Pure Indian Foods Giveaway: Ghee, Coconut Oil, and More! (GIVEAWAY CLOSED)

UPDATE: The giveaway is closed! A huge thanks to everyone who entered. A winner will be chosen shortly. :)

“Have I mentioned that I love heavy whipping cream? Because I do.”

My friend eyed me warily as I lifted the carton to my lips. I paused for a moment, giving him a pointed look, and didn’t break the staring contest as I drained three-quarters of the carton in several (immensely manly) gulps.

“Delicious,” I added, once I could see the fear in his eyes. “I feel so saturated right now.”

Is that weird? That’s probably weird. But let’s call it a neat segue into the next point: dairy is weird. In the Paleo context, at least, it sits firmly in a grey zone, offering a multitude of health benefits paired with legitimate concerns about lactose, casein, etc. Cow products are usually the first to go when people start tweaking what they eat, and while I can’t fault anyone for experimenting, I do feel the anti-dairy crowd is missing a pretty important point: butter tastes amazing. I, uh, might also eat straight butter on occasion.

Ghee, however, has a reputation of universal adoration. Much like coconut oil, it has quickly gained star status in the Paleo community, which should make this next sentence much more exciting than that little story above: I’m giving both of them away!

Hit the jump to hear all about the giveaway I’ve cooked up with Pure Indian Foods.

If you haven’t heard of the company, here’s a brief primer: Pure Indian Foods is a New Jersey-based, family-owned business that makes organic ghee from grass-fed, extraordinarily happy cows. If you haven’t heard of ghee, here’s an even briefer description: it’s butter without the bad.

People with lactose intolerance can usually consume ghee without issue, which should make it incredibly attractive to anyone lacking that buttery flavor in their daily routine. Even regular dairy consumers might want to experiment with it, however, as the clarification process used in its creation tends to richen that same flavor that everyone loves.

I’m a fan of the stuff, in any case, and cook with it almost as frequently as coconut oil. You can also use it as a dip, apparently, which might be the greatest idea I’ve heard all day.

But let’s get to the contest, shall we?

The Prizes

Pure Indian Foods has generously offered three things:

  • One 14 oz jar of Grassfed Organic Ghee
  • One 14.5 oz jar of Virgin Organic Coconut Oil
  • One 6 x 1.1 oz sampler pack of Herbal/Spiced Ghee

This is awesome. I used (and loved) their ghee in the past, so everyone pause a moment to applaud the great generosity on display. If you’re curious about any of these products — especially the last one, which I’m (joking!) tempted to steal for myself — click here to check out the wide variety of nifty things that Pure Indian Foods has to offer.

Shipping is free to addresses within the United States. International winners will have to pay shipping and any other applicable customs duties.

The Contest

And here’s the easy part: leave a comment down below! Doing so will throw your name in the hat for the random drawing that’ll occur on Sunday, March 27th, 2011.

If you’d like to increase your chances, however, you can do a few things:

If you do either (or both!) of those things, please make mention of it in your comment so I can verify it and then toss your name in the hat one or two more additional times.

And that’s all there is to it!

Some Brief Administration Stuff

It’s been a slow week at Three New Leaves, but with good reason: I have another ebook coming! Look for a debut post next week where I’ll announce the idea and describe it in full. I’m hoping to release it before the World Domination Summit in June, so rest assured all of my free time is being devoted to making this book as spectacular as it can be.

(If you haven’t read Simpler yet, by the way, feel free to do that now.)

  1. iniquity says:

    Wow didn’t know this place was in Jersey, gonna place an order soon thanks for the heads up!

  2. Karin Buchanan says:

    ok….first things first. I LOVE HEAVY CREME AND BUTTER AND I’M NOT GOING TO APOLOGIZE EVER EVER EVER FOR THAT! (That’s the German in me yelling…was brought up on full fat dairy and glad for it!)
    It’s sad to me that so many people don’t understand the idea behind fats, dairy, cow things in general…like you said, when folks go on a diet it’s the cow that goes first usually as well as the good fats you need.
    Thanks for your great posts…and thanks for this cool opportunity to win some awesome stuff!

