Sweet potatoes and peas are both starch-y vegetables. So I reckon you could count them as vegetables. Personally, I don't count them in my daily quota of vegetables/fruits; I consider them to be in the category of bread or rice or pasta. BTW, corn and "regular" potatoes are like that too.

I count them as veggie but it doesn't really matter. I am more concerned that my carbs fats and proteins are balanced in my SP Nutrition Tracker..
If you are not using the food tracker here at SP I can't answer your question.
Good for you though for getting your veggies. How many a day? I shoot for a minimum of three but often have more.
