Carb Check Diet: Growing Carb Friendly Veggies

 Mike Thayer 2016 (2)By Mike Thayer

When it comes to growing veggies that are carb friendly, think salad.

Most veggies that you would put on a salad are on the lower side of the carb-count chart.

RadishesSo if you're wondering what to grow in your garden that won't bust your carb-count for the day, what you like on your salad is for the most part a safe bet.  Lettuce, some cherry tomatoes, a few radishes, slices of cucumber and some chopped up celery for crunch will make for a nice side salad and only cost you about 9 grams in carbs.  And not only is a salad refreshing as well as a nice change of pace, these good carbs give your body the fiber that it needs.  Fiber is a must to help your body operate efficiently.

Veggies you might love on your salad but come at a high carb price are:  Avacados, carrots, onions and peppers.  If you're watching carbs, these are sadly, a no-no.

I love to garden and this spring I've planted a lot of carb friendly salad garden veggies.   I've planted broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, celery, cucumber, lettuce (of course), radish and tomato.

Non-salad veggies to consider growing in your garden include garlic, zucchini and other varieties of squash.  And something I love on a salad but can't grow in the garden, fresh white button mushrooms, they too are a low carb veggie.

Have some fun by grow a salad garden.  You'll enjoy eating the harvest even more!