  3. Suzan says:

    Please enter me in the contest. I adore Pure Indian Foods Ghee. I am casein intolerant, so I use it (and coconut oil, too.) all the time. Unfortunately, it’s a big expense for us. I really enjoy your blog, and I linked it to my blog (it’s about weight loss and Primal Blueprint.) I’m a Pure Indian Foods Facebook fan. I don’t do twitter, as I have an ancient phone, lol. Thanks for your blog, I really enjoy it.

  4. Sassy says:

    Okay: this is one contest it is more than worthwhile to enter! I even followed on Twitter and Liked on Facebook — I have wanted to try ghee outside of my favorite Indian restaurants but what can I say? I’m lazy so I haven’t made my own yet. Not only would I enjoy these products, I would share them with my 78 year old mother who was just told by a neurologist “we’ve been wrong all these years. To get your cholesterol to the right place follow this (low carb) diet.” Mom called to say “I think my doctor wants me to eat like you!”

  5. Erin says:

    I love Pure Indian Food’s ghee! I bought my first jar last month and this stuff is amazing! If you haven’t tried it, you definitely should and if you have, you already know how amazing it is. Butter flavor with a high smoking point. I actually find I’m using it even more than my coconut oil and that is saying a lot.b Great give away!

  6. Chris Randall says:

    I’m severely lactose-intolerant, and have wanted to try ghee but have been anxious about it (my symptoms are no fun). Does the ghee-making process that Pure Indian Foods (I liked them on Facebook, as I did Three New Leaves) help reduce lactose content better than clarifying butter at home?

    Thanks, and I enjoy this blog very much.

  7. Diane says:

    Ooh, ooh! This would be cool to win. I’ve liked & followed Pure Indian Foods on FB & Twitter and just did the same for you. :-)

  8. Tessa Zeng says:

    My housemate just introduced us all to coconut oil! Is it true that it’s the healthiest fat to cook with?

    & this giveaway is awesome. Count me in :D

    (‘All’ your free time? Heh.)

    • Matt Madeiro says:

      That might be a slight exaggeration. ;) Don’t worry, we’ll have plenty of time to dominate the world!

      • Matt Madeiro says:

        Also, yes, coconut oil (alongside macadamia nut oil, though I haven’t used that yet) is a spectacularly healthy one to cook with. Enjoy!

        Try frying sweet potatoes in it, by the way. You’ll never look at them the same way again.

    • Susan says:

      Matt switched me to coconut oil as well, I was weak against his coco-oil-praises. It’s amazing on some shrimp stir fry, or anything really. Sometimes I stir in just a little over some brown rice or vegetables to sweeten it up.

      It’s also a natural antibiotic and sunscreen (be careful, I’ve heard you can still burn if you’re not applying a ton if it but personally haven’t tried it). This winter part of my face was persistently dry and after 2 days of coconut oil that cleared up too.

      I think coconut oil might possibly also be able to do your taxes, send more traffic to your blog, and otherwise save the world.

  9. Catherine says:

    Cool contest! Sounds like a great deal.

  10. Jonathan says:

    I love the looks I get when I’m putting heavycream in my coffee and I tell them I’m trying to up my fat intake (I work at a hospital which makes it too easy to get those looks).

    Fan of yours and of Pure Indian Foods now. Will share both.

  11. Jeanette says:

    Hi Matt. Thanks for your blog post. I love heavy cream too. My favorite dessert is homemade ice cream made with Organic Pastures raw cream and raw honey and that’s it! Yum yum yum. My hubby loves it too. We have it about 2x a month. I’ve never had ghee before. It would be nice to try it. I’d like to say to all those who have trouble with butter. For years I thought that I was lactose intolerant. Then I discovered that I was actually having trouble with pasteurized milk products only. I learned that pasteurization kills the enzymes that help with milk digestion. I can eat raw dairy with no issues. Yay! I make sure to drink/eat raw dairy products from well raised animals. Here’s to your health!

