What Would You Do for 100 SBD?
What lengths would you go to for 100 SBD? These women took on a 22 day challenge and here are the results!
Heart is the difference between those who attempt and those who achieve (winning 100SBD)!
After a huge announcement calling on Steemians to take on a 22 day vegan challenge for the opportunity to win SBD, @paolapaopoly, @kubbyelizabeth, @splendorhub, @itinerantartist all jumped on board and now after the challenge has come to an end, I am announcing the winners! Exciting, right?
One month ago, I initiated a challenge called #eatlikeasuperstar and invited all of Steemit to join me in a 22 day competition to win 100SBD!
The rules were simple see the original post here!
- Eat vegan for 22 days!
- Take photos of every meal!
- Share here with us!
4 women took my challenge and now that the 22 days are over, let's see how everyone did!
I was looking for:
- creative meals
- challenges faced
- funny stories
- interactions with friends/family
- effort put into post
- commitment to sharing/helping others get involved
... as well as following the few simple rules such as tagging the posts, including proof photos and mentioning the contest.
I've gone through all of the ladies' posts and have called in friends to finally announce our winners!
When I first announced this contest I pledged 100 SBD in prizes!
- 1st place 50 SBD
- 2nd and 3rd place 25 SBD each!
ANNOUNCING THE WINNERS!
I really admire Poly's efforts and for that, am thrilled to award her 1st prize! Every meal was documented with a proof photo and taken with extra care. She brings a Venezuelan background and takes traditional recipes and makes them vegan-delicious!
More than that, there was a lot of heart poured into Poly's posts, she detailed the experience and shared her thoughts and feelings along the way, concluding with videos of the whole experience. I loved hearing and watching Poly's experience and I think you will too! Check it out!
Poly made me drool with her scrumptious photos and recipes that she created for this contest. I know at times it was hard to keep up the creativity but she pushed on and made it to the end! She documented the whole way through so if you want to see her journey you can check it out below!
I'm so happy you ended up deciding to take this challenge Poly! You really exemplified what I wanted this contest to be! Your creativity is a gift and we have all benefited from you sharing! I hope you continue on this path and am so happy to hear that you've been able to experience this journey to the end! Congratulations, you deserve this!
Wow, this girl has serious commitment! Through traveling and shake ups in life, she remained incredibly dedicated to this challenge, always checking labels and asking for ingredients even in the most unsuspecting of places. She caught many hidden animal products in foods and turned them down, all to keep her vow to the contest!
I loved how even while camping, Breanna came prepared with her own vegan meal! That commitment and attention to detail gave you the second place crown! I'm super proud of you and really admire your efforts (especially turning down pizza after a big night out with friends!)
Thanks for taking this challenge Breanna, I really hope that you feel amazing and use your new detective skills in the future! ;) You really have a competitive spirit in you! I just love how you never once gave up! I hope you'll continue on past the end of this challenge!:)
I have to admit, being based in Cali, I knew Nora would be able to take on this challenge no problem! ;) Of course, easier said than done (I'm sure!) Nora made this whole 22 day thing look like a walk in the park (and why shouldn't it be?!) How much fun did you have @splendorhub? :)
Her imagination and lovely creations have made me smile the whole time through! She has an incredibly upbeat attitude and a never give up philosophy! I loved reading her updates and seeing her creativity come through in her food! She even gave me some feels when one of her meals was at Chipotle, a restaurant chain in the USA that helped me through when I was first transitioning myself! I always added the guac! ;)
She talks about wanting to try veganism for some time but this competition gave her the push to really go for it and how does she feel? Check out her final post to see!
Great job Nora! I'm super proud of you and hope you continue this journey! With your mental clarity and energy up, I really think that more great things are to come for you and I am happy to help you continue for as long as you want!
I really want to give a big shout out to @kubbyelizabeth for completing this challenge as well! I know it was tough with a lot of naysayers but you did it and you are rocking reading Proteinholic and showing them all that you can do it and survive! I hope your mom isn't too upset with me for getting you to give up meat for this whole time but I am really happy to hear that you made it through. It can be tricky with labels and ingredients that are not mentioned. It becomes a habit of always asking. I'm happy to continue helping you if you ever have questions or want some advice!
You know, the same struggles come up time and time again when changing a diet and that's why 22 days was necessary to break the habits we have collected over time!
My hope is that now that you all have had this incentive to push you, that your habits will be broken enough for you to choose your own path from here on out!
Remember that your body is going to be sensitive to items you have been without for this time so ease back into them if that is what you choose!
As an added gift, I am offering my services and advice to everyone who participated for free on top of the prize SBD!
Also, I will be adding each participant to my autovoter for the next month as a thank you for entering!
