{Food For Thought Tuesday: Carbs}

It's no secret - I am completely addicted to french fries, or any food that derives from a potato. If I have a side choice on the menu between fries, salad, or fruit - hands down, never fails, I'm going to pick the fries. BUT I am working to minimize my intake because most carbs (bread, pasta, potatoes, corn) have minimal nutritional value and are quickly converted by your body into sugar. So you may as well eat a cupcake. Instead, try sprouted grain bread, which is a lot easier on your digestion and is packed full of nutrients (and it's actually pretty good). Don't forget that there are healthy carbs (fruits, veggies, whole grains, quinoa, beans, and sweet potatoes) and you should try and pack your diet full of these items on daily basis. This picture below shows how bad carbs affects your body, brain, and most importantly your waistline: check it out - definitely something to think about.carbs carbs 2 Just a little food for thought...
