I really do believe that healthy eating can be enjoyable. I'm not orthorexic by any standard. I eat plenty of things some would consider "toxic." Meat. Processed foods. Cookies. Cake. Which reminds me of a poem I recently wrote for a low-cal snack foods contest on this blog.
Anyway, sorry for the somewhat embarrassing digression. Back to the REAL reason for this post.
I am really not going to change my quest for a healthy lifestyle for me or my family. But I need help! About a year ago, our cousin did a recipe contest on her blog. A few of the healthy meals my husband loves came as a result (including the winning salsa chicken burritos and a white bean chicken chili). But we need more. So, we're having a FIT ME PINK HEALTHY RECIPE CONTEST!
Here are the rules...
- Send us up to two of your FAVORITE "healthy" recipes. We'll use the term "healthy" loosely. Send us recipes YOU consider healthy (low fat, low cal, high fiber, lots of veggies, fruit, whatever.) Send us stuff that you've actually made and loved. Your tried and true recipes. (Note: You can send as many recipes as you want, but only two will be considered for the contest...let us know which ones are the best!)
- Let us know if we can share these recipes on our blog.
- You can email the recipes to firstname.lastname@example.org, or leave your recipe in the comments.
- Tell your friends
- Send them by next Monday, September 15th.
Depending on how many recipes we get, this may take a while. But it will be worth the wait! Between both of us (Kimberly and Robyn), we will try each and every recipe we receive. We will determine the winner based on taste, how easy it is to prepare, whether it's really "healthy", whether our families enjoyed it as much as we did, etc. We will have AT LEAST three winners, and possibly more if we really can't decide which ones are the best. As for now, however, the FIRST PLACE WINNER will receive a $20 Visa Gift Card (to spend however you want!) and the SECOND PLACE WINNER will receive a custom vinyl wall lettering phrase from Starpansie Designs! And just for submitting a recipe, you will be entered into a drawing for another undecided prize...trust us...it will be good!
So SEND US YOUR RECIPES, people! Ones that my husband will beg for...that will replace his desire for artery-clogging "stuff"!
