Hey, how you doing? Let’s stick to carbohydrates? Only the quality carbs here! Then I’ll show you the 6 best sources of carbohydrates in the entire universe (from my universe, lol). Not only the best sources of carbohydrates, but also the healthiest. After reading, you become more aware of what you eat and can improve the quality of carbohydrates you consume. Come on
We know that the most important macro-nutrients that provide energy to the body are carbohydrates, proteins and lipids. The general recommendation for adults is that about 45% of the calories we eat should come from carbohydrates, 15% protein and 30% fat. Carbohydrates are in the form of sugars, oligosaccharides, starches and fiber.
Our carbohydrate friends are grouped into two categories:
Simple carbohydrates consist mainly of sugars such as table sugar, fruit sugar or corn sugar.
Complex carbohydrates are foods composed of at least three related sugars, such as bran, potatoes, rice, peas and whole grains.
When we eat carbohydrates, they are converted to glucose to be used as a source of energy for cells.
So let’s get started … and then to the list of the best sources of carbohydrates.
PS: I just selected the top for you!
The 6 Best Carbohydrate Sources
1) brown rice
Brown rice is considered an excellent source of carbohydrates and healthy and healthy than white rice because it contains more fiber, vitamins and minerals. One cup of brown rice contains 45 grams of carbs. Contains magnesium, iron, vitamin B, vitamin B2, vitamin B3 and vitamin B6. Also, it can help in lowering bad cholesterol, LDL. This keeps HDL, the good cholesterol, unchanged.
2) Complete noodles (complete noodles)
I’m sure you already know that pasta is high in carbs. One cup of whole spaghetti contains 37 grams of carbs. Whole foods contain more nutrients, better absorption, offer more energy and store less fat than others.
3) Beans (all kinds)
Another very healthy source of carbs! Beans are rich in fiber and help the digestive system. It is a source of carbohydrates that are slowly digested and still contain protein.
4) Sweet Potato
Not only is sweet potato an incredible source of carbohydrates, but it also contains vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamin B6, iron, potassium, copper, manganese and fiber. It is still rich in beta carotene, an antioxidant that is also found in other vegetables.
5) brown bread
Almost everyone eats bread. The problem is that it is usually low quality bread made from refined grains. Brown bread is a much healthier and more nutritious option as it always contains bran and sprouts. It contains more carbohydrates, more fiber and minerals. In addition, it has a low glycemic index, which provides energy for longer. An average slice of whole grain bread is about 12 grams of carbs. Oh, and whole grain bread (which maintains the characteristics of whole grains) can still help prevent cardiovascular disease and increase the body’s metabolism.
6) Green Leafy Vegetables
Some green leafy vegetables are: spinach, kale and broccoli. They are a source of low calorie carbohydrates. Spinach is also one of the foods that helps boost natural testosterone levels.
