Add Carbohydrates to Energize
There are two main types of carbohydrates—sugars, such as those found in milk and fruits; and starches, which can be found in grains, breads, and pasta.
When choosing fruits, for the best nutritional value: 1
- Reach for whole or cut fruits rather than juices for the added benefits of dietary fiber.
- Select fruits with more potassium, such as bananas, dried apricots, and raisins. 2
- When choosing canned fruits, select fruit canned in 100% fruit juice or water rather than syrup.
- Remember to vary your fruits, as each offers different nutrient content.
Whole grains provide many nutrients and health benefits. Remember, at least half of the grains you eat should come from whole grain foods. Follow these tips: 3
- Make easy switches with the grains you regularly eat, such as trying whole wheat bread instead of white bread, or brown rice instead of white rice.
- Try whole grain versions of your favorite recipes, such as whole wheat pasta in your macaroni and cheese.
- Build your own trail mix as a snack by combining whole grain cereals such as toasted-oat cereal with dried fruits and unsalted nuts.
