Whole fresh veggies come to my mind. Remember corn isn't really a veggie, it's a grain and is high in sugar. I say avoid it if you want to lower blood sugar, and lose weight. Yes, beans, nuts, fruits (WHOLE FRUITS NOT FRUIT JUICE) are also good sources of complex carbs. Grains have them too but grains also can raise blood sugar as do fruits. Use very moderately according to your own body's response.
Eat chard, kale, collard greens!! Asparagus, broccoli, cabbage!! (to name a few great sources of complex carbs as WELL as intense nutrients)
Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it's a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they're terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul
I'm sure there's a "detailed list" out there somewhere - but I generally think of the words "whole grains" and "beans". Since I am gluten intollerant, my complex carbs consist mostly of... brown rice quinoa beans of all kinds (red, black, navy, pinto, garbanzos, ...) sweet potatos/yams Some might also consider corn (fresh) a complex carb.
Hope that helps!
