Whole-grain sources of carbohydrates provide fiber and B vitamins (which your body needs in order to use food for energy). So when you’re looking for a healthy carb source, why not choose quinoa, which also packs a protein punch? Quinoa, a pseudocereal, is one of the few vegetarian complete proteins, meaning it has all the essential amino acids humans need. Skip the sugary, processed breakfast cereals and opt for quinoa with skim milk, blueberries, walnuts and a little maple syrup, perhaps.
