Here's Dr. Amen's list of healthy carbs for your brain in the 6th step series. This is the middle part of his list of 24 healthy foods you should incorporate each week into your diet.
Complex Carbohydrates 9. Berries -- especially blueberries (brain berries), raspberries, strawberries, blackberries 10. Oranges, lemons, limes, grapefruit 11. Cherries 12. Peaches, plums 13. Broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts 14. Oats, whole wheat, wheat germ -- oatmeal needs to be the long cooking kind as instant has a higher glycemic index since the manufacturer has broken down the fiber to speed cooking time and basically make it a refined carbohydrate. Same goes for bread, look for at least 3 grams of fiber. Remember unbleached wheat flour is white flour, it must say whole wheat. 15. Red or yellow peppers (much higher in Vitamin C than green peppers) 16. Pumpkin squash 17. Spinach -- works wonderfully as a salad, or a cooked vegetable, adds fiber and nutrients 18. Tomatoes 19. Yams ** Beans (also listed under proteins)
