"A healthy dose of motivation with a twist"
What's on your plate starts way before you ever make it to the kitchen. It all begins at the grocery store, when you start loading up that cart with the wobbly wheel that couldn't turn a corner if it tried. But, you just deal with it because you are so hungry and only have one thing on your mind - food! This is where things really start to fall apart because you are shopping on an empty stomach, which usually means everything looks delicious including the box. By the time you fill your cart, it's full of bags and boxes that are loaded with preservatives, artificial this and superficial that, and chemicals to die for, literally!
Never go grocery shopping on an empty stomach, it's hard to think straight when you are shopping hungry. Make sure what you put in your cart is healthy and nutritious. Plenty of fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Some of the healthiest foods you could put in your cart and on your plate don't have an ingredient list, they don't need one because they are whole foods with nothing added or taken away.
