    SPAGHETTI SQUASH! My FAVORITE thing to do is roast the spaghetti squash, and then in a large pan fry onions, garlic, and then add boiled chopped roma tomatoes (optional - to more easily remove the skins - they freak me out a little) and add some dried or fresh basil towards the end. Season with salt and pepper and then scoop out the squash and add it to the mix. Good lord I want it now.

    I steam parsnips and mash with a heap of coconut oil or butter added and a dash of nutmeg. Leftovers make good pancakes the next day with the addition of some beaten egg.

    It won't help your carbs, but celery's one of my staples. Its good plain, or with dips, or nut butters, or tuna salad, or cooked in soups or stirfrys. For more carb dense veggies I love sweet potatoes and avacados.

If you do what you say you, especially if you're a male that's physically larger than me, more may be in order.
    I am a 52 year old woman, 5'3 in my stocking feet and 130 pounds I am also a beginning mountain biker (just learned last year), and am only able to get out for a couple of hours every few weeks. The weeks I don't mtb I just ride the road for a couple several-hour rides a week. I work with a trainer in a small group environment and the workouts are high intensity/very much like Crossfit, two one hour weekly sessions with an additional hour that is more like fitness games in format.

    If I were still riding 100+ miles a week I would certainly up the carbs, but I am not. I backed off a bit on the riding to balance everything out. I love to ride, but I also love the benefits from the training. While I am riding a bit less, I am a lot stronger on the bike when I do.

    I've also been exploring which veggies are highest in calcium. I am currently in a dairy elimination experiment and am trying to figure out how best to get my calcium. I did just learn how to make bone broth as a way to address this.

    I appreciate all of the great ideas here!

    I only recently discovered sweet potato! I had never had it before until a few months ago when my friend cooked his girlfriend some and I had a few.

    I love kabocha squash. So sweet and tasty. I've also recently discovered leeks, and they are awesome cooked in soups.
