5 carbs to include in your meal plan!

Not all carbs are equal! Try incorporating some of these carbs into your meal to get energy and nutrients to support your training. 💪💪

1. Blueberries: They get their color from being rich in anthocyanins which are linked to improved cognitive function.

Blueberries for your health!

 

2. Beets: These are a great source of nitrates-- the dietary nitrates from beets may enhance your blood vessel function.

We LOVE beets here at TFW Portland!

 

3. Sweet potatoes: The orange color means they’re rich in brain and eye boosting beta-carotene.

Sweet potatoes for energy... and beta-carotene!

4. Dark chocolate: The flavanoids in dark chocolate may improve heart health and boost brain performance. And it tastes good. 

A treat that is good for you (in moderation!)

5. Purple sweet potatoes: Like blueberries, these are another good source of anthocyanins, which have been linked to colon cancer prevention in rodent studies.
