Many of us are really “carb shy” these days. Carbohydrates get a really bad rep for being unhealthy. In reality, we need carbs to survive! They provide our bodies with quick energy, and can be paired with lots of vitamins, minerals, and best of all, fiber! Carbs are not the sole cause of unhealthiness or weight gain; we just tend to eat them in excess. Everything in moderation is the key to a healthy diet and lifestyle! 🔑
