What IS the starch content of ginger anyway now you mentioned it, as it is not in the list? I agree totally with your rice idea's I react in the same way. Another thing I wondered about are lentils. They are pretty high in starch but Jan (Twisks) seem to thrive on them. Are there others who get away with some of the higher starch foods?
