So you must be thinking is it healthy to cut out carbs? Discover why you should never cut out carbohydrates based food from your lifestyle and daily meals
How? By varying them and eating them in moderation. Whole wheat bread and rice, brown pasta, quinoa, you will never get bored with the variety of slow carbs recipes that are delicious and very easy to prepare every day! Just remember to consume them in moderation without over indulging.
Let your creativity go wild by experimenting a lot of cereals and grains dishes. Of course you shouldn’t be eating a whole plate of chicken and pasta with béchamel bake right before going to sleep. But there’s no reason why you shouldn’t allow yourself a small portion of tasty carbs with your lunch or dinner. Invent your very own vegetable risottos, enhance your rice flavor with different herbs and spices, and explore the possibilities of other grains such as couscous, brown orzo pasta, red quinoa or gluten free pastry! These days, the variety is almost endless.
And if you fancy some carbs for breakfast, why not treat yourself to some delicious multi-cereal bread, to a bowl of oatmeal with fresh fruits and milk, or to a bowl of rice pudding?
Cooking tip: Don’t forget that the lower a food’s glycemic index (GI), the better it is for your health. Make toast part of your daily diet, and eat your pasta al dente like for example when preparing pasta Al’Arabiatta in So Intensive Enamel !
