November is Diabetes Awareness Month…

ada-logo…And in order to help raise awareness about this disease that currently afflicts more than 29 million people in the U.S., MagicKitchen.com is awarding a $250 gift certificate to one lucky entrant.  All that’s required of you is to go to this site: http://www.magickitchen.com/diabetes-awareness.html and simply enter your name and email address.  The contest opens on November 1 and the winner will be announced on December 3.

Lemon Rosemary PorkSince the whole idea of our contest and designating November as Diabetes Awareness Month is to…well…raise awareness among people about diabetes, here’s a few facts regarding the disease as cited by the Center for Disease Control:

  • Of the 29.1 million people who have diabetes, 8.1 million of them (or 27.8%) are undiagnosed.
  • At least 1 in 3 people will develop type II diabetes in their lifetime.
  • The risk of death for adults with diabetes is 58% higher than for adults without the disease and their medical costs are twice as high.
  • Those who have diabetes are at greater risk for blindness, kidney failure, heart disease and stroke.

ground-turkey-noodles-IMG_3995-(2)In addition to the 29 million who have diabetes, 86 million have pre-diabetes (those whose blood sugar is higher than normal, but not high enough to be classified as type II diabetes) and 90% of them are unaware of this fact.  Hence the need for Diabetes Awareness Month…to make them aware of the disease and to convince them to see their doctor for a blood glucose screening.  Because for many of them, there’s still time to stave off full-blown diabetes by simply eating healthy, losing weight and leading a more active lifestyle.

Since there are often no signs or symptoms of pre-diabetes, you should get a blood glucose screening if you have any of the following risk factors:

    • Overweight with a body mass index (BMI) over 25.
    • Are inactive
    • Age 45 or older
    • Have a family history of type II diabetes
    • Have high blood pressure
    • Your HDL is below 35
    • You are African-American, Hispanic, Native American, Asian-American or Pacific Islander.
    • Have polycystic ovary syndrome

Portion Control mealsSo what can you do if you’re diagnosed with prediabetes?  Well, the treatment is simple and totally within your hands.  The CDC states that you can lower your risk for type II diabetes by 58% if you lose 7% of your body weight (or 15 pounds for someone who weights 200 pounds) and perform some moderate exercise (like brisk walking) for 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week.

The lessons to be learned here?  You can win a $250 gift certificate from MagicKitchen.com simply by registering and if you or someone you know is at risk for pre-diabetes, get them, or you, in for a blood glucose screening and then start eating healthier, lose some weight and become more active…the ball is in your court.

How About a $500 Gift Certificate?…Yeah, That’s What We Thought!

Won MagicKitchen.com SweepstakesWho wouldn’t want a $500 gift certificate from MagicKitchen.com just in time for the holidays? We suppose someone who doesn’t enjoy delicious food made from the freshest ingredients possible and then having it delivered directly to their door, but does such a person exist? We think not. But we’re getting ahead of ourselves…

Beginning today, November 9th, you can register to win either a $500 (first prize) or a $200 (second prize) gift certificate from MagicKitchen.com. All that’s required is that you fill out the simple form (email and name) found here: http://www.magickitchen.com/land/sweepstakes-2015.html and wait until December 14th when the winners will be announced. Yes, it’s that simple…no previous purchase required, no long, tedious form to complete. All we need from you is an email address, your name, and a little patience.

product-collage3Imagine not having to run around like a crazy person the day before your holiday gathering or party trying to prepare the appetizers, entrée and/or dessert for said gathering. And, best of all, not having to pay for all that food, which is the exact scenario you would encounter so long as you register for and win either one of our two gift certificates. Just think of what you could do with the time and money you would save should you win…such as binge watching The Walking Dead (no, not a Rolling Stones’ concert), or purchasing a drone and spying on the neighbors, or getting a mani/pedi…the possibilities are endless. Now, whether or not you reveal to your family and friends where all the delectable dishes came from we leave entirely up to you!

So what are you waiting for? Take a minute, visit the link above, provide the required info and then just wait until 12/14 to hear if you’ve won. Oh yeah, and good luck to you all!

MagicKitchen.com’s Awesome, Stupendous Diabetic-Friendly Meal Giveaway!

diab-wareSince November is National Diabetes Awareness Month, and since diabetics can control their disease by eating the proper diet, and since MagicKitchen.com is sympathetic to their needs and already produces delicious diabetic-friendly meals, it’s only logical that we sponsor a contest and award the winner with 30 of those delectable diabetic-friendly meals at no cost!

All that’s required of you is to visit our Diabetes Awareness Contest entry page anytime from now through to the end of November 2015 and simply follow the instructions you find there. The winner will then be announced on December 10th and shortly thereafter, he or she will begin to dine on a month’s worth of free, diabetic-friendly meals that are delivered right to their door…easy peasy, lemon squeezy (where did that saying originate anyway?).

And the thing is that you do not necessarily need to be a diabetic to enter this contest. Since over 29 million Americans suffer with this disease, chances are you know a diabetic friend or family member…I guess they could be both friend and family member…for some reason many separate friends from family members, especially during the holidays. Why is that? Anyway, if you happen to win and you’re not diabetic, 30 diabetic-friendly meals would make a great gift for any diabetic in your life. eat-mor-chickn

Whoever wins this contest will not have to worry about preparing dinner for a month as they will have a wide selection of meals to choose from. He or she can get their Italian on with veal parmesan, or eat (rather than swim) with the fishes with our baked tilapia. Or you can “eAt morE ChiKen”, as the cows in that famous commercial say, with our zesty orange chicken tenders.

So please, help make people more aware of this epidemic known as diabetes during November and every month for that matter, and we’ll continue to provide diabetics, and others, with quality, nutritious, and delicious meals delivered right to their homes. Thank you for your support, and tell all your friends!!