  12. Cindy says:

    I really enjoy your blog. I’m currently in the middle of trying to simplify my cluttered life and have been researching the Primal Blueprint. I’m having some difficulty making the change due to various factors but nonetheless I am making baby steps! Thanks for all your great info. I did find this company on Facebook and am excited to try their products.

  13. Krystal says:

    Best. Giveaway. Ever.

    I haven’t seen Grassfed Ghee anywhere around here. I would love to get my paws on the stuff!

    Count me in! :)

  14. Geri says:

    Would love a chance to try any of these products….just finished a cup of decaf with heavy cream…yummy! I’ve only been following the primal blueprint for about 2 weeks and have already lost 2 inches off my waist!

  15. Juliana says:

    The ghee sounds amazing … I’ve never tried it, but I DO love butter and have been blending both butter and coconut oil into my smoothies.

    Thanks for the giveaway!


  16. Kyle says:

    Watched the Fathead DVD today and it exceeded my expectations! Thanks again and if this is a random drawing, maybe I’ll get lucky a second time…;)

  17. Sarah says:

    Ghee… it always makes me think of “Little Black Sambo” and the tigers running so fast.

  18. jana says:

    I’d love to try some. I’ve used ghee from Costco and it was pretty good but not grass fed i’m sure.

  19. Erica Gott says:

    Oh, please do enter me in the contest, Matt! I love ghee and VCO. I have mostly made my own ghee, but this stuff sounds divine. I liked Pure Indian Foods on FB and am following them on Twitter (you, too!).

    I’m in Ireland at the moment, traveling around. I may have you ship to my home in Arlington, TX, where my daughter can either use them or hold them for me until I get back.

    Thanks for holding this contest!


  20. cindy says:

    I have used ghee before but would love to try the spiced ghee…thanx for the chance

  23. Ashley North says:

    I don’t think I’ve ever had ghee! I do cook with coconut oil all the time, it’s simply amazing. Slurping heavy whipping cream out of the carton?? Not so much….I’m glad you don’t have us doing THAT as part of the contest! ;) You’re one of a kind, Matt!

  24. Nina Yau says:

    I’m not entering the contest, but I do want to say, You glutton! ;) Ha, I kid, I kid. Hope all’s well, my friend.

  25. I love WHIPPED CREAM too! “But thats so fattening!” – yeah right. I’ve never used ghee though and was curious about it. This sounds delicious! I like how you’re implementing prizes – way cool.

    I retweeted your post and am following on Twitter :) and reposted on my FB page lol Keep up the good work matt!

  26. Julie says:

    Please add me to the drawing. I love cooking with ghee and coconut oil. I haven’t found a grass-fed ghee, so I’m thrilled to learn of the company. Thanks.

  27. Mike says:

    I enjoy reading your blog keep up the good work and encouragement!

    Please enter me in the contest x3! I also liked Pure Indian Foods on FB and am following them on twitter!


  28. Shawna says:

    I also love butter but can’t tolerate most other dairy products. Honestly, I’m fine with that. As far as I’m concerned, butter wins above all other forms of dairy!

  29. Theresa says:

    I’d like to enter for the giveaway. Thanks!

  30. Susan says:

    Fun!! I love the creativity behind this contest, you are increasingly becoming more and more of a badass every time I come to your blog.

    My Mom uses whipping cream for mashed potatoes and when she bakes, but when we’re there my husband uses it in his coffee and then tends to immediately feel bad about it. Even if he wasn’t naturally slender, which he is, I would tell him to do it anyway. It’s all about the right combination. Plus dairy and different foods effects everybody differently.

    Hey everyone, because of Matt’s blog here, I switched to coconut oil and I love it. Delicious to cook with, I use it on my face sometimes, I often put just a dab in my tea to make it a little creamy. Learn it, love it, live it.

  31. Jen Gresham says:

    Oh why not, add my name to the list of lucky (potential) winners. Fun contest and great idea!

  32. Vicky Autry says:

    Me, Matt! Pick me!

  33. Melissa says:

    Mmm, haven’t tried ghee but hear that its wonderful! Thanks for all of your posts… Learning about the paleo/primal side of life myself!

