Share Your Favorite Healthy Recipe and You Could Win Big!
Contest Deadline: December 31, 2008
The makers of FRENCH’S® Mustard want to know what you are doing for yourself and your family to live a healthier lifestyle. While a commitment to self-improvement includes eating smart, exercising often and making sensible choices, often it’s the little things you do that make a big difference.
For example, did you know that just by replacing mayonnaise with mustard on all your sandwiches over a 12 week period, you could save the equivalent of 8640 calories – that’s almost 2 1/2 pounds!* In addition to adding flavor without the fat, mustard also has several other nutritional benefits, like naturally occurring omega 3’s and selenium, a healthful element which may protect the body from cancer. Mustard also contains several antioxidants such as circumin.
Do you have ‘The Skinny On Mustard?’ Do you use mustard in the secret sauce for your family’s favorite roast chicken? Maybe you’ve found a dip that uses mustard instead of sour cream to cut calories, but that’s just as tasty as the original recipe. If so, consider entering the French’s ‘Do You Have the Skinny on Mustard’ Contest.
To enter, submit a recipe to French’s Do You Have the Skinny On Mustard contest no later than December 31, 2008. The recipe must not exceed 400 words. A prestigious panel of judges including The Next Food Network Star finalist, Kevin Roberts, Chef Armand Vanderstigchel, author of Wings Across America and The Adirondack Cookbook, French’s Test Kitchen directors and other well known foodies will test the top twenty recipes and make final selections.
One grand-prize winner will receive a Day at the Spa for two (ARV $1,500) and a one-year supply of French’s Mustard. Ten runners-up will win American Express gift checks (AV$100 each). See official rules for more details on the contest. Recipes will be evaluated based on quality, creativity, originality and appropriateness of the entry to be used in connection with the French’s Brand.
