Low-carb diets such as the ketogenic diet often require an extreme cut in carbohydrates.
For that reason, most people tend to completely remove all grains from their low-carb diet.
Or maybe you’re not on a carbohydrate-restrictive diet but you just need to cut some carbs. And that comes at the expense of grains.
However, I’ve got good news for you!
You don’t need to cut grains to optimize your carb intake.
That’s right. Some grains have a carbohydrate content low enough to be added into any diet, even carbohydrate-restrictive ones, in low to moderate quantities.
And here are the best healthy low-carb grains for you:
Millet has roughly 40 grams of carbohydrates per 100 grams when cooked.
Although commonly known as bird food, buckwheat is most certainly not bird-only.
It is a highly-fibrous food with a medium glycemic index rich in micronutrients like magnesium, manganese, and iron.
Despite its many variants, rest assured, every species is full of healthy nutrients and fiber.
