Too many carbs we eat today are the kind that raise blood sugar too high too fast-muffins, cookies, white bread, white flour, potatoes and white rice.
Skip the dinner rolls when I eat out. If I have a sandwich at lunch, toast with eggs in the morning, this is all the bread I need.
No to the tortilla and change to a lettuce leaf wrap.
Mash cauliflower instead of potatoes, drizzle lightly with olive oil, salt/pepper.
Bake carrot fries in the oven.
Change potato salad with coleslaw- cabbage is low in calories and high in fiber.
Cut my pasta in half and bulk it up with peppers, mushrooms, other veggies.
If I feel a carb craving coming on I drink a glass of water and wait 15 minutes. If I can not live without it, put a small serving on plate and then get out of the kitchen…
Anyone have some more tips for me?
