Power to the CARBS!!!

There are SO many October challenges going on and I don’t even know where to start or how many to join!  I find it hard to keep up with more than one thing but there are too many good ones this month so I am going to have to make some serious decisions!  One of the ones I noticed yesterday was The Eat Clean Diet’s CLEAN CARBS Challenge!!  October is going to be focused on choosing Power Carbs.  A challenge promoting carbs?  Count me in!

As a vegetarian, carbs are my saving grace.  I eat them all day and night.  A lot of people give carbs a bad reputation because they associate the word with white bread, cookies, and candy.  What we all need to realize is that good carbs exist!  Fruit and veggies are carbs!  You NEED carbs in you life.  Don’t cut them out, just eat the right ones, okay?

Here is a cute little infographic showing some good vs. bad carbs:

Just like with the Strike Sugar Challenge, there is going to be a Clean Carb prize pack featuring David’s Tea, Sweet Pure Honey, and Oxygen Magazine.  All you need to do is snap photos of ways you’re ditching bad carbs (via Instagram), tag @eatcleandiet, and use the hashtag #cleancarbs.  Read more details here.

I started on the right track this morning with my oats and berries and the rest of the day followed suit!

What is your ultimate favourite carb?

Are you participating in any challenges this month?

    Hi! My name is Julie & I am a carbaholic! Seriously I don’t think I can pick a favorite one. Oatmeal and all kinds of fruits & veggies. Also pasta, which I try to only eat wheat pasta, but still I love it.

    Love this! As a runner carbs are my best friend. But I definitely agree that you gotta eat the good ones. I eat a lot of healthy carbs and they keep me energized and running happy. :):)
