Just the Tip Tuesday—

More about Carbs —

The healthiest sources of carbohydrates—unprocessed or minimally processed whole grains, vegetables, fruits and beans—promote good health by delivering vitamins, minerals, fiber, and a host of important phytonutrients.

Sweet potatoes are so good , like carrots, this starchy veggie is high in fiber. It’s also loaded with other nutrients like potassium, calcium, and vitamin C. Slice it thin and bake it under the broiler with a light brushing of olive oil for a side dish or snack that combines chew, crunch, and delicious flavor. Try it as a healthy substitute for french fries.

Broccoli is high in fiber and a good source of carbs if made properly. Try baking it to crisp it up and eat it like chips! 

We love Beets, if you want to cut your cook time, don’t cook your beets whole as many recipes suggest. Peel them and slice them into eight pieces. Lay them flat on a cookie sheet and bake at 425 degrees for around 20 minutes. Once they’re done, you can throw them into a salad with some arugula, pecans, and low-fat feta cheese.

Carbs are the main fuel source for our bodies. Low carb high protein works well for weight loss but carbs will fuel your growth too!
