parsnips are listed in the Good Fats Good Carbs book as Very Limited. One half cup has 15 carbs, 4grams of sugar and no fat. That said, I do use them occasionally in a stir fry that my son loves but I am well established on phase 2. I would not get near them on phase 1.
Celery root isn't listed in the book.
