With the marathon coming up in 4 days (eek!) lately there have been lots of carbs happening around here. But unlike past marathons, I’m no longer stuffing my face with bagels, pasta, and pretzels. I realized that those foods don’t make me feel as good so I’ve switched to other sources of carbs such as potatoes, bananas, and squash. Here are some of the foods I’ve been eating lately!
Potatoes- Mostly sweet potatoes but also white and baby red. I don’t think I could ever get sick of potatoes but it was kind of embarrassing how many I bought at the grocery store last week.
Bananas and plantains- I fried a plantain over the weekend and used in for breakfasts throughout the week. I also eat at least one banana every morning. I have a bag of frozen bananas that I use in smoothies as well.
Squash- Butternut and spaghetti are my go-tos. I brought butternut squash to Thanksgiving last weekend and it was a big hit! And Spaghetti squash is one of my favorite options to roast over the weekend and use in meals during the week.
Fruit and dried fruit- I eat a lot of apples and pears throughout the week. I’ve also been snacking on raisins, but as I complained about last week they make my fingers sticky🙂
Paleo baked treats- Instead of turning to sugary cookies and snacks when I need a treat, I usually have something made thats baked with ingredients like almond flour, honey, and coconut oil to eat. These aren’t necessarily high in carbs, but I eat them as a better alternative to sugary snacks.
What are some of your favorite carbs?
