Smart Carb (1)     
Smart carb consumption helps to fuel your body and brain. When we make our food selections, remember to eat whole foods, not processed. For example, eat a piece of fruit instead of drinking fruit juice. Also, combine macronutrients in a meal (fat, protein, carbs) when possible. Finally, keep in mind that smart carbs provide a great source of fiber which helps us get rid of unwanted waste from our bodies.

Carbs, such as whole grains, fruit, veggies and legumes helps to:

• Energize us

• Deliver vitamins and minerals

• Provide fiber for fullness and regularity

• Improve gut health

• Help cognitive function

As we plan our meals, it is important to think about smart carbs such as fruits and veggies which are our main source of energy. On the other hand, we should avoid processed foods to have a healthy diet.
