Carbohydrate rich foods are wonderful sources of fiber, energy and micronutrients.
We should get at least 10g of fiber per 1,000 calories we eat. Keeping these high fiber low calorie carbohydrate food sources on hand will make your meals more filling and satiating.
Next are my top 5 carbohydrate sources and portions that are also high in fiber.
- Apples– 200g 115 calories 5g fiber
- Rolled Oats-40g 155 calories 4g fiber
- Canned Beans-130g 120 calories 4g fiber
- Frozen Berries-200g 110 calories 8g fiber
- Broccoli-200g 80 calories 5g fiber
Carbohydrate rich foods should not be confused with ultra processed highly palatable foods such as ice cream, cake, candy, cookies, chips, etc…
These foods often contain just as much fat as they do carbohydrates. They are usually low in fiber and protein and should be enjoyed in moderation.
