Salad Carbs

So I have been trying to have vegetarian salads for my lunch in work.

Mainly trying to increase my intake of nutritionally dense foods, but having an issue with my carbs.

I typically use a half can of cooked lentils, along with 200g of leafy greens. But my carbs are typically below my target of 60g. My fat and protein are very easy to manage.

I was wondering if a full can of leñtils would be too much? I will use leftover roasted vegetables some days.

But it's the days I just want to throw a salad together for the following day.

Cheers

Pasta, rice and cous cous are all good for carbs. I prefer cous cous with salad myself and it’s a little less refined than pasta. If you don’t need quick glucose release, go whole meal pasta, brown/wild rice or cous cous. I prefer the taste of whole meal pasta and brown rice cold rather than their more processed cousins.

Should be easy enough to calculate your 60g of carb.

A full can of lentils is fine, they are quite good for you, just be sure to get variety. Just boiled/roast potatoes and sweet potatoes with nothing on them (no salt/butter/oil) are very good. I get most of my potassium from potatoes alone etc.
