Healthy Veggies

10 Feb 2012, by Dr. Marnie Wachtler in Nutrition

The following is a list of some of the amazing nutrient dense carbohyrate vegetables.  Eat those found on the ‘A’ list every day in unlimited amounts.  They contain high amounts of vitamins, minerals, and fiber.  Consume carbohydrates on the ‘B’ list in limited quantities and rarely consume the ‘C’ list carbs.  It is also possible to have food sensitivity reactions to even the healthiest foods.  That is why we recommend customizing your diet with the help of a food sensitivity blood test like the alcat test.
