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.
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. 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.

First off, we want to thank everyone who has visited and supported the SparkPeople Store. We are working hard at developing and sourcing quality products for your healthy lifestyle for reasonable prices. The store has been a great success thanks to member support!
We have received a lot of positive feedback from our store patrons—and some great suggestions. Many members said they would love to purchase gifts for others, such as fruit and flower bouquets, from the store. We are happy to announce that we have partnered with ProFlowers to test several products in our store! When you visit our store, then click the link to place an order from ProFlowers, you'll automatically receive 10% off on your ProFlowers purchase AND SparkPeople will earn revenue from your order, too.
You'll find all ProFlowers products (which include flowers that start at $19.99 and an organic fruit basket, too) in the SparkPeople Store under the heading "SparkGifts."
That page will redirect you to the ProFlowers website where you will complete your transaction.
We hope that you will take advantage of this special ProFlowers offer while it lasts. Next time you need to send a gift to a friend or loved one, be sure to visit the ProFlowers section of the SparkPeople Store to receive your 10% discount AND support SparkPeople at the same time!
