Last week I posted a mini video about simple carbohydrates.
There tends to be some negativity surrounding simple carbohydrates, but I want to clarify that there are some simple carbohydrate foods that are a more healthy choice than others.
Of course, one of my favorites, FRUITS!
Yes, fruits contain simple carbohydrates, but they also provide us with lots of vitamins, minerals and dietary fiber!
Other good choices of simple carbohydrates are dairy products (non-fat/low fat milk, cheese, and yogurt) and fresh, local honey!
Foods containing simple carbohydrates that should be limited in our diet include; sweets, cake, sugary fruit juices and sugary sodas. These foods are high in calories, but provide us with very little nutrients.
Just be aware of what you are putting into your body, and make the healthier choice!
