I really know next to nothing about nutrition. I never know if what I'm eating is a high carb etc. (except for the obvious examples such as cake).
I am looking for an online "ap" where I can put in what food I eat and it will tell me how many carbs and calories it has. I have seen some online, but they aren't very easy for me to navigate.
For instance, today I had four baby boiled potatoes with tsp. butter, 1 cup salad with 5 cherry tomatoes and 1/8 cup red pepper, and 2 dried dates with a soaked raw almond I stuck inside each. I have no clue if dates are high carbs because the packaging from the health food store doesn't list any nutritional information. I have been eating a ton of these little treats! They are so sweet and sugary I suppose they are a high carb, though.
I do know that potatoes are a carb, but are they terribly high?
I have eliminated refined sugars and grains from my diet. I eat mostly plant based meals, but I have meat occasionally and I eat eggs. I eat a LOT of fruit. I make green smoothies with spinach, collards and kale, but I put a lot of different fruits in it. Are the fruits doing anything to my blood sugar or is it fine because they are natural, unprocessed?
