Good Carbs

Potatoes - Potatoes are full of vitamin C, potassium, and resistant starch.
Beans
- They're loaded with fiber, protein, and resistant starch.
Pasta
- Yes—pasta! It has resistant starch, too. Try noodles made with chickpea flour for a fiber bonus.
Strawberries
- They've got lots of vitamin C, fiber, folate, and potassium. Full of natural sugars, these berries are sure to satisfy your sweet tooth.  
Beets - Scrumptious when roasted, peeled, and drizzled with olive oil and vinegar, they have healthy doses of iron, folic acid, and fiber.  
Artichoke hearts - Add them to a salad or an omelet for a rich taste and a fiber boost.
Quinoa
- Sub high-protein quinoa for rice or pasta in salads and soups. Try Village Harvest Rice Frozen Quinoa ($7.99; SuperTarget stores).
