Ingredients GIVEAWAY DAY!

Yes another giveaway - and this is the first of many to come - very excited that I'll be able to share lots of good stuff with my readers in the coming weeks!

Today though - it's a giveaway for Ingredients in downtown Cincinnati!

This was actually one of the first reviews I ever did - before I took pictures even! So long ago! (over 2 years!) Admittedly - we didn't love everything.  But I went back many times...

While working downtown, Ingredients became a staple. Why? Convenience and quality. If you're not familiar with them, they're located in the Westin lobby, open from 6a-6p and basically have 3 options:

* pizza - really big and definitely tasty!
* sandwiches - didn't really ever try these because I like the other options so much
* salad - the line from hell! Great "make your own" salad with so many options!

I tended to get the pizza - mainly because the salad line was sooo long. But really - the salad was my favorite. You stood in line then you had so many decisions to make! (menu here) For those trying to eat healthy - it's a great option because they had a lot of fat-free options to choose from.

So why a giveaway? They will be serving their ONE-MILLIONTH CUSTOMER this week. Fun fact - they have sold nearly 300,000 salads in the past four years - wow - that's just crazy! Something else I didn't know is that they also have breakfast items! Nice...

Ingredients is going to be giving away a $20 gift card to a lucky Food Hussy reader! (how awesome!) But if you don't win from me - you can still win from them. Starting today, drop your business card off and they'll be drawing for a catered lunch for 10 and a free weekend stay at the Westin

    I love Ingredients build-your-own-salads! I always get spinach with black beans, peas, craisins and mozzarella cheese with one scoop of raspberry dressing. Yum! I also love their pizzas and sandwiches too!

  2. I try not to go there as often as I do (aim to brown bag it) but I always get a mixed greens salad with cranberries, tomato, red onion, corn, black beans, tofu and 1,000 Island dressing. I normally grab one of their cute little french breads at checkout too.

  3. I'm a frequent visitor and was so excited that they started a breakfast menu! I have tried it and the veggie and egg white panini is my favorite. You should go! I'd love to read your review!

  7. I'm interested to try their pizza- haven't heard much about it though!


  8. Love their tomato & basil pizza. Salads, too (when I want to wait in line), because I can make something a little different every time I go!


  9. It's all about the cheese panini. Sophisticated grilled comfort food!

  10. The pizza looks great. Also, the breakfast paninis and quesadilla look yummy!

  11. The paninis are really good. I have tried the pizza, paninis and the pre-made salads. I also like that you can grab hard-boiled eggs, veggies and dip, and other stuff!!

  12. The pot roast panini and the spicy roast beef cold sandwich both sound good :)

  13. Also, Twittered it, yo.

  14. I haven't been there in far too long, but when I do go I usually get a salad with romaine, artichoke, cucumber, roasted pepper, tomato, feta, tofu and balsamic vinaigrette. For breakfast, I'd love to try the egg white and grilled vegetable panini. Sounds delicious!(@missprint95)

  15. I seriously go to Ingredients at least 2-3 times a week! I love it! I was even there today and saw the one millionth customer celebration at 11:30. My favorites are the pepperoni pizza and the dijon chicken salad.. delicious! (And, I agree that salad line is ridiculous.)


  16. not going to lie, the pot roast panini looks intriguing. I'd love to try it!
    Congrats to them for their millionth customer.

  17. Mmm, blackened shrimp caesar salad is sooo good :)

  18. OK, I will wait in that awful salad line. It's worth it. I get the Asian or Oriental salad--whatever they call it. With those super yummy fried crunchy things on top! DELISH!

  19. I have never eaten at The Food Hussy, but would love to! The menu for breakfast looks delicious, and so do the salads and sandwiches!!Thank-you for the opportunity to win!

  20. Missy - I'm guessing you mean eaten at INGREDIENTS! HAHA

    Also - need a way to contact you - email, twitter, something.
