Plant Based on a Budget Anniversary Giveaways

By : | 48 Comments | On : April 2, 2014 | Category : Blog, Giveaways

As a “thank you” for your support over the last two years, we have some wonderful things to give away from our sponsors and friends. Please make sure to check them out and show them lots of support.

To enter the giveaway, click on the individual images. We will be adding new giveaways to the blog post throughout the month, so please stay posted.


A Place at the Table (my personal favorite documentary) – Fifty million people in the U.S.—one in four children—don’t know where their next meal is coming from. Directors Kristi Jacobson and Lori Silverbush examine the issue of hunger in America through the lens of three people struggling with food insecurity: Barbie, a single Philadelphia mother who grew up in poverty and is trying to provide a better life for her two kids; Rosie, a Colorado fifth-grader who often has to depend on friends and neighbors to feed her and has trouble concentrating in school; and Tremonica, a Mississippi second-grader whose asthma and health issues are exacerbated by the largely empty calories her hardworking mother can afford.

Ultimately, A Place at the Table shows us how hunger poses serious economic, social and cultural implications for our nation, and that it could be solved once and for all, if the American public decides — as they have in the past — that making healthy food available and affordable is in the best interest of us all. Enter to win a copy of A Place at the Table!



Rescue Chocolate – is “the sweetest way to save a life!” From each chocolate purchased, 100% of the net profits are donated to animal rescue organizations around the country. To see current and past beneficiaries just click on the Who We Help. We were founded in January 2010 and we are headquartered in Brooklyn, NY. Also, Rescue Chocolate is all vegan, organic, fair trade, kosher and uses eco-friendly packaging. Enter to win a $50 gift certificate.

In turn, the products and ingredients that we use in Upton’s Breakroom are also held to a high standard.

Afro Vegan: A groundbreaking cookbook from beloved chef-activist Bryant Terry, drawing from African, Caribbean, and Southern food to create over 100 enticing vegan dishes.” Enter to win Afro Vegan!


VEGAN CUTS: The Vegan Cuts team knows that plant-based eating is the best, most fulfilling diet choice but they see a commitment to eating vegan as just a start so they spend their days scouring the interwebs, festivals, and stores for the very best vegan clothing, shoes, accessories, body care products and everyday items. They’re not selfish people, though, so they share their finds with you in the Vegan Cuts online marketplace or by sending them directly to your door via the monthly subscriptionSnack Box and Beauty Box. Enter to win!


VEGUCATEDPart sociological experiment and part adventure comedy, Vegucated follows three meat- and cheese-loving New Yorkers who agree to adopt a vegan diet for six weeks. Lured by tales of weight lost and health regained, they begin to uncover the hidden sides of animal agriculture that make them wonder whether solutions offered in films like Food, Inc. go far enough. This entertaining documentary showcases the rapid and at times comedic evolution of three people who discover they can change the world one bite at a time. Enter now.


CHICAGO VEGAN FOODS: The company was started over a decade ago by teenage friends Ryan Howard and Dan Ziegler with the goal of merging their love for animals and activism into a business that could help bring awareness to veganism. What better way to build awareness than through great tasting food? Over the years as the business has grown, so has our staff and our product line. When Dan and Ryan started the business they were making soymilk, which went on to become the basis for our delicious Temptation Ice Cream line. They found that as the weather got cooler so did ice cream sales so they asked “what’s missing?” They went back to the drawing board and created Teese Vegan Cheese. From there it became our mission to look for and fill another void in the vegan market. Enter the birth of Dandies Vegan Marshmallows. As we continue to grow our business we promise to always put you and the animals first. It is our strong belief that through fun, passion and food that we can help make great vegan foods that are better for the animals, better for you! Enter to win!


VEGAN HEALTH AND FITNESS MAGAZINE: A magazine for those interested in vegan health and fitness. 😉 Enter to win a one year subscription.


The Sexy Vegan’s Happy Hour at Home: Small Plates, Big Flavors & Potent Cocktails – What started as a casual weekly tradition at the Patton household resulted in these twenty delectably diverse happy hour menus. From yamburger sliders, samosa pizzas, and green bean fries to rigatoni poppers and a variety of innovative cocktails, this is seriously fun food for Friday — or any — night! Wow your friends! Impress your family! Woo that special someone who might need a little convincing of your specialness!  Enter to win a copy of The Sexy Vegan’s Happy Hour at Home!


Food Inc. – In Food, Inc., filmmaker Robert Kenner lifts the veil on our nation’s food industry, exposing the highly mechanized underbelly that has been hidden from the American consumer with the consent of our government’s regulatory agencies, USDA and FDA. Our nation’s food supply is now controlled by a handful of corporations that often put profit ahead of consumer health, the livelihood of the American farmer, the safety of workers and our own environment. We have bigger-breasted chickens, the perfect pork chop, herbicide-resistant soybean seeds, even tomatoes that won’t go bad, but we also have new strains of E. coli—the harmful bacteria that causes illness for an estimated 73,000 Americans annually. We are riddled with widespread obesity, particularly among children, and an epidemic level of diabetes among adults. Enter to win a copy of Food Inc!
