Well, here is good news!  This is a category of food that is free — or nearly so, especially when you eat them raw.  The fiber makes them hard to digest, so it’s difficult to eat enough to give you a big insulin spike.  They also fill you up and provide lots of nutrients.   Spend some time checking out the produce section of your grocery store and buy some different varieties of vegetables.  Here are some suggestions of old standbys and some that might not appear regularly on your table.

 

alfalfa sprouts

artichoke

asparagus

bean sprouts

broccoli

brussels sprouts

cabbage

carrots (raw — they move to yellow-for-caution when cooked.)

cauliflower

celery

cucumber

eggplant

green beans

kale

lettuce

mushrooms

okra

onions

peppers — all varieties

peas (fresh or frozen)

radishes

spinach

snow peas

sugar snap peas

summer squash (yellow crookneck and patty-pan)

sweet potato (surprise!)

tomatoes

cherry/grape tomatoes

zucchini

Beans fall in this category, too.  Here are some to choose from.

black-eyed peas

baked beans

kidney beans

lentils

chick peas

pinto beans

 

If it isn’t on the list, it is still probably okay since the yellow and red light list is pretty short.  However, feel free to ask and I’ll check it out for you.

Eating to live and living for Christ,
