Last week, we unveiled the first-ever SparkRecipes contest: The SparkRecipes Un-Chained Recipe Contest.

The contest is easy: Pick a favorite unhealthy food from a chain restaurant (fast food or casual dining), and make it over, using healthy ingredients.

So why haven't you entered? Get out there and get cooking!

We've already received plenty of great entries, so you can start making and voting on your favorites now.

Still haven't made up your mind? You've got plenty of time left. We've extended the deadline to enter!

You have until midnight on Nov. 2 to enter.

And what will you win?

If you're one of the 10 semifinalists, you'll get $25 to spend on SparkPeople merchandise in the SparkPeoplestore. Two lucky winners (one each in fast food and casual dining) will get a Vita-Mix 5200 blender, worth $450.

Vita-Mix blenders are amazing. We have one in the SparkPeople office, and all summer long I used it to make Green Monsters. This blender crushes ice, frozen fruit and pretty much anything else you throw in it! Trust me when I say you want to win this blender.