  34. Leslie says:

    Ooooo… I wanna win!! I <3 ghee and coconut oil!! Even more if they are FREE!!

  35. Laina Lamb says:

    Matt, Love Simpler and would love to win some ghee. Both my son, daughter, and I have given up mild due to health issues, and would love to get the flavor of real butter back into our lives. Thanks for all you’re doing!

  36. Andrea says:

    Thanks for this post, I will also like Pure Indian Foods on Facebook. I am also hoping that they have an online store where I will for sure be ordering from…after I fall in love with their products that I win in this contest! :o )

  37. angela says:

    thanks for giving me an awesome new website to check out!!!

  38. Dea says:

    Yes yes yes please!!!
    Our family has entirely changed the way we eat and ghee was next on my list! Oh man, this would be FANTASTIC!!! Thanks :)

  39. Nina Nelson says:

    Oh I need some ghee! I’ve been off dairy for a while now because of the wonderful rash it causes (I was so hoping that the culprit was something not delicious) and I really miss butter. I’ve heard good things about this company from lots of people.

  40. Allie says:

    Weeeeeeee a giveaway!

  41. gharkness says:

    Wow, coconut oil AND ghee! Exciting. I did the Facebook Like and the twitter follow. Thanks for giving us a chance at these!

  42. Elaine Corwin says:

    I usually make my own but of course it’s from store-bought butter. The happy organic cow thing + no cooking = much better! Count me in!

  43. Joy says:

    I love all 3 . Thanks for the chance to win :) )

  44. Emma says:

    Sounds good! Count me in :)

  45. Kimberly Birch says:

    I follow Pure Indian Foods on Facebook. Love their products! :-)

  46. Ashley says:

    I’ve never heard of Ghee but now I am definiately interested in trying it and I have been looking for coconut oil in the local stores near me and have yet to find any. The one store that does actually carry it was all out. :-( I’m a newborn to Primal eating (only 4 weeks now) but I can already tell a difference in how I look and feel. So I am super excited about any new foods that are introduced to me. Thank you for posting this as now I will never have to worry about not being able to find these products. Thanks again!

  47. Sweet! I’m a lover of all things dairy & when I eliminated them from my diet a while back the only difference I felt was sadness. I’m also a big fan of coconut oil & coconut in general. Yesterday I experimented making a Hawaiian style pie with chocolate, heavy cream & coconut–yum!
    Thanks for introducing us to Pure Indian Foods. I followed them on Twitter & will be exploring their website.

  48. Nicole O says:

    Funny how just arriving home from my favorite authentic Indian buffet and discussing home-cooking some of these amazing platters and this is the first thing I notice in my inbox… this sounds like heaven. =) Also newly on the Primal/Paleo path starting Lent – and running on 3 years as incredibly lactose intolerant. Perhaps ghee could make me learn to like the taste of butter again without fear of some digestively violent repercussions…

    Also new to subscribing to the blog. Found you through Mark’s Daily Apple, and you’re pretty much living the life I’ve been dreaming of, having travel, food, outdoor time, and being adventurous in all three. I’m jealous. :)

    (I don’t have twitter, but I did add them on facebook. Bonus!)

    BTW – I’m from NJ, so am thrilled to support a business there.

  52. Gdub says:

    I’ve always loved Ghee and butter. Cutting back on milk has been good, but I make use of it every once in awhile.

    Anyhow, I’m stoked for the contest and I followed on twitter, and liked on FB.

  53. Ri says:

    Oh this is awesome! Thanks Matt!

  54. ingrid says:

  55. Matt says:

    I’ve been paleo for over a year and it’s great, but it is refreshing to hear there are still paleo foods i haven’t tried. GHEE SOUNDS AMAZING!

  107. Primal Toad says:

    Hey Matt! I linked over to your blog from MDA. All I have to say is WOW! I LOVE it. I am also looking to live a very minimalist lifestyle. I have yet to do it but am starting today by truly de-cluttering my life. I plan on moving to California before we strike 2012! Are you going to Primal Con by any chance?

