Six Week Health Week Four (Win 380 Steem!)

in health •  7 days ago

Week Four of the Six Week Health Challenge

As we move past half way on the Six Week Health Challenge, #sixweekhealth, I once again have to say a big thank you to Steemit - so many of you have been getting involved in this challenge since it started. We've had so many people joining in the challenge for a chance to win sixty Steem each week, but we've also had loads of people just supporting the content with comments and upvotes. Clearly Steemians and working hard to prioritise their health.

Last week was about how you look after your mental health and de-stress yourself. We had some great entries and you can check out the finalists HERE. Go and read those posts to learn about the quality you need to achieve if you want to be the person winning sixty Steem this week!

You can no longer enter for Week One, Two or Three of the Six Week Health Challenge but you can still check them out below and try them yourself! After all, getting healthy is what this challenge is all about, winning Steem is just a little extra bonus (read on to learn more about winning sixty Steem this week).

Week Four Challenge - make a healthy dessert

asd (Medium).jpg

In Week One we had some amazing entries with healthy recipes, but they were nearly all savoury apart from a handful of desserts. I don't know about you, but one of the things I find hardest is finding something that satisfies my sweet tooth, that isn't unhealthy. Changing unhealthy desserts for healthy ones can help you stay leaner, feel fitter and eat more healthily overall.

So this week, I want you guys to make a healthy dessert. Perhaps it's a firm favourite already, or perhaps find a new recipe to try - I don't mind. The best four healthy dessert recipes will be entered in to the final vote at the end of the week. The entry with the most votes will winSixty-Steem.pngfor themselves.

Want the best chance to winSixty-Steem.pngthis week?
Here is what good posts will be judged on:

1. Lots of good quality original photos

The point of this health challenge is to get involved yourself and to inspire others to do the same. If you post a bunch of stock images then that kind of proves that you didn't physically get involved this week or else you could have taken some photos. Posts should also have a few images - one or two just won't cut it. Obviously make sure they aren't blurry or dark.

2. Focus on step by step instructions

Some of the best entries in our first recipe challenge where those with clear step by step instructions. Including photos of each step is a great way to help us follow a long with your recipe.

3. Make a great recipe

First, make sure it's actually healthy. We did have some dessert recipes in week one but half of them were just normal cakes full of sugar and fat. We want healthy options. Second, make it interesting and creative. Just love brownies? Show us how to make a healthy version. Can't get enough of cheesecake? Find an alternative. We want solutions to our sweet toothed problems!

