I [Heart] Carbs

Or the reason why I'll always have bread in my kitchen

So, unless you haven't picked up a ladymag in the past year, you know that juicing is this big deal right now. I think juicing can be a positive thing to give your body a break and a quick hit of vitamins and minerals, but I believe fruits and veggies have fiber for a reason. Most juices -- even the green ones -- have a ton of antioxidants but don't have enough fiber to balance out the sugar rush.

Cutting to the chase: I am super down with fiber and carbs. The no-carb/low-carb lifestyle isn't for me. Complex carbs are necessary for your body and a healthy digestive system gives you energy. Not only do I love making smoothies, I'm not afraid of bread. I love to have a grainy piece of toast in the morning with some egg whites, or a hot bowl of oatmeal with berries.

Here are some more dishes I love that are heavy on "good" carbs:

- Whole grain pasta with pesto
- Quinoa with sautéed vegetables
- Wheatberries over a green salad with sliced fruit and vinaigrette
- Stir fry with buckwheat soba noodles
