The sweet potato. I know that you know this was going to be my number one. If you have seen anything I have done, then you know that I consume the sweet potato every single day because I just can’t get enough of them and all of their amazing benefits.

Like sweet potatoes, quinoa also has a low glycemic index. Plus it is ideal for improving metabolic health by reducing blood sugar, insulin, and triglyceride levels [7, 8].

3. White Rice

White rice is an excellent choice for a healthy carb because it is naturally gluten-free and easily digestible. When it comes to my top three carbs, rice is my third choice because you cannot beat the benefits of sweet potatoes and quinoa. Eating rice is an excellent source of energy because it is a rich carbohydrate while also being low in sodium and fat.

While rice is a safe carb, there is a lot of controversy on whether white or brown rice is healthier for you.
