Eat Plenty of Complex Carbohydrates

Myths and Truths About the Power of Carbs

Finding room in your diet for complex carbohydrates can be very easy, because many of us already are eating plenty of carbohydrates. Now it's just a matter of replacing your simple carbohydrates with complex ones. Here are a few complex carbohydrates that can fit snugly into your diet without missing a beat:
  • Bran or shredded wheat cereals
  • 100% whole grain bread
  • Brown rice
  • Sweet potatoes
  • Whole wheat pasta
  • Spinach
  • Bran muffins
Will your baby be benefiting more from that white bread and Lucky Charms than if you included complex carbs in their places? Of course not. We all know it can be hard to give up these things, but just a few substitutions in your diet can make a huge difference and get you rolling toward improved wellbeing and a healthier baby.
