My mother used to dish us up meat, and potato with peas and corn. Yeah good - meat + starch + starch + starch.
Starchy vegies are still "vegies" but try to limit your serving of starchy ones to 1 a day, and get 4+ servings of other vegies and fruit.

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.
