I'm just making the annual Corned Beef, Cabbage, Carrot and Potato boiled dinner. I know the Corned Beef is OK, Cabbage is OK , but man.. those carrots look good. The potato - I could care less about. I'm going to have to eat a carrot.:eek:

Enjoy the carrot! I never have liked cooked carrots but I think the potato would be hard to resist! Sounds good, enjoy! Right now I am smelling buns baking in the oven. Every weekend I make homemade buns for my family and sometimes I wonder why I torture myself with the aroma!

I am going to eat a carrot, some rutabaga & a potato. Heck, one has to live. Rutabagas ( called swedes in Irealnd) are also very traditional, & I love them, I seem to do ok on starchy veg, better than grains anyhow.

I eat carrots regularly; in my salad, in soups, in stews. It's not great quantities, but the usual amounts (the same as before dx). Don't have a problem with them. And actually I even thought that carrots are recommended for diabetics?

 

Potatoes though are a whole different ball game; I can eat like a 1/4 or a small potato OR some retrograded ones (in salads mainly), but even a few french fries make me spike to the moon!
