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.
carrots (raw — they move to yellow-for-caution when cooked.)
peppers — all varieties
peas (fresh or frozen)
sugar snap peas
summer squash (yellow crookneck and patty-pan)
sweet potato (surprise!)
Beans fall in this category, too. Here are some to choose from.
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.
