j.pinon.69 I'm being naughty as I'm having carbs tonight... but at least it's "good" carbs!

Filipino dish with chicken and garlic marinated in soy sauce, vinegar and water, brought to the boil, simmered until reduced.

Also made a side dish of courgettes, red onion and mushrooms sautéed in the same sauce as the chicken.
Heaven!!

  •   kimmiefamero I feel like I need more understanding with food everyone kept talking about carbs...x 4h
  •   j.pinon.69 Hi @kimmiefamero ... carbs (short for carbohydrates) are food that give us energy (calories). Examples: Grains, fruits, cereals, pasta, breads, and pastries/cakes. We all need carbs in our diet but choosing to eat the "good" ones is better for our health. Good carbs are low in sugar (white rice is full of sugar). The sugar in carbs turns to fat if the body doesn't "work it off", that's why it's better to only eat it during the day, not at night time. If you eat too late, it's harder for the body to break down the food. So you shouldn't really eat at least two hours before going to bed. I hope that explains it a little bit for you hon 1h
  •   kimmiefamero Hiya, I know carbohydrates lol I was just a lil confused why people are so scared it lol but wow this explains a lot, thanks beaut 1h
  •   j.pinon.69 You're welcome @kimmiefamero ... Carbs might be considered "good" if they provide both energy and other nutritional benefits to your body. For example, many fresh fruits are simple carb that provide important vitamins. Milk is a simple carb that provides calcium and vitamin D. A complex carb (like brown rice, brown pasta) provides energy along with fiber to keep you feeling full so you eat less. White bread, white rice or white pasta provide energy, but you don't benefit from fiber because the whole grain has been taken out. Carbs might be considered "bad" if they provide calories without any other significant nutritional value. For example, chocolates and sweets are simple sugar that can give you a quick burst of energy, but it doesn't provide any other healthy nutrition and it can damage your teeth xx 51min
