The push to 50!

Well, two people broke the tie of the poll and said that soda was the last drink they’d be able to give up, more than coffee (40% to 30%) Tea and booze each tied for third with 15% of the votes. New poll is up! I’d love to hear comments on it, just in case I missed one you truly hate…

So a few days ago I told y’all that I would be holding a contest when I hit 50 readers. I hit 46 today (much love, Miss Nikki), so I better let you in on the rules now. This contest will be going on until I hit 50, so I will be posting the rules every Monday until I get there, okay?

I’m going to do a little twist on the normal “if you get me more followers you win” thing that most of us do. If you read yesterday's blog you’ll see that I’m trying to watch what I eat and what foods do me in the most. That being said (or read), to enter this contest you have to send me

Recipes!

Yep, that’s it. To be entered into the contest you have to send me your favorite HEALTHY recipes. You can send up to five, but note you will only get one entry into the contest. This may sound like a jip, BUT! I’m not picking the winner out of a hat or at random. I am picking the best recipe as the winner! So you are welcome to enter only one or all five, because you never know, I’m a picky bitch and that fourth recipe you send may be the winner! I’ll also post the winning recipe up when I announce the winner.

I will give anyone bonus entries, though, if I do get a new follower that says “I came here from so and so’s blog”, so feel free to pimp me and the contest out. I don’t mind a bit :)

A couple of notes to help you win:

*I hate eggs! HATE THEM! Unless they are in a mix of some sort.

*I like spices, but not too spicy. I usually pick out peppers and onions, but I love the way they enhance the flavor of a dish.

*I’m looking for main courses, sides, desserts, soups, anything that can be made easily and healthily! (Hey “healthily” is a word!)

What’s in it for you, you ask? Well, before I left Australia I picked out some knick-knacks knowing that eventually I would be holding a giveaway. I’m not rich (I ain’t got no job!), but the items are all cute and practical, and you can tell everyone that they’re authentic! Also to my international readers (who are welcome to enter), I will throw in a little California love for you! I tried to take a picture of one of the prizes but my camera is crap, so I will show you a sort of sample of what’s in store:

Not the real magnet, but you get the idea!

 

I hope you guys will enter…I figure this is a way for me to get some new recipes to learn and also give you guys a little piece of my Aussie heart <3 Feel free to send the recipes my way at Hed@hedabovewater.com. Good luck!

  1. uhm my most favorite healthy recipe is Absolute on ice. It's carb free, and if you drink enough you barf it up and then the next day you are really too nauseous to eat so it's like slim fast but without the chalky taste. Also just followed you. Sorry we didn't meet earlier.

  2. I hope you get to 50. I last month I got to 50 and was happy. And to bribe people to entice more to follow I offered to post a picture of myself from back when I was a stripper. I am almost to 100 now.

  4. i guess my recipe for deep fried butter is out, huh? :)

    @ thepeachy1 i like the vodka idea!

    id love to give you a recipe, but as you know by my blog, i am not a healthy eater.

    i will think about some of the quick healthy stuff i have made in the past, but in the meantime, water...lot o water!

    i found you thru the blogs well fed spirit/bitch called mom...(mrs hyde)

    i love this post. it is ironic that it is a circle of pain.

    i feel your pain.

    as a guy that has been in the construction field for the last 20 years, and food service for 12 before that, i have no diagnosed maladys, but i understand the idea of pain. there are very few days that i don't wish i could get a 'scrip to vicodin...

    i will stick around...

  6. The peachy-Hi and welcome! Well, I had a margarita tonight, does that work?

    OT-Okay, now I have to scour your archives for that picture...and I have many an R-rated pic available lol, but I think my reader base is what, 98% female?

    SF-That's what I'm talking about! Chop chop!

    Bruce-I was like WTF??! The first part made sense but the second? Hee hee I'll keep it up for posterity!

  7. Hed- You will get used to Bruce, he is adorable. @Bruce- This is the second time I have seen you find people through Mrs Hyde. Going to work through my list next I hope Darl'n

    Back to Hed-I have heaps of recipes from when I did Weight Watchers. Lots of them are packed though. Happy to scout some up but I probably dont need the magnet. Do you like Vegetarian? I got a great chilli recipe that can be made mild

  11. I had no idea I wasn't following this blog Hed - so there you go - one closer :D

    Do you want the recipe here or via email? I can do either. I have two super easy, healthy ones in mind.

    Hugs and have a great day!

  12. I will definitely find someo f those recipes for you...I actually found a super yummy pork taco one yesterday....
    I hate eggs as well so if you would be willing to share some breakfasty non-egg recipes that you get I would love it..
    One of the blogs that I read on a regular basis (I lurk mostly at this one) is http://mybizzykitchen.com/
    She always has awesome healthy recipes up- she has recently started doing weight watchers so all her recipes have points with them...you should definitely check her out...

  15. Damn it...I don't know how to cook. At all. So I know no recipes. So I'm gonna pimp out your blog instead! That counts as an entry right?

  16. Thisisme and everyone else! I used the magnet as a sampling of SOME of the goodies I have-I don't want you to think it's JUST a magnet! :)

    Mynx-I understand if you're too busy with moving! Take your sweet ass time!

    Skippy-You weren't? Doh! And thanks! E-mail will be best since I can keep track of everyone and their recipes that way.

    Colenic-Ooh, thanks for the blog info, I'll have to check her out.

    Barb-Hope so!

    Odie-I'm not really a chili person but I've seen your recipes before and they look AMAZING, so send away!

    JM-See why I'm scrounging for recipes? And yes blog pimping counts!
