It’s time for the monthly nutrition challenge … here’s the concept, in case it’s your first one:
For a week out of every month, we’ll announce a nutrition ‘challenge’. Over the next six months, we’ll touch on a ‘pilar’ of good eating for a week out of every month … and if you take every challenge, after six months, you’ll have build a foundation of healthy eating.
Here are the last two month’s challenges in case you missed them:
And for this month:
Limit your intake of refined carbohydrate to one serving per day
- The definition of refined carbohydrate, from about.com: “Refined carbohydrates are produced when whole plants which are high in carbohydrates are processed in a way to strip out everything but the highly digestible carbohydrate (starch or sugar).”
- Refined carbohydrates include: Anything we call “sugar” including granulated sugar and high fructose corn syrup; grains that have been made “white” by stripping the germ and/or bran from the grain, including white flour, white rice, white pasta, and couscous; anything called “starch” – corn starch, modified food starch, etc.’; grains that have been turned into flakes, puffs, shreds, etc.
