5 Guilt-Free Carbs You Can Actually Eat

Carbs and Guilt-Free in the same sentence? It's not too good to be true! Here are our 5 favorite carbs that you can eat guilt-free! Before you eat: try some BikiniBOD for a truly guilt-free meal. 

1. Veggies, Veggies, Veggies

Vegetables are a great, healthy source of carbohydrates that you can eat unlimited quantities of! Spice them up and get creative (vegetables take on the flavor of whatever you cook them with). Some of our favorites are: cucumbers, asparagus, cauliflower, and carrots. Download our May nutrition plan by clicking the image below.

2. You Guessed It...Fruits!

Fruits are another guilt-free source of carbohydrates. However, not all fruits are created equal. Opt for lower-sugar fruit choices like: apples, grapefruit, apricots and strawberries. (BikiniBOD Tip: eat whole fruits rather than drinking fruit juice. Eating the skin is a great source of dietary fiber).

3. Whole Grains

Grains are a great addition to meals to help keep you full throughout the day. Try brown rice, quinoa, faro, oatmeal, and wild rice as an addition to meals. These digest slower, helping to minimize spikes in blood sugar. 

4. Beans, Beans 

Beans are an amazing source of carbs, protein, AND fiber. For all our vegetarians out there: beans are a very nourishing addition. Try chili recipes, a macrobiotic bowl, or a veggie burger to incorporate more beans!

5. Air-popped Popcorn

Popcorn can either be one of the healthiest snacks or one of the most unhealthiest, depending on how you make it! Try making your popcorn at home on the stove using whole-grain kernels, some avocado oil, sea salt, and black pepper. At only 35-40 calories a cup, you can't go wrong!

PS- Be on the lookout for our newest product (coming soon), you're going to LOVE it!
