Complex Carbs

edited February 2011 in New to Raw

What about them? are there any in the Raw menu and if not then why don't we need em?

  • Sprouts are supposedly rich in complex carbs (perhaps sprouted grains and sprouted lentils have more than other types of sprouts - not sure about this). Also, it seems soaked garbanzos for hummus would likely be rich in complex carbs as well.

    Other sources are goji berries, noni, aloe vera, and possibly medicinal mushrooms and sea veggies. Here's are article by David Wolfe:

    Does anyone else know of other sources? :)

  • I'm not sure, but I have heard a dietitian say complex carbs are not essential for optimal nutrition. Maybe sprouted whole grains?

    Good luck!
