in giveaway

hey guys!  FRIDAY! i have a lot going on today and tonight since i have my big christmas party tomorrow. i also have to get some last minute shopping done.. chances are, you might to. i want to give you one last gift idea!

it is my pleasure to spotlight a special company—if you are working on any last minute gifts, now is your chance to get your hands on some quality homemade goods.

this gift spotlight is very unique because it actually is the company of a fellow blogger—that is not something you see every day!

i am good blog friends with nicole culver of making good choices. her blog offers up lots of healthy recipes and she even specializes in health coaching. i first started reading her blog when she was involved in the great fundraising act.


nicole has a bakery business called pure bliss eats. i am pretty envious because i have always wanted a business of my own—i would like a restaurant or a coffee shop!


a few fun facts about the company:

  • all their is considered “clean” eating. there is no “junk” in their foods like HFCS or funny things you can’t pronounce!
  • the chocolate they use is very high quality chocolate and is gluten, soy, dairy & nut free!
  • their muffins are in the shape of muffin tops & mini loaves!
  • their granola & chocolate balls do not contain any gluten!
  • each item is handcrafted with lots of love! :)

a little bit about pure bliss eats, as told by nicole:

Pure Bliss Eats started all with my love for being in the kitchen. My muffins & granola started long before I was an actual company and started really because of my husband. Before I had any idea that I would own a healthy online bakery, I had a personal challenge of getting my husband to eat breakfast. He wouldn’t eat until lunch time because he wasn’t “hungry” in the morning. At the time he also was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and kept losing weight (even though most people typically gain weight with hypothyroidism.) I wanted to come up with a healthy way for him to actually want to eat breakfast.  I started with healthier muffins and granolas that my husband and I would  eat and then I’d bring leftovers into work to share with my colleagues (I was a elementary school teacher!). I started to realize that I had a really good thing going. That’s just the beginning of the story, but you can read more about it on our site or on my blog. Our story really is still at the start right now and I have big dreams!

that is such an inspiring start-up story! big props to nicole for helping out her husband AND living out her dreams.

a bit about the products available at pure bliss eats, again.. as told by nicole:

Pure Bliss Eats sells healthy granolas, muffins, granola bars & chocolate balls. All our ingredients are hand picked and we use only the best out there! All our products are whole grain, no white flour, white sugar, eggs, butter or milk. Our muffins are made with spelt flour, which has a higher protein content and is easier to digest then whole wheat flour. Our granola is sweetened with only natural sweeteners like honey. We use a variety of organic ingredients, like organic spelt flour, organic puffed millet and gluten free oats. Our products are guaranteed to make you feel great while tasting delicious!   Clean, healthy & delicious!

if you have a special diet, you will be interested to know that pure bliss eats’ muffins and chocolate balls are vegan. their granola & granola bars are not considered vegan because they use honey in them, but they have no other animal products. while their granola & chocolate balls are free of gluten containing ingredients, they do use a facility that uses gluten and there may be cross contamination.

you can purchase pure bliss eats products on their website.

I want to open up a health spa that includes holistic therapies.

Dani December 17, 2011 at 8:10 pm

i want to open up a bakery/deli type place with my sister where we make really healthy stuff as well as really sinful, fully-leaded treats…all of which would be delicious! so people could have a bit of both. it’d be called “naughty and nice” or something like that!!

Leah December 17, 2011 at 8:23 pm

If I had a business, it would specialize in healthy foods :)

Alina December 17, 2011 at 8:25 pm

I would open a frozen yogurt and a coffee shop and call it “hot and cold with anythin’ on top”

Bria December 17, 2011 at 8:40 pm

I think it’d be fun to have a juice bar, but not a typical one. One with more like a coffeeshop vibe :-)

Leah December 17, 2011 at 8:52 pm

Different Leah…I would have a vegan cafe stocked with the awesome food my husband and I make for dinner. I’m pretty sure we would call it Chez L-Dubs, since our two last names start with an “L” and a “W” and that’s what our friends call us–“The L-Dubs.” Looks kinda heinous when you write it out that way, but we like it!

Sara December 17, 2011 at 8:59 pm

If I could open a business it would revolve around all things chocolate. I would sell different treats that could be dipped in different types of chocolate and customized with different toppings.

Eleah December 17, 2011 at 11:20 pm

i want to study medicine.. so a business wouldn’t be until i finish my studies and it would be some type of clinic.

Lisa Boice December 17, 2011 at 11:43 pm

Id start a “healthy people” business! Maybe be a holistic health coach

esmemerrie December 17, 2011 at 11:45 pm

my business would specialize in showing people new sights in their own area! I think we get stuck in ruts when we live in one place and forget to explore it!

