GOOD CARBS VS BAD CARBS ⁠
Carbohydrates are an important energy source especially during pregnancy. Carbohydrates are important for your baby’s neurological development as well as their overall health. ⁠
But which carbs should we be eating? ⁠
There are 2️⃣ kinds of carbohydrates:⁠
Simple and Complex.⁠
⬇️⬇️⁠
SIMPLE carbohydrates are those which provide a FAST source of energy. Examples of foods containing simple carbohydrates are fruit, white bread, potato chips and milk based products.⁠
The problem with simple carbohydrates is that although they provide energy quickly, this energy does not last very long and you will soon find yourself hungry and lethargic not long after eating them. ⁠Simple carb foods are usually high in fats and/or sugar so be careful to not make simple carbs a big part of your diet. ⁠
⁠.⁠
COMPLEX carbohydrates digest slowly and release energy at a much slower rate 🐌.⁠
Examples of foods containing COMPLEX carbohydrates include:⁠
- Whole grains,⁠
- Rice (go for a low GI rice such as Basmati)⁠
- Oats⁠
- Quinoa⁠
- Broccoli, asparagus, spinach and mushrooms.⁠
.⁠
Complex carbohydrates are a MUCH better option as they keep you feeling full for longer which means you will be less tempted to make UNHEALTHY food choices 👌.⁠

Finding time to exercise when you have kids is HARD. But just remember that any movement is better than no movement! ⁠
Humans are not designed to sit around all day. If you get up and move, your brain will function better, your mood will improve and your physical health will also benefit.⁠
If you make exercise a real priority in your life, you will be surprised all the time you can find in your day to exercise. ⁠
Some suggestions:⁠
-Walk instead of drive whenever possible⁠
-Take the stairs instead of the lift⁠
-Youtube workouts for exercising at home⁠
-Play outside with the kids⁠
-Turn the music on and have a dance party with the kids ⁠
-Get the baby in the pram and go for a walk ⁠
You can do it!! 👊⁠
