UPDATE: We're extending this contest through the end of January 2013 and giving away five more copies. (The first five winners will be notified this week via email.)

Did you commit to cooking more in 2013? Whether you've never been comfortable in the kitchen, you want to make over your existing family recipes, or you need some motivation to give up takeout and fast food, SparkPeople can help!

To kick-start your year of cooking more--and to celebrate the launch of "The SparkPeople Cookbook: Love Your Food, Lose the Weight" in paperback--we're giving you the chance to win one of five copies of our cookbook

Whether you've been on this road to a healthier you for awhile or you're new to SparkPeople in 2013, you'll want to keep reading. This is a giveaway you won't want to miss!

Written with our healthy cooking expert, Meg Galvin, the book is chock-full of over 150 quick and delicious recipes like barbecue chicken pizza, coconut lime shrimp, and mini apple tarts. Since these dishes were created by SparkPeople, you know they’re good for you, too! The book also includes success stories from SparkPeople members, helpful tips on food preparation, pantry checklists, and much more. Think of it as a personal chef in book form, encouraging you to live your best life by making smart food choices, one page and one recipe at a time.

The book was published in paperback on January 2, and it's also available in a new enhanced e-book version, which contains how-to videos and additional content. No matter which version you get, we know you'll love it!

With "The SparkPeople Cookbook: Love Your Food, Lose the Weight," you can eat like a chef and still lose weight—without spending hours in the kitchen! Just look at these recipes:

Peppercorn Steak with Herbed Blue Cheese: A steakhouse-quality supper ready in under 10 minutes!

Meg-herita Pizza: We've bumped up the nutrition--and kept all the flavor--of Pizza Margherita, the traditional Italian pizza with tomato, sliced mozzarella, basil, and olive oil.

Chicken-Veggie Quesadillas with Ranch Yogurt Sauce: This is a great kids’ meal, or cut each quesadilla into eight pieces for an appetizer.  

Three-Cheese Macaroni: Cheesy, rich, delicious--just what you expect in macaroni and cheese. What you won't expect? 2/3 the fat and half the calories of the original!

Spring Cupcakes with Citrus Icing: These cupcakes are perfect for an Easter brunch, a children’s party (no need to tell them the “confetti” inside comes from vegetables), or a graduation celebration.

Slow-Cooker Salsa Chicken: Our #1 recipe, made healthier and easier!

Hungry yet? Don't wait--enter the contest!

    I LOVE the cookbook. I let my sister borrow mine and she doesnt want to give it back lol. I did the same thing with the sticky notes and tabs marking my favorite recipes. It would be awesome to win the paperback version so I can let my sister keep the other one. Good luck to everyone and Keep Sparking! - 1/3/2013   1:15:28 PM
