Yikes, Sandy, I forgot about
the "load" - so the fiber may keep the blood glucose lower. I was going just by the glycemic number. You're right. I'm sure it also depends on the amount eaten. I can eat radishes but I only eat about
4, maybe 5, at a time with a meal. And as with everything, always test after a new food is eaten because you never know how you'll react. I eat 3 or 4 pieces of raw turnip cut into small wedges along with a meal. It's crunchy like radishes. Nights when I don't eat an actual salad, I'll put a plate on the table with some radishes, turnip wedges and cucumber slices and nibble on them with the dinner food. (My husband always peels the cucumber but I don't so we compromise. I peel it in stripes, so it's sort of decorative. I think the skin is healthy to eat.) So, Linda, try the rutabaga but test
so you know how it affects you.
