So let’s dive into this awesome weight loss hack:
Replace your bad carbs with healthier carbs by choosing the most enjoyable healthy carbs.
Bad carbs are basically any carbohydrate-rich foods that spike your blood sugar like crazy! That’s white refined bread, white potatoes, white rice.
While these bad carbs make you gain weight and unhealthy, there are some good carbs that taste even better when prepared and cooked right and are better for you.
Did you know some sources of good carbs actually have weight loss effects?
And which carbs are those, you might ask.
We have you covered.
Here are 10 amazing sources of healthful carbohydrates to eat instead of the bad carbs:
If you don’t already consume barley, you should really try it out. Barley is fiber-rich, low in calories and mostly made up of complex carbohydrates. You can make barley water, soup or barley porridge, and enjoy any time of day – guilt-free.
Plain Greek yogurt
Greek yogurt contains probiotics, is low in sugar and high in protein, especially if you consume the right type of yogurt. Beware of the sweetened yogurt that would be loaded with sugar and other additives.
When purchasing Greek yogurt, simply look for the no sugar added plain version. We love Chobani yogurt for this purpose.
The great thing about Greek yogurt is that it’s quite versatile. Add it to your berry smoothie for a creamy texture, or top it with your favorite granola for breakfast.
Do you have a sweet tooth that gets you in trouble with your waistline? I know I do. That’s why sweet potatoes are the best remedy – really.
Sweet potatoes are high in antioxidants giving you a good dose of beta-carotene and are also anti-inflammatory. These vibrant purple or orange potatoes are great for regulating your blood sugar too since they digest slowly.
Feel free to enjoy an array of sweet potato recipes, including sweet potato pizza, crispy fries, mashed sweet potatoes and roasted and drizzled with olive oil. You can even make sweet potato desserts and pancakes!
Legumes such as bean, chickpeas, and lentils are the better kind of carbs to eat so that you feel full for longer. They help reduce unhealthy mid-afternoon or late night snacks since these legumes are high in dietary fiber and protein.
You can enjoy chickpeas by cooking them and seasoning with salt and pepper. You might also make soup using lentils and beans, or have a healthy version of your favorite Mexican dish.
Whole-wheat bread and pasta
If you are craving bread, have a small slice of whole wheat bread with a smear of all natural 100% almond or 100% peanut butter. Drizzle honey or add sliced banana to add sweetness.
The trick is to use less brown rice and more of whatever topping you’re eating your rice with. Since brown rice tends to be a bit bulkier, you will want to saturate it in enough liquid (healthy-version curry, stew, soup).
Okay, so you know green veggies are the ultimate nutrition and weight loss powerhouse, right? Leafy greens like kale and spinach, and cruciferous vegetables like broccoli and cauliflower (not quite green) are packed full of nutrients but extremely low in carbs.
But not everyone enjoys eating kale or spinach. So if you fall into that group, I encourage you to be creative! Try spinach in your smoothie (add a little banana to sweeten it if you like), or try packing as many veggies when making your soup and casseroles. A spinach omelet and sweet potato hash go nicely together.
Besides losing weight, these superfoods help you feel and look better by:
- Improving heart health
