What are Non-Starchy Vegetables

Depending on your activity level, gender, and how your body personally responds, you may need more or less starchy vegetables.  I personally do much better energy wise and mental clarity-wise with 1-2 fist sized servings of starchy veggies per day.  I assume you know, but just for future readers, corn is not a vegetable, it's a grain, despite all the "vegetable" sides in restaurants that are corn (and peas, haha).  Good luck!  I'm very into artichoke hearts right now.  If you do a google search, the american diabetes association has a list of starchy/non-starchy vegetables.  I'm not going to link to it because it includes off plan things.   It also, surprisingly, includes most squash as non-starchy, but only butternut and acorn as starchy.

Thanks.  Part of why I'm doing this thing is to try getting my eating under control and make myself feel fuller on veggies.  I love veggies, but I tend not to feel like I've had a MEAL unless there's a big potato or hunk or bread.  :-/
