Food sources of healthy carbs include whole grain pasta, yams and quinoas of the world. Unhealthy carbs cause fat accumulation in several regions of a body. Now, it’s time for another form of carbs – unlimited carbs that are found in vegetables. Cauliflower, broccoli, zucchini, lettuce and lettuce are the vegetables loaded with vitamins and minerals, fiber and phytonutrients.
