Morgellons -

Hello Everyone,

I recently did some research on low-carb foods. I was very surprised at some of the information, so thought I would share it with all of you.

***All Numbers below based on 1 cup of veges for leafy veges, stems and flowers. Fruits, roots, and seeds based on 1/2 cup.

LEAFY VEGES: Fiber subtracted from carb count, these veges below have 3 net carbs or less (some have 0) - 1 CUP

Lettuce, endive, escarole, radicchio, romaine, spinach, mustard greens, collard greens, kale, bok choy (Chinese cabbage).
Parsley, cilantro, basil, rosemary, thyme

STEMS & FLOWERS: Fiber subtracted from carbs, 3 net carbs or less - 1 CUP

Bamboo shoots, celery, seaweed, cabbage, asparagus, fennel-less than onions, cauliflower, and broccoli. Brussel sprouts - 4.7 and artichoke hearts - around 6, however, excellent health benefits make these two qualify on the low-carb list.

FRUITS: The part of the plant that contains seeds is the fruit of a plant. BASED ON 1/2 CUP. Fiber subtracted from carbs, 3 net carbs or less except for bell peppers.

Okra, cucumbers, green beans, wax beans, eggplant, 1 med.tomatillo, snow peas, sugar snap peas, 1 Roma size tomato, yellow summer squash, zucchini. Bell peppers have 3 to 5 carbs based on size and color in 1/2 cup.

ROOTS AND SEEDS: Fibers subtracted from carbs, 3 net carbs or less. BASED ON 1/2 CUP except for white, yellow, or red onions.

Radishes, green onions, jicama, rutabagas, turnips. Red, white, yellow onions have 4/5 carbs per 1/2 cup. Green onions are much better with 1.5 carbs per half cup.


Leeks, water chestnuts, beets, potatoes, carrots, winter squash, acorn, butternut, parsnips, green peas, sweet potatoes, corn, plantains.


Strawberries 2g net carbs
Raspberries 2g net carbs
Blueberries 17 net carbs

Hope this helps, I frequently look at this list before ordering groceries.

Love & Hugs,
