    Wellness Challenge - Avoid 3 White Refined Carbs



    For the upcoming weekly challenge, we are challenging the participants to "avoid three white refined carbs." They are highly processed foods and are stripped of minerals, nutrients, and fibers. When looking at our daily Jain meal, we tend to use a lot of these white refined carbs. So this week, we challenge you to make healthy Jain meals with no white rice, no white flour, and no white sugar. If you are interested in learning more and participating, click here.
