List of Carbohydrate Foods - Make friends with Carbs
Take our List of Carbohydrate Foods - print it out, learn what IS and IS NOT a carbohydrate, use it to make great eating habits. Hey, carbs are actually our friends.
Did you know that your brain ONLY uses carbs? The USDA recommends that we get 45-65% of our daily energy from foods with carbohydrates.
A great way to gauge if a carbohydrate is "good" or "bad" is how long it takes to digest. If it takes a long (slow) time, that's good! Visit our Low Glycemic Food List page and see a carbohydrate chart that will teach you which carbs are slow (good) and fast (bad) . . .
