What are some ideas for starches?

Posted on 28 July, 2017 at 13:21 Comments comments (128)

I frequently get asked for ideas for starches for dinner. 

Here are a few!

baked potatoes (1 small baked)
baked sweet potatoes (1 small baked)
roast potatoes (recipe below)
couscous (1/2 cup serving size)
pasta or whole wheat pasta, keeping in mind that the serving size to start with is 1/2 cup!

Be sure to have your other meal components on the side- 3-4 oz. of protein and your veggies.  

When you are in a hurry and really want fries- have these on hand-  Alexia brand oven fries (in freezer section, near the other fries)  These are baked, not fried.  

for this recipe, I recommend olive oil instead of vegetable oil


To Carb or Not to Carb?

Do I really need carbs?

I get this question all the time.  
And yes, the answer is yes. 
Your brain needs them for functioning
Your muscles need them (especially before and after exercise) 
They provide your body's PRIMARY energy source
They help regulate blood glucose
They prevent the use of protein for meeting energy needs
They provide fiber, which helps you feel more full (esp. whole grains)
Aim for at least 6-8 servings per day
Did I convince you? Did I?
