Shortcuts to carb counting I’ve started using

It’s been a while since I’ve posted, and I’ve found that as my little one with diabetes gets older and eats more carbs, I can be a little less careful about certain things.  The following are shortcuts I’ve been starting to use:

For normal homemade bread I just use a carb factor of .4.  I would not use this if raisins or more than a few tablespoons of sugar were added.

For cooked vegetables, I often just eyeball the number of tablespoons as I scoop them with a normal tablespoon.  They are low carb enough that this works.  I would not do this for corn or peas.
