carrots are actually high in carbohydrates, they are considered a "high carb" root veg.  In fact I just made a cake with carrots.

Speaking of carbs, here's a tip for those who love mashed potatoes but don't love the carbs: Mix mashed potatoes with mashed turnips or cauliflower, about 50/50. Those veggies are lower on the glycemic index, and will actually make the 'tates more delicious. Add a little butter or olive oil, low-fat milk or sour cream, chives or garlic.

Leftovers? Form them into patties, coat them in breadcrumbs or the like, a little parmesan, and lightly sautee.

Cabbage is another mostly harmless veggie that can be mixed with mashed potatoes. The Irish call it colcannon, though I think they add cheddar to improve the taste. ;)

Sure and begorrah I've made that dish many times, Lassie. I boil potatoes until tender, remove and drain, throw cabbage and chopped onions in the pan of water and cook until tender, remove and drain. Mix all together, along with grated cheddar cheese, reserving some to sprinkle on top. Put in cooking sprayed baking pan, top with reserved cheese, bake at 350 for half an hour or so, until cheese melts. I love this dish, and it doesn't seem too bad, weight-loss-wise.

Here's a not so Irish secret my Katy-girl:  I add a bag of baby spinach to mine so I get my greens in relatively painlessly.

I like spinach.  I put it in my salad every day.
