dessert/fill in your favorite carb here.”
It’s not surprising that we put so much emphasis on carbs in our culture. First of all, they can be very tasty ;) Secondly, they’re filling, and for many of us finding cheap ways to fill the belly is a priority. Thirdly, we have been told for many years to make whole grains the basis of our diet.
In fact, grains are among the hardest foods to digest. Unless they are properly prepared they tear up the gut leading to pain, toxicity, and misery.
And I get that real food seems more expensive at first. But really, if you compare what you are getting in your boxed or frozen food to what you could make yourself for the same amount you might be surprised.
The best news of all is that you don’t have to give up any tastiness at all when you start replacing some of your high carb favorites with lower carb options. My website has many low carb, super yummy recipes, including lots of desserts.
My emphasis is on maximizing taste and feeling satisfied so you don’t miss anything. Truly nourishing your body also does away with cravings.
Am I saying you should go full Atkins? Not at all! Carbs are a necessary and important part of a balanced diet. But balance for most of us means reducing our carb intake quite a bit.
So, if you’re going to have sweet potato fries with your burger, skip the bun. Replace mashed potatoes with mashed cauliflower—really mashed anything is just a vehicle for butter, right? Zucchinis make great spaghetti noodles. Etc. Etc. Etc. This world has so much deliciousness there’s really no need to ever eat the bad stuff.
My suggestion is to start trying a few of these substitutions. See how you feel. My clients have lost weight and gained energy, experienced fewer headaches and tummy aches. One Type 2 diabetic was able to almost completely get off of insulin, and a Type 1 was able to significantly reduce A1C.
