Slow Carbs Win! (Just Like the Tortoise)

Slow Carbs Win! (Just Like the Tortoise) 150 150 Voci Health

Remember The Tortoise and the Hare…the famous race won by the slow but steady tortoise over the fast hare that stopped to rest?

Well think of Slow Carbs as the Tortoise…slow and sustained energy that will help you win your race of a day. While Fast Carbs (think simple carbs and sugar) might give you a boost but are typically followed by a crash.

So go ahead and add carbs that give you slow burning energy to your meals every day. Slow Carbs are good! Some great ones include:

  • Sweet potatoes
  • Oats
  • Nuts
  • Cauliflower
  • Quinoa

And while you’re at it, eat them slowly. You’ll satisfy your appetite better and enhance the sustained energy release benefits.