    I already follow Pure Indian Foods on twitter and am already a fan of their facebook page. I have yet to purchase their Ghee but will do so soon if I do not win it from this awesome contest. I am currently giving away another $50 Amazon Gift Card over at my blog. More specific giveaways will be done in the future.

    Keep doing what you do!

  108. Jwey says:

    I just recently tried Pure Indian Foods Grass Fed Ghee for the first time, and was so impressed by its delicious, sweet taste. I have a casein sensitivity which is why I don’t use butter. I’ve tried other brands of ghee and their flavor always seemed a little off-putting to me. Pure Indian Foods is WAY above the others, in terms of taste. I would love to utilize more of it but it is a bit pricey for my retiree budget. I used my jar of the other brand of ghee (the yucky tasting one) to melt down and mix with melted coconut oil, which tempered the other brand’s “off” taste. I wouldn’t dare waste Pure Indian Foods ghee doing that because on its own it is so tasty. Winning some would sure help with my conversion from a no-fat, vegan diet to paleo/primal. Paleo eating is much more difficult than vegan on my retiree budget. Even though I’m old I haven’t given up on optimal health & fitness. I’d love to Twitter & Facebook but I’m an old fart and don’t know how to do that stuff. I barely know how to get on the internet. So, Matt, please have mercy on us old, technologically challenged farts and perhaps throw my name in the hat a few times because I’d like to Twit & Face for no other reason than to say how great of a product Pure Indian Foods Ghee is. Matt, I enjoy reading about your escapades.

    I love me some ghee!

  116. Steph says:

    Love ghee and coconut oil, and would love to try the spiced ghee with veggies!

  117. Leslie says:

    Ghee is the best…I’m off to have an Indian brunch. Yes, I “liked” Pure Indian Foods on Facebook (don’t tweet, sorry).

  118. Janna says:

    I love my healthy saturated fats. I’m a twitter and FB follower now too, they look like great products. I’ve never purchased pre-made ghee because I’m never sure where the butter came from, so their grass-fed stuff is a great idea!

  119. Josh says:

    I love coconut oil and look forward to trying ghee!

  120. Chase Saunders says:

    Count me in.

  121. A.B. says:

    Yum! Please enter me! I’ve never tried ghee, but I hear it’s delicious. It’s just not readily available here. :( I don’t consume dairy, but I do occasionally treat myself to some butter. ‘Cuz buttah makes it bettah!

  122. David Lui says:

    Ghee and coconut oil are so delicious! I use them daily however I haven’t tried the ones from Pure Indian Foods. Would love to try theirs! I have liked them on facebook but don’t have a twitter. Oh yea I agree, heavy cream is great to drink and in coffee also.

  123. Taibo says:

    Ghee me.

  124. Dave Fish says:

    I’ve always wanted to try ghee but I didn’t know where to buy it. I’ll definitely check out their site.

  125. Nora says:

    Just got through your first e-book and loved it! Keep ‘em coming :)

  126. Daniel says:


  127. Ian says:

    Followed them on twitter, too. I’ve always wanted their ghee but it’d be so rough on my pocketbook. Maybe I can find out if it’s worth it.

  128. Dustin says:

    Thanks for the giveaway! I also liked on Facebook.

  129. myles456 says:

    I love coconut oil, never tried ghee (can’t find it around here)

  130. Allison says:

    Excited to find your website. I’m looking forward to reading it.

  131. Kyle says:

    Nice blog! I’ve never had virgin coconut oil or ghee before, but it would be cool to try them out.

    I also followed you on Twitter and Liked you on Facebook! Keep doing good things!

  132. Carson Wright says:

    Coconut oil is the be-all end all of cooking fats. It makes everything more filling and tasty, and can also be used as sunscreen. Try doing that with uber-processed vegetable oil.

  133. I didnt know this company was in the states! I’m excited!

    I liked them on Facebook and followed on twitter!! AwesomeGhee!!

  134. Rachael says:

    Fantastic! Count me in!

