My Daughter is a busy working MOM. I wanted to Spark her, to kick start her involvement with Spark People. So I created this cookbook for that purpose.

I found this recipe on allrecipes.com... I substituted light Miracle Whip for regular mayonnaise, which along with ketchup and other seasonings gave this a nice tangy flavor... Excellent cheap meal! Submitted by KADI1013
We drink tons of Gatorade in the summer time in Texas. It is very important to restore those electrolytes and carbohydrates that your body desires after a good workout. The only problem is, if you regularly enjoy a long workout, or a day doing yard work, name brand sports drinks can get rather expensive.
Here's a sports drink recipe you can make on your own. The composition of this recipe closely matches that of Gatorade and is a good balance of carbohydrates, and electrolyte salts for extended physical activity. Most researchers agree that the optimal concentration of carbohydrates in a sports drink is about 6%. This concentration actually allows the water to be absorbed more quickly in the body than plain water alone. Try different flavors of Kool-Aid envelopes to find the flavor you like best. Our personal favorites are Strawberry-Lemonade and Pink Lemonade. You could possibly substitute Splenda for the sugar, BUT keep in mind that your body is needing the carbohydrates that the sugar provides and you might not get the desired "electrolyte re-balancing" effect that the full recipe provides. (My night-time leg cramps have almost stopped completely since I started drinking this mix.) -8 oz servings
