Carb Cycling & Eating Right

This is a plan that I have come up with from studying different theories for carb cycling and sample menus. I have always run into troubles with plans and eating right because I have to be gluten and dairy free. There are so many plans out there, but none really take into account us intolerant souls.

Some rules to keep in mind:

carbs from grains will disrupt your blood sugar levels and give you a crash mid morning if having for breakfast. low carb days can still intake carbs, just keep carbs to clean foods and to a minimum on low days. high carb days can be made of all clean carbs. of course, no junk carbs.

Happy mindful eating!
