    Question [B]Confused on Vegies[/B]

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    I've read Marks chapter on vegies and I'm still confused. Should I eat more green leafy or more root vegies or and equal amont, as measured in oz's?

    I've found I need to eat one root vegie in the evening or I have trouble going to sleep.

    Just eat vegies. As many as you like within any carb limit you set yourself

    And relax. This shouldn't be stressful
    Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.

    Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine

    Primal does not = low carb. Root veggies are not the devil. If you need them for *your* optimal health (which includes a good night's sleep) then eat them.

    Potatoes are awesome.

    There are no cheat days. There are days when you eat primal and days you don't. As soon as you label a day a cheat day, you're on a diet. Don't be on a diet. ~~ Fernaldo

    Vegetables are delicious and should not be limited in your diet

    I mean there's so many ants in my eyes! And there are so many TVs, microwaves, radios... I think, I can't, I'm not 100% sure what we have here in stock.. I don't know because I can't see anything! Our prices, I hope, aren't too low!

    Well, potatoes are really heavy and green leafies are really light, so if you went ounce for ounce on them you'd end up eating a LOT of green leafies. I think in general it probably works well to go unlimited on any green leafy and have one (sweet) potato at dinner (or half if it's really big). Start there and adjust as needed. Many people will tell you not to limit potatoes, but if you are like me and spent a lifetime thinking corn and potatoes were veggies and chard and spinach were only for rare occasions, it's probably good to limit potatoes until your tastes change.
