I practically live off of brown rice, but also oatmeal, brown rice pasta, sweet potatoes, some white potatoes, all bran. That's about it.

fiber type cereal, oatmeal, pasta, wheat bread, and my staple food in life, a must have...white rice! yeah i know its not good compared to brown rice health wise but i have to. Brown rice sucks and im from Hawaii people here eat sticky white rice with anything.

all-bran, oatmeal, brown rice, whole wheate bagels, Barilla-Plus (whoel wheat pasta with added flax and alot of protein), fiberouse veggies, whole wheat wraps/breads from Whole Foods or Trader Joes (trader joes in NYC if Im lucky as none around here), probably missing some but thats the bread (no pun intended) and butter of my carb sources

Whole Wheat bread, oats, salad, all sorts of green veggies. Pretty soon I am going to try whole wheat pasta and see if its any good.

Tastes awesome. It is a long grain white and has a lower GI than most brown rice. I get mine at Trader Joe's.Originally Posted by pistonpump

does that mean beer is a good carb haha some beer is made from barley right?

Oats for breakfast
WW bread or bagel at meal 2
Barilla Plus pasta, brown rice, or just another ww bagel for PWO meal if I'm lazy.
I add a piece of fruit in there somewhere. Bananas and prunes are the easiest to deal with.
About 100g of carbs/day from skim milk.
I add some canned kidney beans, black beans, or pork&beans if I need more.
I usually like to have a large tupperware container full of either precooked rice or pasta in the fridge (or both).
Put either healthy italian dressing, pasta sauce, or cream of mushroom soup on the pasta. Put either soy sauce or bbq sauce on the rice. Nice quick meals.
Also the occasional ww low fat tortilla.

Check out the "flat out" lite brand wraps--the macros are amazing. I'd post em now but it's late and I'm lazy. Tons of dietary fiber though. And the taste is good, too.

I'll definately second the Barilla Plus pasta...it can't be beat for a great complex carb/protein/good fat source. if you ever want to jazz it up a bit, use a Thai peanut sauce w/ it instead of the standard tomato sauce. It gives it rich flavor, more good fats and a whole new twist so it doesn't get boring.
About the Basmati rice, it's east Indian and it's white rice but it's aromatic so it smells really good and it's something different. A lot of times they'll have it at Indian restaurants w/ peas and bits of carrot thrown in. Pretty nice stuff for a little change up. Indian food is awesome and pretty healthy, btw.

i found a basmati blend at my grocery store it has carrots wildrice and a bunch of other dried veggies but i cant eat it without some kind of sauce like makrel or sardines with tomato sauce is good. or i throw in a cup of white rice....what can i say i love white rice! does anyone know if jasmine rice is low GI?
