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.
