  1. Hi, muhlestm. The “1 carb” refers to exchanges, much like those used for diabetics. The following are the approximate nutritional values of exchanes:
    Carb (including starchy vegetables): up to 15 grams of carbohydrates + up to 3 grams of protein
    Protein: up to 7 grams of protein + up to 5 grams of fat
    Fat: up to 5 grams of fat
    Vegetable (non-starchy): up to 5 grams of carbohydrate + up to 2 grams of protein
    Fruit: up to 15 grams of carbohyrates
    Sweet: up to 15 grams of carbohydrates + up to 5 grams of fat

  2. I would really like to eat these potatoes, but from my understanding a potato has around 25 carbs per potato? How is this recipe only 1 carb? I would love to eat them just not sure about the carb intake?

    Thanks
