Fruit, popsicles, and rice cakes.
I realize popsicles arent the most nutritionally useful source of carbs, but they manage to fit 25 carbs into a 100 calorie popsicle so they are good on days when you either need a quick carb source and not many calories, or you want dessert and still have a little bit of room in your plan.
Fruit and beans though are very good choices for a well-rounded balanced diet.

I upped my fruits and veggies. Love sweet potatoes put them in the toaster oven or the grill. They taste great when they come off the grill.

Hoffdachhome where do you get rice tortillas?

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

I think fruit is great.

Other ideas: rice of course, and quinoa. I love rice tortillas. Wild rice, millet, etc.

Don't forget that beans are a high carb food, I use canned beans a lot, with salsa, or on a salad. They are high in vitamins and protein too, pretty much the perfect food. And high in fiber.

And there are always the starchy veggies. Sweet potatoes, winter squash, rutebegas. My grocery store sells bags of cut and pre-cooked winter squash that I just throw in the microwave. And I made some great roasted turnips the other day.
