i'm reading conflicting stuff elsewhere.
specifically want to know if corn and peas are included.
peas are not include and are actually a legume. Corn is a grain so obviously not included
Hearts of Palm
Snow Pea Pods
Can we sticky this.. we used to have one.
olives, yay! That's a nice surprise!
i'd better edit that... olives are fibrous but also have fats. Also note deleted avocado, also hi in fiber but also contain fats.. sorry no go there.
oh, that was cruel. :sadcry:
did seem a little too good to be true. I imagine avocado should come off, too.
see my edit below.. already did.
olives and avocado are both fruits
as are tomatoes
yep! my post really had no relevant info, just felt like saying :lol3:
Sorry to bump this, but I have questions. There are a few veggies from the original 2: list that are not on this list, and I'm wondering if they are ok.
Turnips - 1 c cooked cubes = 35 cal, 8 carbs, 3 fiber
Spaghetti Squash - 1 c cooked = 42 cal, 10 carbs, 2 fiber
And tomatoes are not on the other list, but they are on this list. Are tomatoes ok?
Tomato - 6.5 oz (3" raw tomato) = 33 cal, 7 carbs, 2 fiber
Tomato is counted more like a fruit. Turnips are starchy but spaghetti squash is fibrous.
Why is that? I'm not trying to be snarky at all, I'm just looking for the explanation. Turnips seem to have almost the same amount of carbs and fiber as spaghetti squash.
it has a higher sugar content
Good post because I've been eating peas.
How about beets??
I see beet greens on the list, but not the beet itself.
I think beets have too much sugar. :sadface:
No. Not considered a fibrous vegetable.
Sometimes I wish I would quit asking and just eat blindly. :lol:
I think I need to plant different stuff in the garden next year.
No wonder I love them so much.
