So what is a base?  It’s a starch, and what I consider to be the foundation of the meal:
  • Potatoes, Rice, Pasta, Corn (polenta), Beans, etc.
According to the McDougall cookbook, Starches Make the Meal:
Starches are high in complex carbohydrates and dietary fiber, very low in fat, and contain no cholesterol.  They are loaded with vitamins and minerals and always contain generous amounts of healthy vegetable protein that satisfies the nutritional needs of growing children and adults.  Fruits and yellow and green vegetables are important additions to a starch-centered meal plan, providing a cornucopia of color, flavor, texture and aroma, as well as additional nutrients.
