Carbs are not the enemy!


Carbs are not the enemy! Whole food, nutritious carbs are packed with vitamins, minerals and are often a great source of fiber đź’«

Refined carbs like chips, white bread or candy cause your glucose to spike faster and won’t leave you feeling as full & satisfied as the unrefined carbs. So while you’d want to save your refined carbs for an occasional treat, having carbs like fruit, sweet potato, etc on a daily basis can leave you feeling energized & fueled for you activity. Details on some of my favorite carbs below:

1 cup watermelon, diced = 46 cals, 0g fat, 11g carbs 0.6g fiber, 0.9g protein (92% water)
