Although some people go on no-carb or low-carb diets, not all carbs are unhealthy. A lot of the time carbs are found in foods that are processed and high in sugar, but some foods contain healthy, complete carbs. Complete carbs provide long-lasting energy, enhance your performance, provide fiber and support healthy digestion, as well as bringing many other nutrients to the table. Here are some healthy carbs to add to your daily diet.

Quinoa

Quinoa is a very healthy high-carb grain that is high in protein as well. It is a gluten-free pseudocereal that contains vitamins and minerals such as iron, magnesium, phosphorous, calcium, vitamin b6, and zinc.

Oats are very fibrous and help lower LDL cholesterol. They also provide protein, iron, magnesium, vitamin b6, folate, and riboflavin.

Buckwheat is heart-healthy, good for blood sugar stabilizing, and is high in protein, fiber, and antioxidants


Barley

Pearled barley contains 39g of carbohydrates and 8g of dietary fiber. This grain also contains iron and some calcium and helps keep you full throughout the day.


Beans

Beanslike kidney beans, black beans, and garbanzo beans are very high in healthy carbs. Beans are beneficial for heart health, protein, and fiber. This also includes lentils, which are a part of the legume family as well.
