Sharing the good news... if you believed that potatoes equal pounds and are no better than candy, it's time to wake up and taste the produce. The truth is that one medium baked potato has only 161 calories, plus 4 g of filling fiber. And, a chilled, cooked potato is packed with resistant starch, a fibrous substance that could help you lose weight.
Potatoes are a good source of vitamin C and potassium. Potatoes are high in carbohydrates but they're low in sugar, fat and sodium, and they'll stay that way if you use healthful cooking methods and recipes.
Since potatoes are high in potassium, they work in opposition to sodium to help regulate blood pressure and fluid balance. It's also essential for normal muscle and nerve function. Vitamin C is needed for normal immune system function, blood clotting and strong connective tissue and blood vessel walls.
Frugal, simple and good for you Potatoes...
So, boil em, bake em, grill em, roast em and enjoy em!
