10 Worst Foods and Drinks You Should Stop Consuming Right Now (+Alternatives)
Pasta is a great way of getting extra carbs into your diet. However, refined pasta is high in calories, low in fiber, and offers fewer nutrients than other healthier versions. Also, even if you choose a healthy product, too many carbs can mess up your metabolism.
Alternatives: Two words: edamame spaghetti. Just one serving can give you 24 grams of protein and 30% of your daily iron requirements and you can combine it with your favorite sauces, just like regular pasta!
I’m not saying that every type of ice cream is unhealthy – but our favorite ones sure are. Most types of ice creams contain between 12-24 grams of added sugar and that’s just in a ½ cup serving! Now if your freezer is loaded with such desserts, you’re probably in for plenty of sugar rushes.
Alternatives: If chia seeds aren’t part of your cuisine yet, it’s definitely time to start using them. This superfood is so, so easy to turn into a delicious pudding and it provides you with plenty of fiber, calcium and protein. Just let the seeds soak into your favorite type of milk for at least 2 hours and that’s it!
