Refined flour and sugar are substances that were never meant to be in the body!!
A refined carbohydrate is a carbohydrate that has been altered by machinery to increase its shelf-life. The refinement process transforms a complex carbohydrate into a simple carbohydrate by removing the original natural elements such as fiber, healthy oils, vitamins, and minerals. Basically it”s nutritionally deadly!
Coconut and Almond flour is a great replacement to a refined flour. They are both high in fiber and healthy fats. The high levels of healthy saturated fats are easily used by the body for energy and help support a healthy metabolism. Studies show that coconut and almonds have the ability to help lower “bad” LDL cholesterol levels.
