Carbs are high. But it all looks so good
Jean, thank you for your comment! The Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend that carbohydrates make up 45-65% of your total energy intake. This amount would be about 180-230 grams of carbs per day for women and 220-330 grams for men. The carbohydrates in this recipe come from brown rice and vegetables that are high in fiber.
