I know that all of our bodies work on different diets and routines, but I believe that the majority of us do try to avoid the dreaded carb. Honesty is the best policy here, especially when it comes to health, so let me come clean first. My knowledge of carb-laden foods is pretty much limited to pasta or bread and when I found out about these others, I wanted to share!
This is not a post telling you to avoid carbs, because I love my wheat bread, but here are a few food items that have carbs (that I didn't even know about)!
Cola: Soda can contain a lot of carbs, which your body then processes into sugar. It has been recommended to drink sparkling water instead! My step-grandpa recently began decreasing his sugar intake massively since his recent diagnosis of diabetes. Couldn't believe it when carbs showed up on Diet Pepsi--but I guess I've also never checked the label, as I'm not a big soda drinker.
Jelly Beans: I'm not a big candy fiend, but I do love jelly beans! When I was a kid I overloaded on those Harry Potter every flavor beans way too much.
Apples: They contain about 17-22 grams of carbs. My favorite types are Golden or Honeycrisp.
I know that it would be hard to go no carb--and that is also nothing I'd ever do but I find this to be an interesting topic. To those with a nutrition or health background, feel free to educate me on carbs!
