Starchy Vegetable List

By February 29, 2012

Follow me on:

Are starchy vegetables good or bad?

As a person with diabetes, I often get told to avoid starchy vegetables.  That has confused me because although they are higher in carbs than other vegetables, they are still full of good stuff like vitamins, minerals, antioxidants.

The answer is that they are nutritious foods but we have to limit how much we eat of them. One of the most common vegetables today are potatoes in the form of french fries, so many of us are not lacking in that area.  If you get most of your starchy vegetable quota through french fries, read this list and look at other options for getting more nutrients into your diet.

Starchy vegetables are usually higher in calories too.  They can be useful option for people who are on restricted diets and not getting enough calories.
