Start Here Diet Challenge - Day 8 - Kick Out Simple Carbs
Today's Challenge: [highlight color="eg. yellow, black"]Kick one simple carbohydrate out of your diet today! Swap the white stuff for high fiber, whole-grain options.[/highlight]
Simple carbohydrates, like white sugar, white bread, and white pasta are devoid of fibre. Fibre is that great little ingredient that helps balance blood sugar levels all by limiting how quickly carbohydrates are released into the blood stream after consumption. This is why complex carbohydrates are much better options than their simple counterparts. You'll feel fuller longer, your bowels will be happier & your risk of Type II Diabetes will go WAY down!
Enjoy my easy substitutions listed above!
P.S. Don't be afraid of white foods like cauliflower, parsnips & turnips - these are all good!
