January Cooking Club Challenge – Thinking Healthy!

So many people are trying to eat right, move more, and improve health – especially at this time of year and considering the holiday bacchanalia we all just survived. Losing weight has to be the most prolific New Years resolution.

So with that in mind, this month’s Cooking Club challenge -- and prize package -- is designed to help you achieve these most worthwhile goals.

When it comes to eating right and/or dieting, everyone has their favorite “staples” – the foods or recipes you depend upon and go back to again and again. It might be your favorite salad, your "go to" brown bag lunch, or a favorite brand of breakfast cereal, or a dessert that satisfies your sweet tooth without breaking your daily allotment of calories and/or fat and carb grams.

For this month’s challenge, we want to hear about your favorite healthy recipes and/or diet foods.

There are two ways to enter and be eligible for this month’s prize package giveaway:

1. Submit your own original healthy eating recipe to To do this you will need to become a site member if you’re not already (registration is fast and free). Click the “submit a recipe link” in the drop down menu for the "Toolbox" in the navigation bar at the top of any page at and fill out the form. Be sure to mention that you are submitting the recipe as part of the Cooking Club Challenge in the “Author’s Notes” field. If you have your own blog and/or website, be sure to include this in the notes field too, so we can link to it and also let folks know about it in our event end wrap-up. Don't worry about details like the "tag fields," a live person edits each recipe before publication.

2. If you favorite healthy eating and/or diet staple foods are brand names convenience products (or more of an idea than an actual recipe), just let us know about them in the comments section below on the page at this link. Again, you will have to be a registered site member to enter comments (and so we can contact you if your name is chosen for the giveaway).

Deadline to participate in this month’s Cooking Club Challenge is midnight Pacific time January 31, 2009.
