Your body requires a certain amount of carbohydrates to function optimally each day. Unfortunately, most of the nutrition is stripped from carbohydrates such as rice and other whole grains when they’re refined or processed into ‘white’ grains and flours. Eating refined carbohydrates can leave you feeling tired and lethargic as they quickly spike your blood sugar levels, and see your energy levels crash shortly after. Consuming whole grains and plenty of vegetable sources of carbohydrates ensure you’re getting way more nutrients into your meals, without the major energy slump! We’ve sourced 7 delicious, nutrient-rich ways for you to swap out refined carbs and bump up the goodness of your favourite dish!
  1. Try lettuce cups instead of white flour tortillas
Skip the flour tortilla for crisp and hydrating lettuce cups! Use fresh large leaves for wraps or taco shells, filling them with your favourite ingredients.
  1. Try cauliflower pizza bases instead of white flour pizza bases
Sneak some extra veggies into this household favourite by making the pizza base out of cauliflower!
  1. Try zucchini spaghetti instead of regular spaghetti
White pasta is a thing of the past! Its an easy and delicious substitution for white pasta. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OMXqDyltA88
  1. Try sweet potato fries instead of French fries
Deliciously satisfying, swap regular French fries for sweet potato fries to boost your intake of vitamin A and fiber.
  1. Try portobello mushroom “buns” instead of burger buns
Most burgers are usually more bun than filling! Change it up by with tasty Portobello mushroom buns. Simply brush two mushroom caps with a little olive oil, place on some aluminum foil and roast in the oven (400 F) for 20 minutes, flipping halfway through. Remove the stems once cooled slightly and add your fillings. Easy!
  1. Try quinoa instead of white rice
Quinoa is packed with plant-based protein, fibre and essential minerals. Serve as a tasty side dish, or make it the star in a delicious Italian salad!
  1. Try almond meal bread instead of refined white wheat bread
Fill up with healthy fats, fibre and protein by using almond meal as a base to homemade bread, instead of regular white flour. Once you’ve tried it, you’ll never go back! For more healthy swap ideas, check out the BodyRock Meal Plan! Source: Food Matters
