Veggie Carb Count: Veggies provide you with all the carbs you need, no pasta, rice, potatoes, bread, chips required......
I used to look up carb counts on the internet or read the packaging for each and every food item I prepared and ate. When putting something on the grill or in a frying pan for example, I would read the packaging or look on the internet for the serving size and carb count. Writing those numbers down, I would then do some math to get a carb count total for all foods consumed at meal time. That carb count research got tedious at times, but now I've got some great data to share!
You don't have to look up carb counts one-at-a-time, yours truly - Mr. Bachelor on the Cheap - has done all that work for you!
Find carb counts for meat, fish, dairy, veggies, fruits, right here on www.bacheloronthecheap.com.
And if you don't see the carb count for a food you want to eat listed here, it's not listed for a reason - the carb count is too high, don't eat it!
Veggies are the key element to what I call the Carb-Check Diet. Eating vegetables means eating GOOD carbs. Veggie carbs REPLACE the bad carbs that are breads, pastas, rice, potatoes and chips. Know that eating something like avacado, in let's say a guacamole dip, is WAY better in diet terms than say, eating pasta (1 cup of cooked pasta has about 42 grams in carbs)..... and yes, guacamole is THAT good! And think of how much money you'll save at the grocery store not buying pasta, rice, potatoes, bread or chips...
