Heathy alternatives for most common carbs consumed

Carbs are bad for you” is a misconception people make when they hear the word carbs but I’m here to tell you they are your best friend!!👯‍♀️ Here are a few healthy alternatives for the most common carbs we eat🥖🫓.

Why are carbs important?!:
- Carbohydrates are the primary source of fuel for your body. They are what allow you to perform well in your daily activities and also in your workouts. They do this by providing energy to all the systems of your body such as your circulatory system (heart, blood), central nervous system( brain,nerves) and muscular system.
The types of carbs you are consuming is what matters:
Simple carbs: 🍞🥪
- Are highly refined carbs that do not provide much nutrients for the body which cause us to digest them quickly, therefore, causes us to feel unsatisfied. P.s ever wondered why you still feel hungry after eating a whole box of cookies? 🍪This is why.
Complex carbs: 🌾🍠
- Come from whole food sources like vegetables, fruits, legumes, and whole grains that provide more nutrients(vitamins and minerals) which cause us to digested slowly & keeps us satisfied.
- Are high in fiber which helps keep your GI (gastric intestinal) track healthy.
