I never eat starchy foods without some type of protein.  If I do, I'm  hungry 5 minutes later b/c of the blood sugar swings.  I don't notice a problem when eating starchy veggies with protein.

I thought this might be interesting information related to the food combining starch topic.

Quoted from Is it a yam? Is it a sweet potato?
http://camden.ces.ncsu.edu/index.php?page=news&ci=AGRI+3
Sweet potatoes are available year-round. They are generally harvested in North Carolina from August to November. During this harvest season, sweet potatoes are often sold as "uncured fresh yams." Later, they are sold as "cured fresh yams" following a period of storage at a controlled temperature and humidity. This curing process extends the fresh marketing time. Yams are also marketed canned and frozen.

In the curing process, starch in the sweet potato or yam converts to sugar. Thus, baked cured sweet potatoes tend to taste sweeter than uncured.

It looks like the cured sweet potatos would be better to eat when included with a protein meal.

Quoted from lkpetrolino
How about starchy veggies such as pumpkin, turnips, rutabegas,  do you combine these with protien, tofu? eggs?  any protien?

According to the Nutritional Data website cooked Rutabagas, Turnips, and Pumpkin don't have any starch. Therefore, I think it would be perfectly OK to eat these with protein (meat, tofu, or eggs) based on the food combining rules.

When I eat any starchy veggie, I heard to always eat the protein first.  Eat the starchy food last, whether it is grain or veggie.  This always seemed like a good way to me...that is when I ATE starchy things....
