Some more: celery root, rutabaga, [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yam_%28vegetable%29"]African yams[/URL].
Great suggestions! Except for fruit... I'm better keeping sugar to a minimum (even fructose) - it affects my sleep too much.
[QUOTE=Paleobird;860536]Have you tried quinoa?[/QUOTE]
I used to eat it all the time - but I stopped because it's a grain... (I read an article that said it's [I]okay[/I] but still not great). Does it work for you?
I'll make a big pot of beef stew and use either turnips, parsnips, or rutabaga instead of potatoes. Can't even tell the difference.
Rice if you need the calories.
I find white rice very benign. I'd say that if you have issues with white rice, you have issues with glucose and carbs in general.
If I dont eat moderate carb I get depressed and incredibly tired. I'm convinced it f*cks with my thyroid. Anyways,
Carb staples in our house are:
pumpkin (usually to make a primal type pudding for dessert on my heavy lift days)
and white potatoes....yup, a lot of them too. And I've seen no issue with them. I don't really understand the fear of them in the paleo community.
