Reader Appreciation Week

November 30, 2009

Hey guys…or maybe I should say Hey girls…and the 5 guys that read my blog. πŸ˜‰

I wanted to thank everyone for all their HEAB birthday wishes. Honestly, I can’t believe it’s been a year. Boredom at work led me to logging into WordPress one day last November, and HEAB was born. I remember telling CD that I would probably run out of things to say after a week or so…guess not. πŸ™‚

Anyway, I’ve put together a week of giveaways to let you all know how much I truly appreciate your support. Shall we get started? Today’s giveaway is an EatSmart Kitchen Scale.


When the EatSmart folks contacted me about reviewing their Precision Pro Digital Scale, I hesitated a bit at first. I already owned a kitchen scale, and I really try not get caught up in weighing or measuring all my food. However, I then reconsidered when I thought about how useful a kitchen scale can be, and when the company agreed to send a scale to one lucky HEABer, I was even more excited to try one out for myself.

I won’t lie. I’m always curious to know how much my kabocha squash weighs.


This squash was smaller than most. Has anyone else noticed that kabochas are shrinking?

I also always measure out my protein powder for Protein Pancakes. 30 grams is perfect, and the scoop itself is not always reliable.


Scales are great if you’re trying to lose weight. I think so many people have no idea how big their portion sizes truly are, and a scale can really help keep them in check. However, you know what the best use of a kitchen scale is??????


When you’re in need of a batch of Katie’s Brownie Batter Pancakes! This recipe alone is worth owning a kitchen scale since Katie lists all ingredients in grams. By the way, it’s your last day to help raise money for Operation Chocolate Covered Kindness. Don’t forget to click away over at Chocolate Covered Katie.

So, what did I like about the EatSmart Precision Digital Scale?

1) It’s super sensitive – more so than the scale I already owned.

2) It’s simple to operate, and I love the large digital number display.

3) I like that it will display the weight in total ounces rather than pounds.

4) It’s very compact and easy to keep clean. (Rice protein powder is messy!)

In fact, the only thing I didn’t like about was that sometimes it was difficult to see the display if I placed a large plate on the scale. Other than that, it was great. Thanks again EatSmart! To win a scale of your own, all you need to do is leave a comment below telling Chocolate Covered Katie recipe you can’t wait to try.

A few announcements before I go…

Yesterday, I met up with the cute Whitney of Whit’s Getting Fit. She and her sisters, Meredith and Linden, were in town, and I had the best time with these girls. Amanda also met up with us for coffee at Fido’s. Girls, I felt like we were old friends. So glad I got hang out with all of you before your trip home to North Carolina!


National Pomegranate Month is coming to an end. Be sure to stock up on this delicious fruit while it is still available. Then you can make this amazing sounding recipe submitted to the POM Wonderful Pomegranate Recipe Contest by Gaby. Or, perhaps you can create your own recipe to enter in the contest.

Jay Robb, creator of my favorite rice protein powder, is getting ready to launch his JayClub Platinum Program tomorrow, Dec. 1. Go check it out!

I’ll announce the winner of the EatSmart Scale tomorrow. Be sure to check back everyday this week as there are many more exciting giveaways to come!

    You are so cute, measuring your kabochas! And I think you’re right that they’re shrinking: the other day I saw one the size of an apple! Seriously! (I took a picture; it’s so cute.)

    Thank you, Heather, for everything this month. You have been a lifesaver in helping to raise the money. I know I sound like a broken record, but I just have to thank you one more time!!

    And lol, I already make CCK recipes every day, so I am going to say that the recipe I most want to make is YOUR maple oaties again (because I have a craving).

    Tons and tons of love,

    Katie is such a sweetie, I’m sure she truly appreciates all the clicks you’ve been sending her way. Heck if it weren’t for you I wouldn’t have discovered fudge babies (kids love them rolled in coconut) and we LOVE this little gem…take a slice of cinnamon bread, lovingly cover it with some nut butter or pb, then top with “melted banana butter” and raisins or chocolate chips or BOTH!!! YUMMY! Love both of your inspirations!!! Now I need to work on moderation! hehehehe! πŸ˜‰

    Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving surrounded by loved ones!

    Fantastic giveaway!!

    I was actually clicking around the recipes on Katie’s page earlier this morning and I really want to try “My Cousin Vinegar’s Stir Fry Salad.” After spending a long weekend at my parent’s house (where green vegetables are hard to come by) I think it’s necessary. Although.. the chocolate brownie batter pancakes look pretty necessary too =).

