People in the blue zone continents never count calories, weigh food grams, or read labels. It all starts with food selection. The residents have ready access to fruits and veggies and other healthy practices. The following are their carbs options;

Oats

Oats contain prebiotic fiber for fueling the body’s probiotics- the good bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract. According to research, beta-glucan in oats is a soluble fiber for reducing cholesterol, thus lowering the risk of chronic diseases.
