A Plant-Based Giveaway

Most bloggers these days do giveaways. It's probably the most prevalent meme of blogging today, at least among the blogs I read. I like the idea of giveaways, but I don't have much traffic, and I'm not interested in going out of my way to attract sponsors. One day recently I realized, duh, I can give stuff away too, I just have to buy it with my own money. This means I have total control over what I give away. Total control is good.

And, since I only average like four page views a day, it also means you have a good chance of winning whatever I give away. Hey, that rhymed!

As you probably know (because I wrote about it 47 times), I recently read The China Study by T. Colin Campbell. It was good. You can read some of my thoughts about it here. I'm giving away a copy because I want more people to learn about the science behind plant-based diets, and how good they are at disease-proofing you.

This book is awesome, but it's not fluffy. It's jam packed with great information, and the science is explained clearly, even for the biologically averse like me. After reading it, you'll feel like you have an honorary PhD in nutrition.

If you're interested in either a Kindle or paperback copy of this book, let me know in the comments. Tell me what format you'd like (Kindle or paperback), as well as what you're interested in learning from the book. If you want to tweet about the giveaway, leave me another comment with a copy of your tweet, and that'll be a second entry for you. Got it?

I'll pick a random winner on Thursday at 8pm EDT. This is open to anyone in the U.S.


  1. I would like to read it on my Kindle. I saw where Caroline mentioned that book on her blog and have been interested in reading it since then. I always like to learn more about foods and different ways of eating.

  2. I have been a vegetarian since 2004, a vegan since 2010, and though I've heard of the China Study I have never read it so getting it on my kindle would be a great opportunity to get around to it!

  3. Tweeted about the giveaway:
    ".@runportiarun is giving away a copy of The China Study, comment on her post to enter! … #plantbased"

  4. What a treat! I read parts of this book a few years ago when I gave up eating meat. I would love to read it again. I think I would go with the paperback version as it feels easier to flip back and forth with.

  5. I was a vegetarian for 16 years but gave it up once I had kids. One of my kids is a vegetarian anyway; one sometimes is and the other has some limiting digestive issues (as do some of his cousins). We have had some luck with alternative diets. I am just curious to hear more. (paper)
