    Looking for Ways To Swap Out Refined Carbs - This Could Be Useful !

    " 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."

    Here are some "delicious, nutrient-rich ways for you to swap out refined carbs and bump up the goodness of your favorite dish!"

    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 favorite ingredients.

    Try cauliflower pizza bases instead of white flour pizza bases

    Sneak some extra veggies into this household favorite by making the pizza base out of cauliflower!

    Try zucchini / courgette spaghetti instead of regular spaghetti

    A fun alternative to regular spaghetti. Enjoy hot or cold. See how to make the zucchini / courgette noodles, by using a julienne slicer.

    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 aluminium 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!

    Try almond flour/meal bread instead of refined white wheat bread

    Fill up with healthy fats, fibre and protein by using almond flour/meal as a base to homemade bread. Once you've tried it, you’ll never go back!
