Carbohydrates: Complex vs Simple - shadowandy - my life stories
I pretty much grew up with carbohydrates (or carbs) being the base of my meals - rice with meats and vegetables as sides, noodles with other ingredients as sides, etc. I enjoy my coffee with brown sugar and having coconut pancakes (mee chiang kueh) once in a while. I know I should have my macronutrients (fat, protein, carbohydrate) in the correct proportion but it didn't occur to me that they can be further branched into the 'better' and 'bad' category. For example, saturated versus trans fat, complex versus simple carbohydrate, etc. So lets just look at carbohydrates.
