4 Healthy & Inexpensive Dishes You Can Whip Up At Home Using Wholegrain Carbs

Healthy Recipes Collage

Carbs often get a negative reputation, especially by the weight conscious due to the notion that overstuffing on carbs often lead to an unwanted belly. True as it may be, consuming the right types of carbs can actually reverse the effect and help you lose weight as well as maintain a healthy lifestyle.

The bad ones, better known as refined carbohydrates, are most commonly found in white bread, white rice, sugary cereals and in many of our favourite local hawker dishes. Besides being bad for your weight, consuming too much of these adulterated ingredients can also raise your risk of heart disease and diabetes.

The good news is that working the ‘right’ carbs into your diet can help prevent these health problems. They come in more natural forms such as whole grain wheat bread, fruits and vegetables. And with many healthier options readily available to us, you can even find healthier, wholegrain substitutes for cookies, wraps, and even pasta.

Sure, it ain’t easy; but baby steps. We substitute our carbs slowly but surely. Here are 4 easy recipes that incorporate wholegrain carbs into our everyday home-cooked dishes. We’ve tried them and hey, they actually taste pretty good!
