If you look for adding healthy carbohydrates to your diet, consider these smart tips:
- Start your day with whole grains. You may eat hot cereal, like steel cut or old-fashioned oats, but not instant oatmeal.
- What is the clue to finding the best type of bread? In case you have no idea how to find whole-grain bread, use one smart tip. Select bread that contains stone ground whole wheat as the FIRST component.
- Choose something new. Whole grains can be found in different products and so you can add those products to vary your daily ration. For example, you may add quinoa, bulgar, kamut, chickpeas, or beans.
- Consume fruit. For example, a simple orange has two times as much fiber and half as much sugar as a 12-ounce glass of orange juice. Therefore, the whole fruit is much better than its juice.
I also would like to include a guide from the Harvard School of Public Health on how much sugar various drinks contain.
