What vegetables can I shop for and use in my plan?

Both fresh and frozen are great, and can be added anywhere in the day. Here are a few to be mindful of:

  • Starchy vegetables such as kumara, potato, and pumpkin are in fact carbohydrates. It is important that you use the portion outlined on your plan.
  • Avocado is an awesome source of dietary fat, however, does add heaps of calories and needs to be portioned. Did you know that an avocado is in fact a fruit!
  • Corn is another one that is high in carbohydrates. Pieces are fine mixed through a frozen stir fry mix, however, if you would like to have a corn cob or a larger portion of kernels we recommend talking to your nutritionist.

Below we have a range of popular vegetables that you can use freely in your plan:
