I had this discussion with a friend of mine
Friend - Well it's not healthy not to eat carbs. Our bodies need carbs.
Me - Oh I couldn't agree with you more. Definitely our bodies need carbs
Friend - but then why are you cutting them out if you feel that way
Me - Oh but I haven't cut them out. I eat plenty of them.
Friend - But you cut out pasta and bread - how can you be eating carbs?
Me - I eat sweet potato, beets, squashes, celery root, parsnips - these are all carbs.
Friend - no they are not - they're vegetables!
Me - Mental Facepalm - lets' just call them carby vegetables.
