I’m 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 you’re 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: http://www.sparkpeopl e.com/mypage_public_jour nal_individual.asp?blog_ id=3824099

Tracking for me has been the secret to succesful weight loss. No guessing at ounces or tsp or etc. I measure every single item before I eat or drink it. Every single item, every single time. That keeps me mindful of portion sizes, helps me to make sure I am balancing my diet with appr. amounts of carbs, proteins and fats. Each are vital to losing weight but in the right proportions.
