Bring on the grains! Minimally processed whole grains are complex carbs, unlike their processed counterpart white flour. Since whole grains retain all parts of the seed, including the bran and germ, they are high in fiber and vitamins, such as vitamin B, and minerals, including iron and magnesium.
The fiber offered by whole grains helps keep you feeling full and helps prevents blood sugar spikes and crashes, which helps keep your energy levels even.
- quinoa (yeah, it's technically a seed, but we like to use it like a grain)
- brown rice
- bulgur (aka cracked wheat)
