Default Parsnips

I knew this had come up before. I found this thread, parsnips, in the archives. Anyone know if the food lists in Good Fat Good Carbs was updated? I hate to miss out on a vegetable I could be eating, especially one that is still local.

ETA - looking at the glycemic load chart parsnips are pretty high. They are equivalent to bananas.

That helps me figure it out for us. It's not just a SBD issue but a diabetes concern here. I probably won't add parsnips to our meals. If I loved them I might have them once or twice a month with other things (maybe in roasted veggie mixes) but because we don't eat them now we won't miss them. I was thinking about adding them in and don't see any reason to do that.

But we are allowed to have bananas on Phase 2. Is it the same for parnsips? Or are they additionally bad because of the starchiness? I'm not a huge fan, but did find a recipe for parsnip ribbons that looked like a nice crunchy snack, something I'm always on the lookout for.

That came up in the earlier thread - it looks like it's an occasional food, maybe a couple of times a month. They are higher than corn, so maybe the same guidelines? I think a lot of this stuff is personal trial and error too. I was just trying to decide whether or not I should add them to our meal plans. That's an easier decision because they aren't a food that we really love and would miss.

Oh. I'm glad this was posted. I was eyeing up the parsnips at the store the other day as a substitute for carrot. Good thing I didn't buy!

We eat them maybe twice a year. It works for us - a little variety thrown in there once in awhile. We do the same with corn - get it when it's really good in the summer two or three times and really enjoy it then.

I agree with you Cyndi, they are one of my favorite vegs so I can leave them alone, no problem. Not looking for something that can create a problem for me.
