There’s been a lot of buzz around this. If I’m speaking honestly, I kind of expected it; who doesn’t like pasta?!
If this were even 6 months ago you wouldn’t see me eating pasta on a weekday. I deemed it as a “cheat meal.”
High in carbohydrates.
High in calories.
Two things I would avoid Monday-Friday.
This may come as a big surprise to some, but my relationship with food and nutrition has become so much healthier over the past couple months we’ve been vegan.
I was stuck in the diet circle constantly cutting carbs. Good & bad. Why is an apple avoided by so many because they consider it to have too many carbohydrates; it’s an apple! 🍎)
I learned pretty early on if you’re eating plant-based whole foods 🌱 there’s no need to calorie count.
I eat when I’m hungry. Stop when I’m full. I don’t feel stuffed at the end of a meal. I don’t feel like napping after lunch. I actually am naturally eating less, even though most people are scared of never getting full off of a vegan or plant-based diet.
Many fad diets work to loose weight but are they working for your overall health?
One thing I was shocked by most after switching my diet was realizing I haven’t consumed any cholesterol.
Not even 1 milligram.
This lead me to research exactly what foods carry cholesterol.
I learned that cholesterol is only something you can get from eating animal bi-products.
Top 10 food with the highest levels of cholesterol:
🔸Dairy products (Cheese, yogurt, milk, butter)
🔸Organ meats (kidney, livers, hearts)
🔸Fried foods (burgers, mozzarella sticks, French fries)
🔸Processed meats (hotdogs, sandwich meat, sausages)
🔸Baked goods (added butter, eggs, sugar along with simple carbohydrates)
Did you know that our bodies are capable of producing all of the “good” cholesterol our bodies need?
There’s no reason why we should be consuming cholesterol and it’s affects are only negative on our body.
