Pasta. Pizza. Mashed potatoes. Anything with garlic bread. These are a few of many people's favorite guilty pleasures. Carbs! Carbs! Carbs! When we want them, we just gotta have them. But, maybe there's a way we can indulge less in the simple kinds we hate to love, and more in the high-carb foods that are actually good for us. What's that you ask? There are HIGH-CARB options that are super healthy? Yes, so prepare to re-think your cravings and include these three tasty types into your diet. And hey, who knows, maybe you'll never want a piece of pizza again... kidding! Sweet Potatoes: A rich source of antioxidants, which counteract free radicals that can damage your body's cells that can cause several diseases, sweet potatoes are a rich source of vitamin A, vitamin C and potassium. When they're cooked, they contain approximately 18–21 percent carbs, consisting of starch, sugar and fiber. Chickpeas: Hummus lovers listen up. Chickpeas, also known as garbanzo beans, are a rich source of a variety of  vitamins and minerals, like iron, phosphorus and B-vitamins. When cooked,  chickpeas contain 27.4 percent carbs, with 8 percent being fiber. These beans have also been thought to prevent cancer and aid in digestive health. Blueberries: Often referred to as a superfood, this delicious fruit consists of mostly water, aiding in your hydration, and contains about 14.5 percent carbs. Not only have they been linked to improving memory in older people, but they also contain vitamin C, vitamin K and manganese in high amounts.