  31. November 30, 2009 10:11 am

    I would love to win this scale! Mine has been on the fritz and is causing me some mayjah headaches. I actually use my scale more in weight maintenance than I did in weight loss. My #1 problem is with controlling my serving sizes, so a lot of things pass the surface of the scale before going on the plate just to make sure I’m not overdoing it. I’m definitely one of those people who will dump 2 cups of granola into a bowl and think “that’s about half a cup” πŸ˜›

    I am new to your area Heather and I’m so happy I found your blog. The recipe I most want to try is Katie’s homemade Lara bars. I think they would make an excellent addition to a healthy gift basket for the holidays and I’m borderline obsessed with PB cookie Lara bars.
    Hope we can meet up for coffee if I win the scale, you won’t have to ship it! πŸ™‚

  33. November 30, 2009 10:21 am

    A giveaway week? How fun! I have one of these scales and it totally rocks. I use it for all of my baking. Another fun meet up for you. Two in one weekend- what a treat. Happy Birthday to HEAB once again πŸ™‚

    I did notice that the kabochas are shrinking! Do you think it is just the time of year? The smaller ones are usually darker green- and not as sweet..
    Maybe they were having trouble selling the larger ones for $5+ a piece!

    I’ll pass on the scales, people might think i’m dealing in something other than protein powder ;-p
    However i did send you that pic of me in the corvette at the auto show this weekend, so for tommorrow’s givaway.. hint*hint*

    i cant wait to try more of CCK recipies! i’d love to own that scale! i have one but it’s not digital so it’s hard to tell exactly how much the goods weigh. it’s plastic but pretty cute πŸ™‚ it came with a bowl to weigh your food in and i put it on the stove one night (forgetting that i used to stove just a few minutes before) and i killed it 😦

    Hi Heather – I have been reading your blog for a few months now. I am always inspired by your desire for balance between life and fitness. I have been working very hard for the last two months now to regain that balance. I let life get the best of me for a few years and now I have a long way to go to get back to being healthy and loving the body “package” God gave me. I have been introduced to weighing my portions with a scale and it is so eye opening! I totally thought I ate a lot less than I actually do. The scale I use however is pretty old and not always reliable, a new one would be awesome.

    My favorite recipe of Katie’s is, Mushroom Stroganoff ( I am totally a meat girl, but this is so yummy I do not even miss it! I am planning to try it with your spiral zucchini next time I make it.

    Thank you for sharing pieces of yourself with all of us, you are an inspiration to me!

    I’d totally love a food scale; I don’t have one, and I’m always running into a situation where I need one:(

    Happy b-day to HEAB…I’ve been reading for about six months, and I can definitely say that your blog has been the most inspiring and helpful one that I read every day. And not just because you’ve lost 100 pounds (although that’s an incredible feat)…it’s the common-sense approach to food/eating/exercise and how it should fit into life. Rather than leaving the blog feeling inadequate because I can’t do a five mile run, I leave feeling encouraged. That’s a big deal. thanks:)

    Heabers- are you serious? That kabocha was 27 pounds? Who need a gym? Just grab one of those babies and do Kabocha Dead Man Walking with it:

    *Step forward into the first step of a walking lunge, holding kabocha in front of you
    *Swing kabocha out to one side, step back foot to meet front foot.
    *Repeat with other foot and swing squash out to other side
    *Repeat until you know it’ll be impossible to walk properly the next day πŸ™‚

    Haha this is so timely! I’ve been recipe stalking (and madly clicking) over at Katie’s site for about a week, and about 20 minutes ago I made my first fudge babies ever. And about 30 seconds ago I ATE my first fudge baby ever! And honestly, it is one of the most delicious treats I have ever had. Anywhere. Ever. Maybe it is not quite as exciting as real motherhood, but I am pretty sure these babies have changed my life!

  82. November 30, 2009 12:14 pm

    At first when I saw this give away, like you, I wasn’t at first interested. I’ve ditched the kitchen scales in the house when I threw out dieting…the result…losing weight eating incredible food! HOWEVER, you make a very solid point in that I’ve been making Katie’s food lately (LOVE the raw chocolate balls which I actually turned into a pie crust for a raw chocolate berry pie I made for Thanksgiving…it was a HIT!) but have been having to “guess” as to the exact amount since she does put everything in grams and I don’t have a scale!

    So…since I plan on making many more of Katie’s creations, including the homemade larabars, pancakes, mounds balls, etc… I most definitely NEED this scale. πŸ™‚

    Thanks Heather!


    PS…I have a question on my blog about juicing detox. Have you done one? If so, I’d really love some advise.

  83. November 30, 2009 12:15 pm

    Awesome giveaway! Fudge babies? YES YES!!

    Kabocha mousse! So what if it looks like baby food??

  85. November 30, 2009 12:22 pm

    Scales really are great for cooking and baking. I like how you can just keep resetting the scale instead of getting a million measuring cups dirty!

    I would love a scale to help me familiarize myself with portion sizes. I feel like meats especially are so hard to tell since sometimes a chicken breast is cut really thin and other times not so much!

  87. November 30, 2009 12:26 pm

    scales are perfect for baking! they’re so much more accurate than volume measures. katie’s bugs bunny carrot cake sounds fantastic.

