Go to nutritiondata.com for more comparisons.
1 serv CARB = 15 grams
Dairy -- 1 cup milk = ~15 g
Fruit -- 2 bites is about 15 grams (small palm-full).
Grains (~ 15 grams)Oatbran 1/3 cup. Oatmeal 1/3 cup. Bread 1 slice or half-slice depending on the density. Rice 1/3 cup. Pasta 1/3 cup. Broccoli 2-3 cups just kidding but infinitely more compared with grains which have an insanely high-carb density as well as genetic propensity to trigger stress, glucocorticoid and the expression of other 'bad' genes. See prior animal pharm FUNGENUT post HERE .
Legumes (~15 grams)1/2 cup beans
