{Giveaway} Dehydration Station

Hiiiiii 😀 Happy Indian Food Wednesday! How’s your day going?

I’m so glad you guys liked the video I posted last night– pretty amazeballz, huh? I also LOVED reading about your pets’ nicknames. Glad we’re not the only weirdos out there 😉


(check out that LEG sticking out! She’s so funny)

We just got back from this morning’s 30 minute walk, and also went to the dog park (DP) so Bella could chase her friends around and collapse in the dirt.

B-fast for the Pilot:


(Sourdough English muffin with sundried tomato goat cheese, organic turkey, an over easy egg on each side, and 1/2 avocado with berries)

Perfect protein pancakes for me:


BANANA SPLIT protein pancakes with a square of dark chocolate, 1/2 banana, organic strawberries and a drizzle of maple syrup.

Yes, yes, yesssssssssssssss <—-foodgasm

So I wanted to say a little “thank you” for being so lovely and supportive since the Pilot has been home, with house hunting and life in general, so I asked my friends at OpenSky if we could do a lil giveaway.

When I picked the item, I wanted it to be something I use all the time and LOVE, so it was really an easy choice.


Want a dehydrator??

I use mine almost every day to make my all-time favorite snacks and treats.

From kale chips:

Raw breads and crackers

    One word…ROONS!

  2. LisaG on April 7, 2011 at 12:40 pm

    I need one!! I would make sundried tomatoes; I’m addicted to them served with crostini, goat cheese, basil, balsamic. I’m also trying to get my mother to eat healthy since she has been recently sick. So, I’m thinking of kale/collard chips and dried fuit, anything.

    • Fitnessista on April 7, 2011 at 1:12 pm

      that sounds AMAZING. hope your madre feels better soon <3

  3. Amanda on April 7, 2011 at 12:44 pm

    ‘roons with a fitnessista training session!

  4. Laura G on April 7, 2011 at 12:46 pm

    Kale chips!

  5. Bridget on April 7, 2011 at 12:47 pm

    What a kick-ass giveaway!!! I would most definintely try my hand at some ROONS!! They are drool worthy!

  6. Nikki G. on April 7, 2011 at 12:52 pm

    Love the giveaway!!! My first dehydrator snack will definitely be some amaz-balz ‘roons!

  7. Shannon on April 7, 2011 at 12:55 pm

    I would LOVE to make my own dried fruit! Holy YUM!!

  8. Meredith on April 7, 2011 at 12:56 pm

    I have always wanted a dehydrator! There’s an organic cafe across from my office that sells raw + vegan desserts and I’m absolutely obsessed with their raw Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies (I could seriously eat one everyday)… so I would definitely use the dehydrator to re-create something similar!

  9. Jules on April 7, 2011 at 12:56 pm


  10. JenP on April 7, 2011 at 12:59 pm

    I’d make granola. Last time, it melted the plastic trays on the dehydrator my in laws gave me. Needless to say, I returned the dehydrator. It was good granola!

  11. Brieann on April 7, 2011 at 1:02 pm

    The first thing I’d make would be cauliflower pizza crust for a healthy pizza splurge!

  12. maria on April 7, 2011 at 1:05 pm

    For sure

  13. Danielle on April 7, 2011 at 1:07 pm

    That’s a tough call between kale chips and ROOONS!

  14. Jennifer on April 7, 2011 at 1:07 pm

    DUH – macaroons! Winning!

    • Fitnessista on April 7, 2011 at 1:09 pm


  15. Minna on April 7, 2011 at 1:24 pm

    I think the thrill in not knowing what to make is pretty exciting in itself!

  16. Nicole on April 7, 2011 at 1:30 pm

    I would make Kale Chips. I have never had Kale so I think this would be a good way for the whole family to try it for the first time.

  17. Brooke on April 7, 2011 at 1:57 pm

    Kale chips!!!! I always burn them in the oven or they are soggy I would love to try them low and slow in a dehydrator! Yum yum!

  18. Samantha on April 7, 2011 at 2:00 pm

    I would make mary’s style crackers, yummy yum! And kale chips!

