Root Vegetables: Solution of Healthy Carbohydrate Choice

Hi friends of SlimGourmet! Besides fat, people start to worry and avoid carbohydrate, especially if they are into weight loss program or doing certain medical diet. May people do not want to eat carbohydrate due to their fear in its effect on gaining weight and increasing blood sugar. However, should we really avoid carbohydrate in our menu?

Generally, carbohydrate is needed in our body as main energy source, but the amount of carbohydrate should be adjusted with daily energy requirement. The easy way to determine the amount of carbohydrate is weighing its portion to 60-65% per meal or eating carbohydrate as much as 1/3 portion of our plate. The other thing that should be concerned is choosing the right carbohydrate type. For people who want to lose weight and maintain blood sugar, we suggest to eat carbohydrate food source such as brown rice, oatmeal, and roots vegetable. Roots vegetables are one of alternative food source carbohydrate that have low or moderate glycemic index, therefore it slowly increase your blood sugar level and suppress hunger much longer. Roots vegetable like yam, sweet potato, cassava, and taro can be cooked in many ways such as roasted, steamed, and boiled.
