A Pendleton, Oregon company says if you've got a great low calorie dish that contains mustard, it will dish out $1000.00 for your recipe.

Barhyte Specialty Foods and its signature Saucy Mama brand is searching for inspiring, health-conscious recipes with the “Skinny Mama – Cooking with Mustard” Contest.

Mustard is pretty healthy!  The company's news release says it packs just 10 calories in each teaspoon.

Food bloggers throughout the United States are encouraged to apply to participate in the Skinny Mama contest. 

The Oregon company says original recipes must be creative, flavorful, and meet guidelines for at least one nationally recognized diet plan.  According to U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Diets 2012”, the best diets overall in the U.S. include:

  • DASH Diet
  • Volumetrics Diet
  • TLC Diet
  • Jenny Craig Diet
  • Mayo Clinic Diet
  • Biggest Loser Diet
  • Mediterranean Diet
  • Ornish Diet
  • Weight Watchers Diet
  • Vegetarian Diet

More information and complete contest rules can be found on the company's website
