I agree with this entirely; it's what Mom taught me. Corn, peas, potatoes go more in the rice, pasta serving size, whereas you can have more lettuce, cabbage, green beans, broccoli, etc. It was funny that when hubby decided to control his incipient diabetes with diet (and, yes, he's so far avoided having to go on meds), what Mom taught me was confirmed.

You can treat vegetables like a freebie food. Just eat as many as you want.

Of the not-overly-starchy kinds.

That's my attitude, ditto with most fruit. Eat as much as you want. Which reminds me, I have apples and tomatoes to juice...
