Hi lovelies, after I aired this video. about MACRONUTRIENTS, some of you reached out asking me, "what are refined carbohydrates?"
Refined means that the food is not in its state as we might find it in the nature.
An applesauce, for example, or fruit juices are a good example of processed foods.
However, when we talk of REFINED GRAINS, and in this particular case WHEAT since it's the most processed, we are talking of food that has almost been depleted all its nutrients.
In the image below, you can see the whole grain vs processed grain.
So when I mentioned processed carbohydrates, this is what I want you to have in mind, when you are purchasing your food.
REFINED grains and products or food made from these grains are referred to as empty carbohydrates. Because they only give you carbohydrates without any nutrients. They are the ones that spike your blood sugar.
Make good healthy choices and keep smiling.
Have a beautiful day then. I love you
