iHerb Shopping Spree Giveaway

When Abby from iHerb asked me if I’d like to go on a $50 shopping spree and then offer an additional shopping spree to one of my readers, I decided to turn her down.

Just kidding :)

Of course I said “YES”… iHerb carries over 19,000 products! They’ve got herbal supplements, cosmetics and personal care items that are organic and/or cruelty-free, as well as over 1,000 natural and specialty grocery items (many of which are vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, and organic). I couldn’t wait to browse their online catalog.

Once I saw the enormity of their stock, it didn’t take long for me to decide what to purchase. I’d been itching to try Shauna’s gluten free version of David Leite’s famous chocolate chip cookies, but was having trouble finding all the special gluten-free ingredients locally. I had no problem finding them at iHerb, though- they carry just about everything for the health-conscious cook.

So I ordered sorghum flour, tapioca starch, potato starch, amaranth flour, and xanthan gum specifically so I could make these cookies. I also ordered some teff flour, plus a jar of my favorite coconut oil.

The prices were excellent and shipping was free (it’s always free if you order more than $40 worth of goods). Everything came super fast (they ship your items out on the same day if you place your order before 1 pm PST). I am really impressed by this company.

And the cookies?

Shauna's GF Choc Chip Cookies

They’re amazing…especially right out of the oven.

I’ll definitely make them again, and now that I’ve added these ingredients to my pantry, I’ll be able to branch out a lot more in the gluten-free baking department: I’m pretty excited about that.

Now what about you? What would you order with a $50 shopping spree to iHerb? One of you is going to win and I’d love to hear what you’ll buy if you do.

  1. Thanks! I registered. Don’t know what I’d get, but it would probably include some essential oils for my massage practice and some vitamins.

  2. Registered! I would definitely get some lentils and whole wheat flour to start. I bake all the time, so I’d like to try some healthy products that I can incorporate into my baked goods.

  3. I have never heard of coconut vinegar so, I’m sure that would be on my list. I would also get tamanu oil for my skin, organic nettle leaf & licorice root tinctures(a staple in my house), gluten free flours such as coconut flour, almond flour, etc, Alvita herbal teas (milk thistle, etc). I’m sure that I would go over the $50 shopping spree on this one.

    I’ve already registered at iherb.com

  4. Those cookies look amazing. What would I buy with $50 worth? Hmmm…let’s see. Probably whole grain flours, whole grain chips, and items that are hard to find around here. I love to bake and have been baking more whole grain snacks so I would most likely buy some dried fruit for my granola and some Stevia to sweeten it all.

  5. i would buy my staples: chia seeds, hemp protien, and some of bob’s red mill products ( i love red mill stuff!). and i just started following you on twitter! :)

  6. I love RED MILL! I love steel cut oats, and cornbread! Honey, supplements, natural ingredients! I would have a hard time deciding! I am a liker on fb too!

  7. I hadn’t heard of iherb before. Thanks for the tip!

    I registered at the site and looked around a bit. If I were to win, I’d order some honey, stevia, products from Bob’s Red Mill, and vitamin d3!

  8. I signed up for an account at iHerb. I looked around a bit and I’m excited about this discovery, thank you very much. I would get more coconut oil. I have switched over to using that oil almost exclusively, on the recommendation of my friend who struggled with candida for years and is finally healthy. I could spend hours there, roaming their site. thanks so much for sharing.

  9. my friends daughter is 12 and just found out she is insulin resistant. I am helping them develop recipes that she can eat and digest. So challenging! I, too, have purchased many new ingredients and so far, buckwheat flour is the best resource for her. I am looking forward to reading your blog! thanks.

  11. I would probably try some of the gluten free flours you chose especially the teff flour as I have been wanting to try to make injera (an Ethiopian flat bread made from teff flour). I would also like to try spirulina, acai and goji berries – I always here how wonderful they are for you, but have yet to try any of them!

  12. I would love to try the hard to find staples for gluten free baking since I can’t find much of anything in my small town! Great giveaway! Liked on FB & registered on iHerb!

  13. Cool! I would stock up on my staples: raw honey & vinegar, teas for kombucha and my oils. Can’t have too many staples on hand!! I never know from day to day if I have a hankerin’ to get something started! :)
