So I know sweet potatoes are a good carb source, however if anyone else has any other suggestions I would greatly appreciate it.

fruit, veggies, Kristen Clever said she still eats rice, that she cannot get enough calories without it and that its culturally appropriate

Quinoa?

We do brown rice, white potato and gluten free pasta every so often but other than that, it’s usually sweet potatoes, fruits, veggies and nuts/nut butters.

Great thanks guys! I’m trying to help my hubby out. He has gone paleo with me for the month and he has been crashing hard. I’ve tried to explain that he needs to eat more then I do ,since he is 6’2 and a big guy, I’ve emphasized the importance of fat and protien however I believe he needs some more carbs. He is crashing hard during WODs.

Carrots, kale, winter squash.  Grill-roasted cherry tomatos or zucchini.  Oven-roasted broccoli.  Sauteed green beans with mushrooms and sundried tomatos.

Carmolized sweet onions are a great garnish/supplement as are pickles and pickled beets.

Cauliflower rice is wonderful.  Taboulli with or without the grain/couscous.

Baked parsnip fries are very popular at my dinner table.
