This Sparked Me!

Im a fan of creating rhyming phrases to help remember important things. Hence the title: Single ingredients over expedience. I hope it helps you remember this healthy tip when youre eating out, shopping, and preparing a meal.

It's so tempting to cut corners with an expedient meal at a fast food drive-thru or pick up pre-made mixes to make a quick meal at home. But, if you care about your health and your weight and your fitness, you have to take ownership back of what goes in your body.

Best way to take ownership, fully understand what you are eating, & have more control over what goes in your body? Single Ingredients. Reduce things down to fewer ingredients until you know what you are getting. Read at:

    I like that phrase - take ownership of what goes in your body. So often I've acted like I have no control over that, but I don't remember any time where someone sat on me and forced food down my throat! It's all me and I have to keep that in mind.
