Play • 24 min

There are good carbs and bad carbs. Do you know the difference?  It’s time for a carbohydrate revival! Join me in this episode as I break down the scientific research behind carbohydrates. You’ll learn why you shouldn’t be afraid of good carbs if they are the right carbs, how to avoid blood sugar spikes from eating carbohydrates, and the best ways to incorporate healthy carbs into your diet. We will also dive into the history of processed foods and the diseases they are responsible for. 

Most importantly, you’ll walk away with actionable steps you can take to move away from a diet filled with processed foods and towards a diet filled with glorious, nourishing whole foods.

“When I grocery shop and look into the carts of my fellow shoppers, I rarely find any real, whole, glorious foods and it truly breaks my heart. God did not design us to eat this way and our bodies were never made to handle this much processed carbs.” - Katrina


Good Carbs Aren’t the Enemy

Carbohydrates give us energy and lots of nutrients when eaten in the right forms and the right amounts! You don’t have to clear out your entire pantry and fill it with every whole grain on the market, but you can make small changes and substitutions to gradually improve your and your family’s health.

 Let go of excess weight, ditch disease, and start experiencing the life God has given you with the most energy and vitality you’ve ever had!
