I agree I think that they are considered a Carb and a veggie. But you have to count them as both and not one or the other. I think that is what I was told

Rice is definitely in the carbs group as are potatoes! At least that's what I was taught during a nutrition class.

i'm not sure about the rice, but i remember reading something when i was pregnant that said that a potato counted as a serving of "other vegetables". so i don't know if you could really count it as part of your daily intake, unless maybe it was just something extra. very good question.

Wow, that's a really good question. Part of me doesn't think so because they are so high in starches and carbohydrates...
