When I get stressed out and overworked, I know that it can be hard to make sure I am still taking time for myself to eat right and relax. According to the Mayo Clinic, stress can cause weight gain. Which for some of us can only lead to more stress! As I head off to work with my students for one of the largest competitions of the year, I wanted to leave you with a opportunity to destress.
The fabulous folks at Oikos recognize that this is a stressful time of year and have offered one lucky Uncovering Food reader a chance to take a moment for themselves. This spa-themed giveaway will help you relax and renew at home and includes coupons for 4 free containers of Oikos organic Greek yogurt, a reusable Oikos tote bag, and the "Take- 5" Anti-Stress spa kit, from Earth Therapeutics, which includes a loofah massage sponge, Anti-Stress massage soap, a body brush, Anti-Stress massage lotion and a soothing gel eye mask.

I get asked by readers if I am being paid to push products. The simple answer is no. In fact, most of the products I write about are ones I have found and purchased during my trips to the grocery store or on the road. Occasionally, a company will send a sample my way and if I believe the product will serve a need for my readers and I would buy the product myself, then I will share it with you. Sometimes I will write to a company after reading about it, if I believe it will help us lead healthier lifestyles. But even then, if the product doesn't pass my scrutiny, it won't make the screen of Uncovering Food. You can trust that every product or recipe posted here has passed through my lips, and that I wouldn't blog about it if it wasn't worthy of you... my favorite readers.
