5 WAYS TO CLEAN UP YOUR CARBS
Many people think cutting out carbohydrates is the answer to losing weight. The truth is that you need carbohydrate for energy and to stay focused! The key is to cut out the processed, sugary carbs and focus on more whole grains and high fiber options. Oats are one of the most angelic carbohydrates there are. High in fiber and protein, oats can be used anytime of day to help you feel full faster and stay full longer!
1. OLD FASHIONED OATMEAL
With cold mornings amidst us, warm foods sooth our tummies. Old fashioned oatmeal garnished with chia seeds, coconut or berries can be a great way to warm up your morning. Pair with protein like eggs or Greek yogurt for a complete breakfast!
2. OVERNIGHT OATS
Many people are on-the-go in the morning and wish they could grab and go. Overnight oats allow you to prep the night before with your favorite fixings, sit and soak, then nourish on the go in the morning. Check out this Fueled Up Bites blog post to see a quick tasty recipe for Overnight Oats!
3. TOASTED OATS
Instead of using store-bought granola, try toasting oats in the oven and then using them to sprinkle in your Greek yogurt parfait or atop a salad for some fibrous crunch!
4. USE OAT FLOUR
Who doesn’t love pancakes or other baked goodies? Oat flour is a great sub for ordinary flour. Higher in fiber, oat flour can help you enjoy a normally “sugary” food in a more “wholesome” way.
5. COAT WITH OATS
Crusted chicken and fish are very popular. Usually toasted in bread crumbs or nuts, oats add fiber to your protein. Pair the oat-crusted protein with some roasted veggies for a lean, mean, clean dinner!
