Carb game

26 11 2007

When I was in college, one of the jobs I had was as a Peer Health Educator. So, when I found out I had diabetes, I decided to give a presentation about it. One of the games I had was this carb game. I made flash cards with pictures of the food on the front and a description and serving size on the back. They had to line up the food in order of least carbs to most carbs, then I pulled out an answer sheet to see how well they did. I thought it was a great way to show the different amounts of carbs in various foods. I still have the game tucked away somewhere, but I thought it would be fun to do an online version. =)

Below are a various foods, listed with the serving amount I used for the calculation. First person to post the correct order from lowest to highest amount of carbs gets a virtual completely carb-free cookie! lol I will create a new post with the answers (along with the actual carb count) once someone wins. Good luck! (Note: all numbers are verified via CalorieKing, but no cheating, people =P)
