I know what you’re thinking…. “Can we STOP going bunless yet??”

Bread, cereal, rice and pasta have been getting a seriously bad rap ever since Atkins, and even more so since the whole world decided to jump on the Paleo bandwagon. So many of us went on a carb strike over the past few years, with those ever popular fad diets telling us carbs were evil.

But what’s the deal now? Are carbs still the enemy?

Here’s the verdict: Carbs STILL ain’t that great.

But things have changed a bit and thankfully you don’t have to (and shouldn’t) cut them out 100%. I’m all about eliminating sugary carbs and gluten filled grains, but we really do need SOME carbs in our diets.

Carbohydrates give us energy, help us build muscle and actually decrease cravings. But you have to choose your carb carefully. They are most definitely not all created equally.

Although I’m eating FEWER carbs in general, I am also super careful about which ones I chose to nourish my body with. I’m all about balance and definitely will indulge in a slice of bread or a dessert once in a while, but most days I’m chasing down these healthy carbs:

Veggies – broccoli, asparagus, brussels spouts, spinach, green beans, zucchini, leafy greens, sweet potatoes and white potatoes

Fruit – stick to fresh berries which are lower in sugar like blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, raspberries

Shakeology – my FAVORITE healthy carb! Contrary to popular belief, Shakeology is actually not a protein shake. It’s a premium superfood shake that does have protein but it’s actually FULL of healthy carbs because it is made from real wholesome, naturally carb loaded ingredients from around the world. Shakeology maximizes weight loss, increases energy and lowers sugar cravings. Plus it is so delicious!

So there you have it. Atkins and Paleo have it partially right. Carbs aren’t the enemy, but in my “Skinny Opinion”, yes, you should still go bunless. 😉

What are YOUR favorite healthy carbs?
