I was about to receive ten thousands likes on Facebook, I knew that I had to show my appreciation and quickly began contacting some of the biggest brand names in self-reliant and outdoor living. As luck would have it, there were many who were very enthusiastic about helping me and kindly donated some of their most popular products. A few of the sponsors for the giveaway are: Mountain House, SOG, Excalibur and Wondermill, just to name a few. Check the prize list out below!

Wonder Junior Grain Mill ($220 value)
It’s a big claim to call your product “The World’s Best” but we know that after you have used the Wonder Junior Deluxe mill that you will agree. The Wonder Junior Deluxe has the versatility and high quality of the most expensive hand wheat grinder in a price range that is affordable to the homemaker. The Wonder Junior gives you more options to mill several types, nuts into nut butters, coffee, flax, and many other items not possible in more expensive grain mills.
Excalibur Food Dehydrator ($100 value)
This 4-tray food dehydrator is probably one of the most used of all of my preparedness tools. This tool is a great way to quickly amp up your food storage pantry with dried goods and prepare for the likelihood of living in an off grid environment. Dehydrated foods are the original “just-add-water” meals. My first dehydrator was a Nesco dehydrator and I quickly found how useful this prepper tool is and invested in an Excalibur food dehydrator. Mark my words, this product is built to last and is a great investment for your preparedness efforts. Here’s a review I wrote on the Excalibur Food Dehydrator.
Mountain House 48-Hour Emergency Kit ($40 value)
Mountain House is my favorite brand of freeze dried foods. Mark my words, the taste cannot be beat! My family and I have used them during black outs and during our outdoor excursions. This 48-hour kit will get you through those minor emergencies. Each kit contains enough food to provide one person 2,100 calories per day: 2 x Breakfast Skillet: Hash browns and scrambled eggs mixed with pork sausage, peppers & onions 2 x Spaghetti with Meat Sauce: A mouth-watering tomato sauce accompanied by tender pasta and beef chunks 2 x Rice & Chicken: Rice and chicken in a savory sauce accented with pimientos
The Wonderbag ($59 value)
This is a great off grid cooking source. The Wonderbag utilizes heat retention cooking methods which are a very fuel efficient method and allows you to cook without the use of electricity. It’s been known to save between 20-80% of the energy normally needed to cook food. It does so because after the food has been heated to the cooking temperature, it is placed in an insulated box where it will continue to cook until it is done. Essentially it’s like a crock pot but it’s double insulated. The makers of the Wonderbag have also kindly donated a cookbook to use along with the Wonderbag.
Ready Nutrition Vegetable Garden Kit in a Can (3 seed kits valued at $79 each)
For years, I have dreamt of creating a seed kit filled to brim with non-GMO seeds. I’m so proud to share that this has come to fruition. The Homestead Vegetable Garden-Kit-In-A-Can is filled with 25 varieties of GMO-free heirloom seeds (Over 5,000 Seeds Total!). We have made every effort to ensure that our open pollinated seeds are 100% locally farmed in America and free from pesticides. As well, special care has been put into our seed packaging so they can be stored for the long-term and ready for use when you need them most. Three lucky winners will receive our exceptional seeds packs. Our web site will be available soon and we’ll let you know when you can purchase these directly, but for now the only way to get your own kit is to win it in our drawing!
SOG Knives (2 knives valued at $172)
A prepper’s knife is an essential tool for bug out bags or for the rugged outdoors. My first knife was a SOG Seal Pup and it still remains my favorite. SOG is renowned for their sharp, controllable blades and quality products and kindly donated two top of the line knives for two Ready Nutrition Giveaway winners: Huntspoint Skinning Knife – This special blade was named best new hunting knives by Field & Stream’s 2013 SHOT Show. Featuring a flat-ground skinning knife shape crafted out of AUS-8 stainless steel, with co-molded handles, and a USA made leather sheath and lanyard hole at the butt of the handle for easy carrying. Designed specifically for hunters, the the Huntspoint belongs on your belt when you’re hunting big game. Bladelight Hunting Knife – SOG has paid extra attention to the exacting demands and needs of hunters in recent years, and this new member of the award-winning Bladelight family is destined to become a favorite among big game aficionados. The six intensely bright LED lights (three on each side of the blade) have a measured output of 30 lumens that’ll shine a whole new light on field-dressing activities. Its dual purpose will be a welcome addition in the woods, finding a blood trail or the way in and out of the stand. The fixed skinning blade – made of 8CR13MOV stainless steel – is anchored to a glass reinforced nylon handle. One AAA battery will provide more than four hours of burn time for the LED lights. A sheath is included.
