Food For Thought Friday: Carbohydrates, Good or Bad?

In the last few years there has been some confusion created around carbohydrates. Several fad diets have been created telling us to kick the “carbs” but in actuality our bodies depend on carbohydrates to make the energy (or fuel) we need for body system support and energy. So “carbs” are actually very important to our health. With this being said, there are carbohydrates we need to avoid. Simple Carbohydrates are high in sugar and low in fiber, they can create an unhealthy glucose balance and unnecessary fat storage. Complex Carbohydrates are unrefined and filled with fiber. These keep our glucose levels in check and provide the energy we need when eaten properly. Educate yourself on the differences, read food labels, and know what you are putting into your body. Here are a couple of articles that give good examples and explanations of carbohydrates.
