25 Lowest-Carb Vegetables

Plant foods are always a healthier choice than processed foods—but don’t forget to count the carbs in vegetables.

By the dLife Editors

It’s not always easy to compare apples to oranges when it comes to carbs. Fruits and vegetables come in all shapes and sizes, and while it might seem like one is a lower-carb choice than another, it may just seem that way because of size and weight differences. We leveled the playing field for you here, so you can compare apples to apples…so to speak!

Note: To help you visualize a rough idea of what amounts to a 50-gram portion, here are some examples: 10 grapes, 1/3 of a medium-sized peach, ½ cup chopped celery, or two extra-long spears of asparagus.