The food that we put in our bodies is so important, but that doesn't mean we have to eat boring tasteless food. Making healthy food interesting and inspiring will help us all eat better - and that's the goal of this challenge!

~~~

Rules for Entering - READ CAREFULLY!!!

1. Create a post with the tag #sixweekhealth about the healthy recipe you made this week.

Living a healthy life requires a healthy meal. I think am in for this contest .

I love to cook, but to decorate the food I'm still not proficient, please guidance.

Keep it simple and neat!

@healthsquared Wow, luckily the deadline is on 21st Feb, so that I have some time for the preparation (Tomorrow is Chinese New Year and I will be busy until 19th Feb lol)

For this week, I will try my best to think out a healthy dessert (even though I'm not with desserts)

Que mejor que un postre saludable bajo en azúcar gracias por esta gran idea

·

Thank you for the comment

I am in, but I must say that again"you haven't interested in my 3. week post yet." I spent a lot of effort and time on this topic. As if There were a mistake about my post?
Thanks for your interest @healthsquared

·

I read and enjoyed your post - I'm not sure what makes you so sure that I didn't read it?

·
·

I am sure that you read but In generaly when you read then upvoted our posts. Unfortunately, this time you haven't upvoted

·
·
·

Nope, I haven't upvoted any posts. Just because I read something doesn't mean it gets an upvote!

good post. I like it.

A carb free lemon CHEESECAKE!?? What!!! Need that.

·

Sort of cheating - it has no crunchy base. But it's still really good.

You take 1 tub of fat free cottage cheese, juice and zest of 4 lemons, 3 eggs and your choice of sweetener (eg. Splenda or Stevia). Blend that all together, put in small ramakins and then bake in a bain marie for 45 mins on about 180 deg C. Maybe I'll make a proper post on it one day soon!

You joining in the challenge @foovler?

·
·

When I have the time I would. Will try to...

I am so in

·

Wooo! Can't wait to see your entry.

I love this, I will love to start this week

Thanks for sharing

·

Thanks for getting involved - I'll look out for your entry!

It's great, that there are useful and delicious desserts))) I'm curious to see the recipes!

·

Yes, I think after all the recipes have been submitted I might make a big post including all of the posts and authors so we can all find and try the recipes!

·

wow she so cuttttttttttttttte

Nice idea,combination of creativity with healthy foods.. thinking I will join this contest @healthsquared

·

Great to have you @mikemaphu, can't wait to have you involved

Can I write more than one entry?

·

You may yes, but only one entry per person can make the final four :)

Great contest. Would be participating.
I'm in.

·

Great to hear!

This is a good contest,its good to eat healthy, i have been doing a fast on snacks for the past one month,trying to get back in shape.

·

Sounds awesome. Can't wait to read your healthy dessert recipe!

Cook something that taste meaty and chewy and takes more calories to digest than it has per gram. Health +100

·

Hopefully you don't put meat in a dessert!

·
·

It doesn't have to be meat to be meaty. Maybe there's a tree bark that tastes like meat and chewy like a.. a.. have you ever tried dudhbari? it's a juicy sweet, but not that sweet, treat. I had some when I was in Nepal. unforgettable. ok meaty, chewy, juicy and takes more calories to digest than it has.

I love the idea of a health challenge. Eating clean and working out are super important to me and I love that so many people want to improve their lifestyles. I have an 8 year old son and he's been hanging out at the gym with me since he was tiny and he loves to workout and play sports. I hope this love is always with him!

I am not any kind of cook so I won't be entering the challenge lol but one of the best healthy brownie recipies I've had was made with cocoa, balsamic vinegar and black beans and it truly tasted just like a dark chocolate brownie!

·

What? Why not enter? I want to know your brownie recipe!

·
·

lol...when you put it that way I may have to!

Hi, I'm in

this is so good

yo sufro de obesidad con tan solo 22 años por problemas hormonales y era adicta a los dulces, fue difícil comenzar tener una vida sana, pero al ver los cambios al dejar el azúcar refinada en tan solo 1 mes siento el cambio, ahora busco alternativas mas sanas a la hora de preparar dulces.

·

That's great! Make a post about some dessert alternatives you've tried without sugar for us :D

I can't wait to see all the desserts created by Steemians. Thank you @healthsquared for organizing this and showing that sweets don't have to be full of sugar and fat. Yay!

·

Yeessss! Exactly. Finding ways to have desserts that aren't full of fats and sugar makes eating healthily so much easier. Nice to see you again @loveself

Thanks for your kind words @mildreduh, I can't wait to see what you post!

I'm in! I finally get to share some of my homemade herbal recipes. I have been reinventing the brownie for five years. No crack white-sugar. No bleached flour, and no hormone dairy.

Look for my post this week, Week FOUR!

·

Sounds like it's going to be really creative, can't wait to read!

Great contest promoting healthy eats! Great idea/concept.

If I was a participant, my fave healthy dessert would be lowfat blueberry cheesecake using Greek yogurt...so yum! Unfortunately, I bake in 'spells'....so right now, I'd rather just have a slice or two served ;+).

Peace.

·

Well that's mean - teasing us with the idea of such an amazing dessert and then not making a post about how to make it! :p

·
·

Lol...I've never made it! Perhaps, someone has a recipe and will enter it into the contest! ✌!

Nice one...I'm in.

·

Looking forwards to reading your entry!

Can't wait to check out your post! Good luck

Great the challenge of this week and I will see what I can do to eat a healthy healthy dessert.
