Good morning! It’s March 1st! Does it feel like spring yet? I always think that once March rolls around it should be warm. I always forget that most of March is actually still winter. But with January and February gone we are much closer to warmer weather. Spring will be here before we know it. And seed starting is this weekend!
Anyway, I’ve been thinking lately that it would be fun to try a challenge or goal each month. So since today is March 1st, I’m announcing the first challenge:
Read the Ingredients!
No challenges to change what you eat or anything like that. Simply turn the box, can or package over and read the ingredients of what you are eating. Be aware. I think I’ve said before that I think the ingredient list is more important than the nutrition facts.
That’s it! That’s the whole challenge. Just read the ingredients. Try to get into the habit of scanning through the ingredients of different food items. I do this a lot when grocery shopping, especially when I’m trying new things.
As you read through ingredients you may be surprised to discover certain things in your food. Or maybe you are left wondering what the heck some of those things are. Report these discoveries in the comments below! Odd ingredients and surprises, anything that you come up with.
Don’t be afraid to comment! It’s more fun when there are lots of responses. And yeah that was my shameless plug to try to get people to comment. 😀
