Understanding Carbs

(upbeat music) – When we think about eating
healthy some people think of carbs as a dirty word and
won’t eat them at all. But it’s a little bit
more involved than that. So today I am with Stephanie
from Food Wonderful. Stephanie, let’s first
talk about what exactly is a carb? – So carbohydrate food is
any food that is digested and becomes sugar. Carbohydrates are one of
three macro nutrients, so along with protein and
fat, carbohydrates provide the calories in our diet. Simple carbohydrates are
foods that have shorter chain sugars so they’re
digested very quickly, they get into our
bloodstream right away. Complex carbohydrates
have a longer chain sugar so they take a little bit
longer to digest and they usually give us more steady
energy throughout the day. – So Stephanie, a lot
of foods have carbs, but they’re not all the same. – That’s right. So our complex carbohydrates
like beans, whole grains, those foods are very nutritious,
they provide us fiber, B vitamins so we want
to eat those foods. And even our simple
carbohydrates like fruit have a lot of good nutrition,
so those are worthwhile to eat, as well. The foods that we want to
limit or eat more in moderation are those very sugary
foods, cookies, soda. – So really it’s not about
cutting carbohydrates out of your diet, it’s about
choosing the right ones. – That’s exactly right,
carbohydrates are an essential part of our diet. So when we start to replace
some of our less nutritious carbohydrate foods with some
of these great complex carbs, we find that we’ll
have more energy, we’ll have more nutrients,
and we’ll feel better through the day. – So today you’ve got a
great example of a recipe that we’re gonna cook that
is good carbohydrates. – That’s exactly right,
we’re making a vegan recipe which is a chick pea
sweet potato curry. – Mmm, yummy. (upbeat music) – Alright here’s our
ingredients for our curry. We have lots of great
sources of complex carbs. We have our sweet
potatoes, our chick peas, and our green peas. These foods will provide
carbohydrates and protein, too. – I love it, let’s make it. – First we’re gonna
add our onions. We’re gonna let these
saute for about 10 minutes. Add in our jalapeno
chile, garlic. We have some curry
power, some gara marsala, some paprika. Pour in our coconut milk. Our tomatoes. Basically as soon as
those spices are fragrant, the curry is ready to go. – I can’t wait to try it,
but I think the biggest take away is to not cut
carbs out of your diet completely, but choose the
best carbs for your body. – That’s exactly right. Food like this is gonna
keep us full and satisfied and give us great energy
for the entire day. – I love that, thank you so
much, I can’t wait to dig in. For Stephanie’s recipe or more

    How are carbs essential if your body can
    A) survive without any carbs
    B) make its own glucose without dietary carbs?

    Perhaps swap the word essential with tasty 😉

    That’s literally Indian food wtf

  3. Truth sayer Posted on April 24, 2019 at 3:10 pm

    Recipe was VERY basic and rushed. I have no idea of the amounts used, or the time and heat needed to cook it.

  4. ANJALI PATIL Posted on May 2, 2019 at 9:44 am

    Indian vegetarian food 😊

    Hmmmm…Eat those “great complex carbs” are a no no if you want to lose weight. Chickpeas, sweat potatoes, green peas, etc WILL keep you fat. Eat 100% raw, low glycemic veggies and the lbs. fall off.

    I just wish they could have kissed just a little bit on each others punanny

  7. Gene Lariv Posted on June 3, 2019 at 10:12 pm

    I like the carbs but the carbs don't like me. lol

    Carbs are not essential. The history of humanity has more or less gone without carbohydrates. Unless you were lucky enough to live in a climate that produced some. Therefore carbohydrates are not necessary but we're prehistorically there to fatten up man before the Winter months. If you want to make your diet and weight much more simple, cut way back on the carbohydrates or just eat them seasonally like we used to. I do agree with you that not all carbohydrates are created equal and it is important to choose wisely when eating them.👍

    I have been taking this fat loss plan “Yamzοkο Weebly” (Google it) for a couple of weeks at this point and so far I really like them! I still have the power I want without curbing my desire for foods without making me feel jittery. I have not changed anything else I am doing and also have lost 7 lbs. .
