I like roasted things, parsnips, rutabaga, carrots, last night I roasted broccoli. I also like my greens steamed with some vinegar.

I like turnips - mashed, roasted, fried, chips
Mashed celeriac is pretty good.

Stir-fried zucchini, summer squash, and red bell peppers sautéed in coconut oil with a touch of S and P is just awesome.

Ditto to SDLEE514's question, LOL.

JADEY, I found the same thing until I simply upped my fat... I eat all of my cooked veggies with a pat of butter, and all of my raw veggies with oil and spices. If you want a bit more 'carb' (some people need more carbs, and if you don't have insulin resistance issues carbs are not a problem) add in squashes: chayote, kombocha, acorn, butternut, spaghetti, pumpkin... they are all tasty and can be used so many ways, stir-fried, mashed, cubed.

I cook some sort of squash with nearly every meal for my daughter. She is 10, athletic (never stops moving), and can out-eat my husband... she needs the fuel.

She and I also eat a half avocado with every meal (DH doesn't like them, lol).

If you'd simply like more variety, add roasted veggies: beets, parsnips, leeks, brussel sprouts.

Actually, SDLEE514, that's a good question. I guess I'm looking for carb replacements because of the way I've always cooked. Maybe I should be asking for side dishes that help keep that full feeling longer, because when I just have meat and veggies, I end up being hungry like 2 hours later. This is with loads of water to accompany the meal.

I guess my question to you, and I don't mean to sound condescending or mean or anything, is why you feel the need to have carb replacement? I can see if you're making a specific dish that truly is traditional based on carbs (i.e., spaghetti and meatballs, using zucchini noodles) but otherwise, what's wrong with a full plate of protein and veggies? Just last night I had pork chops with mango salsa, I loaded on the mango salsa and it felt like a complete meal to me.

Hey everyone,

I'm still getting my feet wet when it comes to Paleo and I need some ideas for side dishes / carb alternatives that don't involve cauliflower - because I'm starting to get sick of it LOL.

I know about spaghetti squash, slicing up zucchini for "pasta" and Sweet potato anything... but outside of that, any other suggestions for a "carb" replacement?
