The body needs starchy (also known as complex) carbs to convert into glucose energy. They include potatoes, yams, cereals and grains such as wheat, oats, rye, and rice, plus foods made from them, such as bread, pasta, and couscous.
Wholegrains are best as they contains all the goodness,including fiber. We should eat at least five portions a day, or a third of the food we eat.
Sugars (glucose and fructose in fruit, vegetables, and honey; lactose in milk; and sucrose. which is table sugar) are simple carbohydrates. They provide fast but not sustained energy. Avoid adding table sugar, which has no useful nutrients.
Plums are stone-fruits, meaning their flesh is formed around a stone-like pit. They can be found in most supermarkets, groceries, and some fruit stands as fresh, canned, dried, or even juice products. Their sweet and slightly sour taste makes them a very popular addition to yogurt, oatmeal, salads, and many more – but as rich as they are in flavor, they are also a good source of anti-oxidants, vitamins and minerals. Here are 6 science-supported reasons why plums are a superb health food.

t’s fall, the weather is getting cooler, and the time is right for steaming, soothing cups of tea. But as you sip on your favorite brew, you may be unwittingly ingesting billions of microplastics, according to a new study in Environmental Science & Technology.
Many commercial teas are packaged in paper bags, but some premium brands have shifted to plastic pouches that have a silky quality, according to Emily Chung of the CBC. Nathalie Tufenkji, a professor of chemical engineering at McGill University in Montreal and co-author of the new study, recently found one of these bags inside a hot cup of tea that she had ordered from a coffee shop. She was not happy about it.
“I said, ‘Oh God, I’m sure if it’s plastic it’s, like, breaking down into the tea,'” Tufenkji recalls in an interview with Chung.

The Seattle attorney has represented victims of foodborne illness for 25 years — people who came close to death just by eating a hamburger.

“If I had a rule that I follow, it’s that I eat things that are well-cooked or that are cold, because bacteria tend to not do well at hot temperatures and tend to not grow at cold temperatures,” Marler told TODAY.
“There’s just some good common sense when you’re not controlling the food you consume.”

Archaeologists are discovering that two of the world’s most prized flavors have a much richer history than we first thought
Of all the great debates—Coke versus Pepsi, boxers versus briefs, shaken versus stirred—few have been more polarizing than chocolate versus vanilla. Those of us aligned with chocolate—the product of ground, roasted cacao beans—find it warm, comforting, ambrosial, and generally dismiss all things unchocolate as “vanilla,” meaning bland and boring. Those who prefer vanilla, a climbing orchid that bears long podlike fruit, praise its aromatic sweetness and note that it enhances the flavor of chocolate, which unembellished would be dull and kind of flat—in short, vanilla.
This is a seriously brilliant tutorial that could save you a serious amount of money – whether you are broke or not.
One of the biggest bills that a family has to cover is the grocery bill. It’s thousands of dollars per year – and many are of the belief that if you want to eat healthy food, you need to spend twice as much. This is absolutely not true!
