Someone asked me about some of the foods I eat regularly and when I mentioned baby carrots they then asked: “But don’t carrots have a lot of sugar?”
Compared to some other vegetables like cucumbers then yes, carrots do contain more sugar (i.e. carbs).
That mindset is like missing the forest for the trees.
It’s easy to get bogged down in the whole macro-tracking approach with the thought of minimizing sugar or carbs.
But if the result is missing out on some great vitamins, minerals, fiber, and other benefits of eating whole, unprocessed foods like fruits and vegetables then something is missing for sure.
