What foods are your go to for CARBS??

Just like the title says... I believe I don't intake enough carbs. So, what foods do you cook, steam, bake, or sautee quickly to get some carbs in you?
Thanks!

Re: What foods are your go to for CARBS??

All veggies will have small amounts of carbs in them, but if youre going Paleo most people end up supplementing with bananas and sweet potatos or squash to get their carbs high enough. Unless youre cool with eating like 23 cups of brocolli a day it will be really hard to get it from strictly veggies, especially if you are looking to maintain weight or bulk up. If youre ok with straying from Paleo then adding 1/2 cup of rice to a meal will help or some oats mixed into a protein shake is a good way also.

Oatmeal. With peanut butter. It has become a staple in my diet.

Oatmeal with sweet potatos mixed into it, along with a little pb. Delicious.

Potatoes

White rice

Bananas

Plantains

Sprouted buckwheat waffles - These are the bomb. They freeze great so I make a huge batch once a month or so and pull them out as needed.
