When choosing any type of carbohydrates, don't forget to incorporate healthy preparation techniques. By themselves, carbohydrate-rich foods don't have to be "calorie bombs." Much of the problem can stem from the high-fat toppings you load on carbohydrate foods. Butter on your bread? Cheese sauce on your rice or pasta? An innocent 3 oz. baked potato is less than 100 calories, but it can be transformed into a 300-calorie monster when smothered in butter and sour cream. Instead, try topping off your carbs with our high protein low-fat Vegetarian Sloppy Joe.