  88. November 30, 2009 12:27 pm

    What a fun meetup! I’m always jealous of the bloggy meet-ups going on- they look like so much fun! I’m going to have to make a detour to Nashville someday to meet the lovely HEAB!

    Kabocha love! I actually prefer the squash when they aren’t too big, but rather just about fit in the palm of my hand. But then again I prefer all my produce on the smaller side. When it’s big all I can think about is it being pumped with steroids and well, that freaks me out!

    Good luck to all those entering the giveaway and Happy Belated Blog Birthday!

    I don’t measure my food though…I’d be too afraid to know just how much I have haha – it’s ridiculous πŸ™‚ And no Kobucha squash around here…I actually haven’t had squash in a while…been rocking the Sweet Potatoe Fries though and whole-grain pasta – mmm!

    protein powder is always a hassle to measure because the scoops are always off! Katies 24 carrot cake cupcakes always sound sooooooooo good when she makes them. I just love veggies in my baked goods!

    Cookie Dough Babies! Ahh everything Katie makes is such a tease without a food scale in my dorm!!

    Eatmovelove, Buttercup is very similar to kabocha. In fact, my local Asian Mkt. just throws them all in the same endcap display in the produce section. You should buy one. πŸ™‚

    I am totally entering this contest and asking the Universe to grant me this one!
    The stars are aligning, because I just added a food scale to my Christmas wishlist.
    I’m sick of not being able to weigh my squashes and various cold-weather root veggies (thank you for tuning me into Kabocha squash). I definitely need a scale.
    I’m new to Katie’s Chocolate blog, but I will throw my hat in the ring for the Brownie Batter pancakes. I think I can handle that one.

  218. November 30, 2009 10:25 pm

    I can’t wait to try the cookie dough babies!!

  219. November 30, 2009 10:29 pm

    Ohh, I could totally use a scale because I am a total anglophile and would love to make recipes off UK sites but I have no idea the amounts!

    I’ve been jonesing to make CCK’s cheesecake mousse. πŸ™‚

    i adored katies tofu pumpkin pudding. looking for more ways to use tofu, so i liked the idea of the international breakfast scramble, and the lazy girl quiche (meaty mushroom quiche).

    thanks heab!

    oooh, i think this is the same scale Kath tested a little while back, you two have got me SOLD! i weigh everything on this rinky-dink salter scale that is a giant balancing disaster, and probably not very reliable, now that i think about it. plus, this one is RED?!?! sexxy hot perfectly portioned protein pancakes!?!? now c’mon…!

    I’d love the scale! Why? I’m in New Zealand. Come on you know you want to post this far, pleeease!

    Plus, I saw someone walking in the street today in an actual replica hobbit cloak…I may be scarred for life!

    Scales are sooo helpful in keeping consistency with recipes and “concoctions” that work well. Nothing is better than knowing how GOOD something is going to taste when you can recreate it time and time again. I would love to win:)

  229. December 1, 2009 7:12 am

    Ha ha Lisa…that’s what I’m talkin about!

  230. December 1, 2009 7:56 am

    I was very happy that you dropped by my blog before. Thanks so much, please continue to do so sometimes πŸ™‚
    I won’t put a bid in for the scale cause I don’t really need it and there seem to be some people here that would love to have it.
    But I would likely make any of Katies pancakes or oatmeal dishes. Carb-loving πŸ™‚

  231. December 1, 2009 8:09 am

    I would love to use this scale for baking purposes!! πŸ™‚

  234. December 1, 2009 9:43 am

    Dang, sucks I missed the brunch 😦 :(. That scale looks great. I want it!!! ahaha. I miss pp. I wonder what I could sub for the oats or the pp to make pancakes???? I’ll have to think about that one. Love you and happy belated blog bday!!!


  235. December 1, 2009 11:47 am

    yes, kabochas are definitely shrinking! I thought it was only the shipments to my store! haha. Great giveaway! One Katie recipe I’d love to try is brownie batter pancakes…they sound so good!

  236. December 1, 2009 1:46 pm

    Justine, You could make Katie’s Brownie Batter pancakes using buckwheat flour and maybe the chocolate Amazing Meal won’t bother your belly. Or you could just skip the Amazing Meal and add extra cocoa or carob powder. Don’t forget to call Lululemon about the Kettlebell class: (615) 298-9975β€Ž. [?]

  237. December 1, 2009 4:21 pm

    I could so use this kitchen scale! And come on I just have to pick one of katies recipes?! Thats crazy talk πŸ™‚ But I suppose if I had to pick one it would be her chocolate chip cookie babies… the pictures are making me drool!

    How about chocolate covered kabocha? Or maybe just the smore muffins–sound delicious!!

  239. December 2, 2009 1:28 am

    I’m going to make her Easy Eggplant Dip…one day. And some of her babies too!

    And I seek out the smallest Kobachas. That way I don’t feel so bad about eating the entire thing!
