{Food} Thanksgiving Carb Counts

by Leighann on November 27, 2013

Thanksgiving is tomorrow and I know carb counting and food is on your mind. Here are some carbs counts of common foods. I’ll be doing a combination of counting/weighing/measuring and SWAGging.*

Remember that 1 oz. equals 28 grams by weight. See the Equivalent Measures.

And skip the sugar-free Cool Whip and go for regular. Sugar-Free Cool Whip actually has more carbs (3 carbs per 2 tbs) than Regular Cool Whip (2 carbs per 2 tbs) if you can believe it!

Happy feasting!
