What Vegetables are High in Carbohydrates ????

Carbohydrate-rich foods, such as starches, should make up about a third of the food you eat, according to the Food Standards Agency. Certain vegetables are rich in carbohydrates, providing energy to the body's cells. In addition to providing carbohydrates, many vegetables are rich in other nutrients and substances, such as the B vitamins, certain minerals and dietary fiber. All vegetables are fairly low in calories, making them a appropriate food option for weight management.

Peas and Beans  

Black-eyed peas, split green or yellow peas are a starchy vegetable and a rich source of carbohydrates and protein. On average, 1/2 cup offers 115 calories, 20g carbohydrates, 8g protein and 1g fat. Green peas are rich in carbohydrates but lower in calories, providing 60 calories per 1/2 cup and 11g carbohydrates
