Sandi Cornez's curator insight, January 15, 2015 3:44 PM

Carbs, are you confused yet? There's different health information concerning what are the best carbs to eat. Let's make it easy to understand., Carbs are found in many foods from unrefined veggies, fruit, whole grains, , legumes (beans peas, lentils), nuts, seeds,  to refined processed sugar, breads, flours, pasta, cakes, cookies, popcorn, potato chips, crackers, sodas, candy, sugared cereals,  sugared juices, sugared energy bars and all foods containing sugar, corn syrup, High Fructose corn syrup, fructose, or artificial sweeteners.  Eating foods as close to their natural state as in unrefined carbs is best. These type of carbs are called complex carbs. These are the good carbs your body requires to support tryptophan, an amino acid that boosts brain levels of serotonin, the feel good hormone that helps your brain maintain a better mood during your day. It's the fiber in complex carbs that makes them extremely beneficial for your body and you. The fiber in complex carbs slows the the rate at which these foods enter your bloodstream, supporting a steady supply of tryptophan and more stable levels of serotonin. Simple  carbs as in refined meaning the beneficial fiber has been stripped out, don't work this way and make conditions worse. Simple carbs require more insulin which puts excess glucose into your blood stream causing mood swings and inflammation/free radical damage which causes disease.

 

Health Tip:  If you're just beginning to eat healthier, make some smart choices to swap out unhealthy simple carbs for healthier complex carbs. Try to eat the same amount of carbs each day to keep your blood sugar on an even keel. Put more veggies on your plate, providing yourself with more nutrients and essential fiber. Have some healthy fat such as avocado, olive, coconut,  or walnut,  and sesame oil. Nut butter without added sugar is great on healthy crackers, on fruit, on homemade G.F. healthy breads. Here's some of the best sources for feel better complex carbs: all veggies, fresh or frozen, fruits, fresh or frozen, eat more veggies and less fruits; legumes, sweet potatoes, winter squash ,oats, ,and  nuts,.

 

Here's a great info graphic to use as "A guide to Good & Bad Carbs" from Greenliving by Diana Herrington.
