Q: I am pregnant and am trying to eat healthy. I was told to eat complex carbohydrates.

Can you tell me some examples of foods that are complex carbohydrates or an easy way to spot them?


A: Basically complex carbohydrates are those carbohydrates which have a low GI and take longer for the body to break down into glucose (for energy).
