Fruits/potatoes/sweet potatoes/parsnips/taro/cassava/jicama/plantains and added sugar sources like honey, maple syrup, molasses count for your carb sources. And obviously, any non-Primal things you may eat like wheat, corn, rice, beans, etc. If you're picking lettuce leaves out of your salad because you're afraid it'll put you over some irrelevant "carbohydrate curve" number, you're doing it wrong
