Turnips vs. Rutabagas

Postby Newfiewife » November 6th, 2006, 9:19 am

I read in the quick start we can have turnips, and I assumed that meant the small ones that are white inside. But can we have Rutabagas too? They are much larger and are yellow on the inside. I wasn't sure if one was considered more starchy or not.



PS: I've been on the diet for a month and I have lost 20lbs! Awesome! It makes my husband so jealous! LOL

I would say that if it doesn't mention rutabagas in the quick start, then I wouldn't use it. Thats the best rule of thumb to go by.

Congrats on your 20lbs, and let your husband know that there are guys doing this successfully. I have lost over 140 lbs in less than 7 months.

Looked this up at a nutrition data site. 1 cup of turnips has 34 calories, 8 g carb, 3 g fiber, 5 g sugar, and 1 g protein. 1 cup of rutabaga has 66 cals, 15 g carb, 3 g fiber, 10 g sugar, and 2 g protein, so that's probably why we can have turnips but not rutabagas. I can only find rutabagas so far in fresh produce, but have found cubed turnip in the frozen vegs.
