    Favorite Uncommon Carb?


    So, I couldn't think of a better thread title. Basically we all know about pasta, oatmeal, bread, cereal, potatoes, etc and these are probably pretty common among us. However, are there any carb sources that are more uncommon than these or not talked about as much that you enjoy?

    Personally, I LOVE some bulgar that is left in the fridge overnight with some apple cider vinegar. Wheat berries also make my list. What are some carb sources you eat that is not talked about frequently?

    I have an addiction to adding pumpkin to anything I need more carbs or fiber in. Have a stash of puree I add to shakes, add it to yogurt or oatmeal along with cinnamon and nutmeg, spread it on toast with pumpkin pie spice sometimes, great source of vitamin a and fiber.

    I also love peas, when I want them on the go I have canned, unsalted ones I will devour. 27 g carbs, 12 g protein, again good amount of fiber.

    It is an acquired taste but man I love them i eat buckwheat pancakes everyday. I forgot what was so great about buckwheat but I remember its better than wheat. Good fiber and 7 grams of protein per 1/4 cup is nice too.

    I agree on these, as they're better nutritional options to their popular older brothers (wheat/rice) I'm also a fan of oat bran. Packs way more nutrients/protein/fiber than good ol' fashion oats.

    I'm going to try lentils soon. I have a package, but I usually stick to canned beans. Quiona is pretty good. I lie the taste, but hate the texture which is why I don't have it often.

    I absolutely love chickpeas, I can't get enough of them.

    Tried lentils the other day, they are different to say the least. I have to experiment with them.

    Quinoa hands down. Black beans, sweet potatoes and Ezekiel bread too. Google "cookingquinoa" and subscribe to her daily recipe email. i've gotten some excellent recipes for quinoa that way.

    - black and pinto beans to get you lean. they have 19g of fiber per one cup serving
    - edamame will make you stronger. they are rich in magnesium, potassium and calcium. also high in iron
    - kidney and red beans will help you recover faster. they have more muscle mending and immune boosting antioxidants than any other good. They also have a perfect ratio of carbs to protein.

    Tried the chickpeas last night with just salt and pepper. Not bad. Think I needed to cook 'em longer, some of 'em still were a bit squishy, but the crunchy ones were really good. They'd be awesome with Ranch flavoring

    Hmmm... Maybe try upping the temp to 420 or keep em in longer, ovens can vary. You know I also forget to mention that i put a little bit of olive oil on the cookie sheet and roll the chick peas around in it a little to help the seasoning stick, sorry forgot thats kinda important and may also be why they didn't crisp up enough. Sorry I completely forgot about that (facepalm). Never even thought about ranch flavoring but good idea lol. I actually haven't made the chick peas in a few so I may have to buy a few cans try some other seasonings.
