There is a bad wrap about carbs in today's society.
Although we need carbs for energy it is definitely easy to go overboard!

Do you know what foods have carbs in them?
Each carb option has approx 12-15 grams of carbohydrate per serving.

1- Milk and yogurt
2- Fruit
3- Grains
4- Starchy Veggies (corn, peas, potatoes)
5- Sweets (cakes, cookies, etc..)
6- Alcohol

When dishing up your plate, use this modified IDAHO PLATE METHOD

1/2 plate non startchy veggies
1/4 plate lean protein (4-6oz)
1/4 plate carbohydrate (serving of fruit, grain, or milk/yogurt)
