Clif bars. Multi-grain breads and muffins. Wasa fiber rye crispbread(it's a cracker, put some cheese on it) Bran cereal. Granola bars that aren't packed in sugar. Peanuts. Natural, no sugar-added peanut butter. Honey. A peanut butter and honey sandwich on multi-grain bread. Fresh fruit or canned with no sugar added. Peas and beans. Plain yogurt.
Note: don't overcook your pasta or it'll break down the complex carbs into simple ones. Keep it al denté.
Protein and fiber with your carbs will slow their uptake, lessen a spike in your glucose levels.
