    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

    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.

    Sorry to bump this, but I have questions. There are a few veggies from the original :eek: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.

    How about beets??
    I see beet greens on the list, but not the beet itself.

    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. :(
