I'm similar, Tara. I consume beans not at all, sweet potatoes and winter squash only rarely (once a month or less), carrots in moderation (once or twice a week), and onions frequently (daily). You can't part me from my onions. You cannot!
Onions and garlic are just fantastic!! I can't imagine life without them!
I happen to be addicted to broccoli, cauliflower, and spinach.
Unfortunately I ADORE sweet potatoes, love love love. Love. These I avoid nowadays and walk past them quickly at the grocery. Every very rarely I will buy one and cut it up small julienne and roast them like french fries in the oven. But I haven't done that in probably 4 months now? Even before I started PB.
In an attempt to eat local, organic during the great Canadian winter without summer prep I am eating many of the starchy veggies mentioned (carrots, parsnips, potatoes, winter squashes, onions, turnips, celeriac)but in moderation plus greenhouse tomatoes, peppers, cabbages and mushrooms. And non-local veggies including spinach, kale, broccoli and cauliflower.
I can usually keep carbs low by balancing my quantities and daily foods.
Made my first kale chips last night and they were yummy and easy to eat.
