Starchy Vegetables Starchy vegetables, such as corn and peas, may seem pretty healthy, but these veggies "make the calorie content of that salad zoom up pretty fast," says Barbara Bergin, M.D. Starchy vegetables have a higher amount of carbs, and when cooked, the starch turns into sugar. Moreover, starchy vegetables tend to raise your blood sugar levels more than non-starchy vegetables, which means carb cravings later in the day.
Swap it: Top your salad with bell pepper slices or fiber-packed edamame.
