About the chicken in a bowl with melon and paksoi recipe
This chicken in a bowl with melon and paksoi is simple, fast, tasty and healthy. In short, this healthy meal fits extremely well with Supersnel Gezond. Thanks to my wife, she has come up with it. Now I know from experience that as a rule they are popular dishes when she has made them up, so I am curious what you think of this recipe.
The recipe, among other things, also belongs in the category: low carbohydrate. However, there is melon in it. There is sugar in it, so how can it be low in carbohydrates? Actually very simple. Low carbohydrate does not mean free from carbohydrates. That is not necessary at all. Carbohydrates are the source of energy for every cell in your body.
Why does everyone always call that carbohydrates are bad? Also simple actually. Carbohydrates is a collective name. There is a lot of difference to make. For example, sugar is a carbohydrate, but then a refined carbohydrate. There are no more nutrients, only sugar. There, for example, in the form of soft drinks and sweets, too much is consumed. That is certainly unhealthy.
However, you still have a form of refined carbohydrates that are eaten frequently. Just think of white / brown bread, white pasta, white rice, etc. These refined carbohydrates contain much less nutrients compared to their unrefined varieties, or the whole-wheat variety. It is not recommended to consume refined carbohydrates. It is therefore advisable, when you eat bread, pasta or rice, to opt for the whole-wheat variety.
The conclusion is simple. Carbohydrates are not the enemy, the refined carbohydrates are the enemy. It is best to eat it once, in moderation, but it is much better to opt for the unrefined variant.
There are not that many unrefined carbohydrates in this salad anyway , when you add the number of carbohydrates. That is why you can still call the salad low in carbohydrates.
