  • this is from Baylor College of Medicine:

    Pickles and cucumbers consist mainly of water with just a small amount of calcium, a trace of iron, a few calories and no protein. Because they offer little nutritional value, they are not considered a "vegetable choice" in the School Lunch Program.

    Although pickles are nutritional lightweights, they make a fun, tasty, fat-free, low-calorie condiment or snack. But, do keep in mind that one large dill pickle provides over 1700 milligrams of sodium, or 70 percent of an adult's suggested daily supply.

  • yeah they arent considered to be a CHOICE because it isnt that healthy for them but they are still a vegetable.

  • I noticed "points" - are you doing Weight Watchers? I am far down 5 pounds!! I thought pickles were free, either that or 1 point. if you're talking dill, not sure about sweet
