18 Dec NUTRITION FOR “1”…for you, by you!
I love blogging. You can talk about anything, anyone, any situation as long as you stay within the confines of your category, stay informative and interesting, making sure your audience gets it! Single folks…this one’s for you!
This week I’ve decided to dedicate this blog to 3 of my most fabulous single friends. They don’t cook, they rarely eat at home and when they do it’s usually delivery. To be honest, they are all nutritional nightmares! No names – they know very well who they are, I just merely want to point out to other singles that there is help, it’s around the corner, and we call it the KITCHEN.
What’s your excuse? I’ve asked over and over again. The reply is always the same. “I’m single, “it’s only me eating”, “it would be a waste to make food and not have anyone to share it with and throw it out”. I may sound a bit harsh, but the singles of the world that I know need to start taking care of themselves! I want them to enjoy cooking for “one” because you never know when they will become “two”. I want them to enjoy a plate filled with love, energy, healthy food at less than half the price of what they spend on eating out. Most importantly, I want them to take the time to care for themselves! So – STOP BEING LAZY SINGLE PEOPLE!
On an early Sunday morning, dress up in your best workout wear and head out to your local store or market…and don’t forget the list!
