I am enjoying your posts on food, nutrition and carbs!! I got so interested, I looked up carbs in all vegetables.
I compiled a list of Leafy Vegetables, Fruits - the part of a plant that contains a seed or seeds is the fruit of a plant, such as Avacados, and roots and seeds. I found the carb and fiber count on a lot of them.
I have it jotted down and will type it up for everyone and post it ! It was so interesting and informative to me!!
You can have plenty of bamboo shoots (low carb) (3.9 grams of carbs, 2.2 grams of fiber, subtract fiber from carbs = 1.7 net carbs in 1/2 cup), but water chestnuts (high carb) (4 whole raw water chestnuts sliced = 8.6 grams of carbs, 1.1 grams of fiber = 7.5 net carbs in 1/2 cup).
I thought sugar snap peas and snow peas might be a no no, because they taste sweet, but they are actually low carb and good for us!!
I think the list will be helpful!
Thank you again Joe for the wonderful knowledge your sharing with us!!!!

Well done Joe....
"I want to thank you again for these well rounded posts that inform and remind us food fundamentals." Many will gain from them.
Anything we do to be of service to others glorifies God and also "heals." Stay the course...you are already succeeding.
