Erin McCormick says
Are these considered a grain or a vegetable?
Parsnips are a starchy veggie so when “visualizing” a plate, they are in the smaller, grain section. Parsnips have about 100 calories per cup which is similar to potatoes. Veggie fries like carrot or green bean only have about 30-40 calories per cup so when “visualizing” a plate, they are in the larger, veggie section.xx