  135. Catherine says:

    Thanks so much for this opportunity! I have been wanting to try Pure Indian Foods and I love coconut oil!!

  136. Eric says:

    Awesome! Liked on facebook as well… great site. Here via MDA!

  137. Scott GrantSmith says:

    I’ve eaten butter plain and I’ve had heavy cream straight from the carton. However, I’ve never had ghee before. I’d like to correct that oversight.

    (I’m also following on Facebook and Twitter (ScottMGS).)

  138. Gordon Shannon says:

    You’ve inspired me to continue my *bad* habit of drinking heavy cream! It’s been a tasty vice of mine for years, earning me many an odd look and health-motivated exclamation. But now that I know I’m not the only one who does it, and thinks it’s healthy, I shall continue contently!

  139. Amy Posner says:

    Now following Pure on Twitter… their ghee looks divine!
    By sheer coincidence I just placed my first order from them today!

  140. Keegan says:

    Ooh. Ghee! Coconut Oil! My goodness, enter me.

  141. Melissa King says:

    This is one contest I have to enter! I love love love ghee & coconut oil but probably cook with it less than I should be. Thanks for offering it :)

    I love coconut everything, and my hippie-voodoo girlfriend recently got me into ghee! I’ve love the chance to try this stuff! Thanks for the opportunity!


  145. Benjamin says:

    Ah, I’d love to try some ghee. I’ve had grass fed butter before, but never ghee.

    Also, I’ve followed PIF on Twitter: http://twitter.com/Benpercent

  147. Payam says:

    Hope I win!!!!!

  148. Jeffrey Strickland says:

    I want to win!!

  149. Kristina Parrish says:

    I have never tried ghee.. don’t even know where I would find it. I hear how great it is and I’m am very curious. I started going Primal over a month ago and have never felt better physically and mentally!

  150. Susan M. says:

    I hope I didn’t miss the cut off! I LOVE Pure Indian Food’s ghee. It is sooo amazing when I cook omelets in it or cook anything in it really. I had given up butter for a long time (even before I recently started switching over to Paleo/Primal eating), so to me this was a Godsend when I discovered an advertisement for it on another site. I would SO love to have some more, in addition to the coconut oil (haven’t tried their brand, but I do love me some coconut oil as well!) and the herbed ghee (drool).

    I also “Like” Pure Indian Foods on Facebook :)

  151. Megan says:

    I’ve always wanted to try coconut oil. I have picked up jars before thinking I might purchase them and then I always end up putting it back for whatever reason. Winning some might make me keep the jar in my cart next time I’m perusing the grocery isles.

  152. Brian says:

    I have been primal for about 1 1/2 yrs and loving it. My wife is kind of Vegitarian/Primal, but has recently taken up learning how to cook Indian meals. We were talking about Ghee just the other day, but have never tried it. looking forward to giving it a try.

  153. Jim Goldsmith says:

    I literally just ran out of coconut oil this morning. I could use a free jar.

  154. jessica says:

    Oh how I adore the ghee from Pure Indian foods! Simply the best!

  155. Matt says:

    I’ve always wanted to try ghee but haven’t because it’s usually a little pricey

  156. Crazy Radishes says:

    I love ghee! Hope my comment isn’t too late for the cut-off! I’ve followed them on twitter also, my twitter name is crazyradishes.

  157. Ruth Stewart says:

    Hey! Thanks for the heads up about this cool company!

  158. warren says:

    I made some clarified butter the other day but would love to try the Pure Indian Foods product. I have “liked” them on FB already.

  159. Crystal C says:

    I would LOVE to win a jar of ghee!

  160. SuBee says:

    Hi, I’ve never tried ghee–hope I get lucky!


  161. Liz says:

    Bummer, I think I’m too late.
    Good reason to read my email sooner, huh?
    Anyway, I LOVE BUTTER, CREAM, BUTTER and CREAM! Haven’t tried ghee yet but now I am intrigued. I already like Pure Indian foods on FB but that likely doesn’t help my late entry either. But, hey, like the lottery, you never know…
    Happy eating!
