In brief: Possibly
Here is the rule you wanna abide by: eat no more than 20 grams a day of net carbs, 12 to 15 grams of them as foundation vegetables.
This means you can eat approximately six loosely packed cups of salad and two cups of cooked vegetables per day. Remember, carb counts of various vegetables vary, so be sure to check them. So you can dedicate 5 extra grams of carbs to anything!