  19. Dani S. on April 7, 2011 at 2:10 pm

    Everything. Much like when I got a fryer we fried EVERYTHING. If you can eat it, I’ll try to dehydrate it.

  20. Aria on April 7, 2011 at 2:13 pm

    OMG I’m getting married in October and I just registered for the baby sister version of this one haha 🙂 so I would of course love the real deal! I would love to make apple chips (obsessed!) and roons!

  21. Reagan on April 7, 2011 at 2:13 pm

    I want to make either kale chips or your ‘roons!

  22. *Andrea* on April 7, 2011 at 2:17 pm

    I definitely make a large batch of granola. Then some kale chips!!

  27. Katie on April 7, 2011 at 2:53 pm

    I’ve always wanted to be able to make my own dried fruit!! And kale chips… Yum!!

  28. Emily on April 7, 2011 at 2:57 pm

    Oh the possibilities! I would first have to make ‘roons, because yours always look amazingly delicious and I’ve always been SO curious what they taste like! And then I would dehydrate veggies as a healthy alternative to chips for shoveling hummus into my mouth.

  29. Rayna on April 7, 2011 at 2:59 pm

    Dried mango! I’m obsessed with the ones at Trader Joe’s and I would love to make them on my own.

  30. Lauren on April 7, 2011 at 3:04 pm

    Kale chips for sure!!!!!!

  31. Jennifer on April 7, 2011 at 3:44 pm

    I have been very intrigued by your eggplant bacon, so I would have to try that. After that the sky is the limit.Kale chips, raw desserts, roons, raw crackers I just can’t deicded what to do first!!!!

  32. Lauren on April 7, 2011 at 3:46 pm

    I have been dying to make kale chips! That would pe the perfect thing!!!

  33. Danielle on April 7, 2011 at 3:49 pm

    I would go all out and try something totally experimental, what that is, I don’t exactly know.

  34. Amanda on April 7, 2011 at 4:06 pm

    I’m planning on making veggie crackers!

  35. Esther on April 7, 2011 at 4:08 pm

  36. Robyn on April 7, 2011 at 4:15 pm

    I’d make dried fruit!

  37. Janalyne on April 7, 2011 at 4:44 pm

    Kale chips! And other yummy things from my new Ani Phyo cookbook…my brother just bought me the cookbook since I’m starting on a 6 week candida cleanse and am very limited in what I can eat. A dehydrator would be awesome!

  38. Rachel on April 7, 2011 at 5:02 pm

    Banana Chips!

  39. Lauren @ Team Giles on April 7, 2011 at 5:48 pm

    I’d love to try dehydrated blueberries!

  40. Amber L on April 7, 2011 at 6:00 pm

    I have actually been wanting a dehydrated forever now!! The first thing I would make would be kale chips. Ever since I saw this recipe I knew it would be something I would love. I tried making them in the oven, but it was a complete fail! 🙁

  41. Cassie on April 7, 2011 at 6:16 pm

    Granola…then probably dried fruit and roons!

  42. Ann @ Running With Chopstix on April 7, 2011 at 6:19 pm

    What a great giveaway! I would make cheezy kale chips!!

  43. Ashley K on April 7, 2011 at 7:06 pm

    Eeep! I’ve wanted a dehydrator forever!! I’d probably make some roons first, mmm!! 🙂

  44. Kathleen on April 7, 2011 at 7:07 pm

    Definitely macaroons-I made some in my oven with the lowest setting, open oven method and they are honestly the best thing I have ever tasted!!!!!

  45. Meghan on April 7, 2011 at 7:15 pm

    Definitely kale chips!

  46. Katie- Microwavin Maven on April 7, 2011 at 7:49 pm

    Dehydrated fruit! Come to me!

  47. Caiti on April 7, 2011 at 7:49 pm

    Oooh, such a good giveaway! I’d make roons first, followed by raw crackers. And then granola.

  48. Ali on April 7, 2011 at 7:59 pm

    Def the macaroons!

  49. Brittney on April 7, 2011 at 8:06 pm

    I’d totally attempt to make macaroons if I had a dehydrator.

  50. Sara on April 7, 2011 at 8:37 pm
