2. Whole Grains
Don’t listen to those anti-carbohydrate fad diets. Complex carbs such as the whole grains you find in oatmeal, whole-wheat bread, and brown rice are must have for maintaining healthy blood sugar levels, and fighting that mid-day tired and moody feeling. Why? Because whole grains are digested more slowly, keeping your blood sugar and energy levels stable, and helping you feel satiated longer so you avoid sweets and empty carbs.