Melissa Lillie December 18, 2011 at 10:53 am

hmmm- I would love to have a pilates studio or a tea shop!

Hanna December 18, 2011 at 2:00 pm

Nutrition counseling for athletes.

Kayley Ray December 18, 2011 at 9:13 pm

I’ve always imagined myself owning a coffee shop/quaint cafe w/ a limited, changing daily/seasonally menu….perhaps calling it Ray’s Place.

Monica December 18, 2011 at 10:44 pm

I love food businesses because they’re all so different. I’d definitely open up an online bakery shop which would sell cupcakes, macaroons, all sorts of treats, and then hopefully one day open up a real store. No clue on the name yet… one day it will come to me.

Andrea M December 19, 2011 at 2:47 am

If i were to start my own business I would want to specialize in fresh baked yeasted breads and/or a personal chef & trainer…I want people to be encouraged to move their bodies and that there are so many substitutions they don’t have to hate their life in the fight to become healthy.

Hope @ With A Side Of Hope December 19, 2011 at 5:43 am

I would love to start my own wedding planning business. I think it would be so rewarding to help couples plan the most special day of their lives. :)

jen December 19, 2011 at 6:58 am

2-part business: bakery in the front (i got a mean sweet tooth) and a gym in the back (im a group ex instructor and cert. PT). do the two things i love– indulge my customers then guilt them into working out, haha

Kerryne December 19, 2011 at 7:16 am

I would love to have a bakery, or bread store. Not because I am a great baker but because I LOVE me some baked goods :)

Jillian D. December 19, 2011 at 7:17 am

I would open up a bakery/coffee shop and call it Dessert Island. I even made up the whole business plan in my high school Entrepreneurship class!!

Lee December 19, 2011 at 7:47 am

Jason and I always talk about starting a company called College Coasters. We’d go around the country taking pictures of iconic things at college campuses and put the images on coasters.

Michelle December 19, 2011 at 7:49 am

My business would specialize in cookies! I love baking and I’m always creating new recipes. It’s so much fun!

Calee December 19, 2011 at 7:53 am

I already have a business … two really: chimesdesign (freelance graphic design and crafts) and weddingchimes (wedding invites).

But if i could do ANYTHING I would love to have a fitness/personal trainer business. I’m known pretty well locally as “chimes” so I’d have to name it with “chimes” … maybe fitchimes?

Sarah December 19, 2011 at 9:16 am

I think it would be really fun to have a small clothing and/or jewelry boutique. I would love to be to be in charge of ordering the new fashions every season!

Shaunna Ulrick December 19, 2011 at 10:35 am

bakery for sure :)

Cheryl December 19, 2011 at 11:24 am

I think my business would specialize in “bad” food that make you feel oh so good!!

Katy A December 19, 2011 at 11:38 am

i actually have 2 business’ in mind. One would be a bagel shop (I moved to ID two years ago and can’t find a bagel shop close by). the other is a dream, I always wanted to open a hair salon/dog grooming salon! You can go get your hair done while your dog gets theirs done! I’m actually thinking about going to dog grooming school after the new year! :-)

Kait December 19, 2011 at 1:06 pm

My dream is to have a pleasure coaching practice (potentially with other women’s health practitioners).

Jeanne December 19, 2011 at 2:28 pm

My business would be shakes/smoothies. I’m not very good at cooking but somehow seem to make delicious shakes!

Mel December 19, 2011 at 4:29 pm

If I could open my own business, it would either be a brunch spot or some sort of love counseling center.

Nikki @ Heels to Sneakers December 19, 2011 at 5:31 pm

I already know the answer to this because I have always wanted to start a cupcake shop! I thought it would be cool to sell giant cupcakes instead of the standard size ones that most shops have. My husband joked that we could call it “Big Ass Cupcakes” lol.

Ashley F. December 20, 2011 at 7:36 am

If I were to start a business it would be a healthy lunch/dinner cafe with tons of different salad options.

Heather December 20, 2011 at 3:10 pm

I would actually love to do a bakery like this in my hometown in Texas! I live in Boston now, but My hometown friends and family love my baking but I find there are so many misconceptions in the south about vegan food tasting too healthy… I’d like to show them it can be delicious!

Catherine December 20, 2011 at 3:56 pm

My business would be a catering business that uses sustainable ingredients and serves healthy fare.

Amy December 20, 2011 at 10:52 pm

My business I would open would be a drive in! I have never been to one bc we don’t have them here anymore. Attached to my drive in would be a 24 hour 50’s diner complete would outfits and all. Where one could always get a slice of pie at anytime!

Nikki December 21, 2011 at 7:22 am

If I were a billionaire I would like to start up a Murder Mystery Cruise
