    Carb help!

    Shop Now
    What are some good carb sources BESIDES fruit and sweet potatoes?? I tried to buy and eat fruit because I mostly just eat meat/seafood/veggies, but I just hate fruit and can't stomach it, it's rotting in my fridge lol. So I ended up buying the best quality milk I could find instead, but I had just eliminated dairy and would like to keep it that way if possible.

    Ok, carrots may work...I eat sweet potatoes occasionally but I'm not a big fan. Not even of carrots actually lol. I just have such a hard time eating carbs for some reason, they're just...ugh. Idk lol. I've just been tired a lot and I think it's from lack of carbs, otherwise I would just keep doing what I'm doing.

    Which "sweet potatoes" are you eating.

    Most people get sweet potatoes and yams mixed up.

    Yams are the red ones you eat at xmas time coated in nasty marshmallows, and sweet
    potatoes are light skinned and yellow inside when you cook 'em.

    I lurve both, but I find that sweet potatoes are way more delicious and less "watery" than
    yams.

    Anyway, just wanted to throw that out there.... but yeah, try carrots, parsnips, rutabaga, turnips....

    How many carbs are in avocadoes?? I eat usually one a day. I hate rice, but squash may be an option. Why are all carbs just so...unappetizing??? Lol

    Hmm have you tried Pumpkin/butternut squash/spaghetti squash/acorn squash

    I believe Turnips are carby as well. They are good in a nice stew. You can take all the squash and add it to a nice stew actually..along with your carrots. I only like carrots cooked myself. Parsnips are pretty good, give them a shot.

    Sweet potatoes with cinnamon and butter are pretty good.

    Just put your favorite sauce/fat over it and it can make just about anything delectable. Ohh another thing that is really good sweet potato fries, and all the squash (except maybe spaghetti)/carrots to make veggie chips. Make sure you are using animal fat or coconut oil on that stuff.

    I like mashed turnips with butter too! The consistancy is exactly that of white potatoes.

    if u dont like carbs then y eat them. otherwise u can add food to hide the carbs if u dont like them. make chicken/beef/pork fried rice with coconut oil. add butter to mashed potatoes with roasted garlic.

    garlic and onions are pretty high in carbs too for their weight.
