I'm getting a bit stuck in a rut with the ones I'm eating so I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations? xoxo

    Vegetables.

    If you're looking for something more starchy, then root vegetables in particular. Sweet potatoes, beets, swede, parsnips.... all yummy and full of carbohydrates.

    Oh, thanks! I completely forgot about swede. I love it mashed up with carrots usually, and actually, I'm having clean sweet potato chips/fries tonight. It;s my first time cooking them this way and I'm very excited. :smiley: xoxo

    I sprinkled a bit of cayenne on them for a kick but they were pretty amazing. Turkey was pretty good too. :smiley:

    Quinoa is one of my all time favorite carbs. Plus it's loaded with protein and aminos too :)

    Tonight I am going to eat sweet potato with black bean enchiladas ( with fresh corn tortillas ) smothered with home made salsa verde. All natural with natural non-processed carbs, plus the beans and sweet potato also provide a fairly high amount of protein. As a side dish I am going to have vegetable stew and papaya. All complex carbs with a bit of healthy olive oil in the stew.

    I like crunchy things so sometimes I make crackers with lots of seeds in - I've called them Omega Crunchies :) Dead easy to make and silly cheap - flour and seeds of your choice .

    Thanks everyone, I'll have to check my FODMAP diet plan but they all sound amazing. I love black bean dip so it looks like it's time to learn to make it myself.

    Last night I made a quinoa, tuna, sweetcorn risotto type thing with tomato and basil sauce -- definitely a keeper for winter. So filling and good for you.

    Millet is delicious - slightly sweet. It's good tossed with grilled peppers, courgettes and mint or cilantro.

    It all sounds very yummy. But...what is a "swede"?

    Buckwheat groats!! Sounds gross but if you make a big batch you can eat it like oatmeal or as a savory side dish like brown rice :)

    Ezekial sprouted grain bread....I always toast one slice and add a slice of Boars Head Vermont Cheddar cheese and a slice of Boars Head Buffalo Chicken breast...or PB2 peanut butter, or a slice of avacodo with garlic salt;) BUT you must toast it! I only like it toasted!!! Lots of protein in it and NO flour!!! It is in freezer section at store.

    Buckwheat ... I love Buckwheat and it cooks up into a really nice side when you toast them in a pan, add finely mince/dice carrot, celery, onion, garlic and saute them a few minutes, then add broth or water, cover and cook on low heat until the liquid is absorbed and the buckwheat groats are tender. Yumm!

    PS -- add spice to your liking. Salt, pepper, herbs.
