As the saying goes “you are what you eat”. So true! Like many of you, eating fresh food is crucial to me in terms of health and nutrition.
The enjoyment of eating fresh stems way back to my early childhood. My grandmother used to grow a variety of vegetables along with my absolute favorite – strawberries. I still remember taking fresh picked strawberries to school and playgrounds, sharing them with other kids.
Even on the road or extended road trips, I try to pack healthy snacks to munch on such as carrots, walnuts and berries. These are easy grab-and-go treats right out of my fridge. Just because you are out, it doesn’t mean that you have to resort to fast foods (feeling bloated anyone?). And the best way to keep the food fresh longer is of course through refrigeration.
Freshpedition, a campaign by GE, shows exactly what a superb fridge can do for food. They reveal how one can eat well on the road with just a little bit of planning, along with the help of the new GE refrigerator by keeping foods fresher, tastier – even crossing through the midst of a barren desert.
GE engineer Justin Berger & celeb chef Ben Sargent take a whopping 2000 mile cross-country road trip over 10 days carrying all kinds of fresh produce, cheese and meats (that they pick up along the way) in the new GE French Door Refrigerator – in the back of the pickup truck! It’s the ultimate fridge test. The fridge was able to extend the freshness during the journey – thanks to all the advanced technology this icy machine has to offer! The style is not so bad either. See it for yourself (you can click on the logo above to go to the official site).
GE is continuing this same passion for fresh food with the Freshpedition Sweepstakes. This sweepstakes uses Pinterest, which means you can actually pin for a chance to win all new GE kitchen appliances.
But wait, there’s even more to win!
You can also enter each day of the sweepstakes for a chance to win a $100 VISA® Prepaid Card. Entering for this prize is fun as you’re asked to pin your favorite fresh foods or your own recipes. Also, these pins when hashtagged with your state (e.g. #GEfreshTX) become part of a “Best of Fresh” map featuring freshness from around the country.
