Potatoes…they are often a demonized, after all, they’re a “white” carbohydrate. We’re always told to “stay away from anything white.” For the most part this is true. We should avoid things like white sugar, white pasta, white bread, and white flour. But these items have one thing in common: All of those items are highly processed and refined. That is not true when it comes to potatoes. Potatoes are a healthy, delicious and comforting whole food. According to the whfoods.com website, potatoes are high in: vitamin B6, potassium, copper, vitamin C, manganese, vitamin B3, fiber and pantothenic acid.
Yes, they are high in starchy carbohydrates. I’m not saying to “pig out” on them, but they are a good food to have on occasion, especially when you need some “comfort food”. If you eat them with some healthy fat, such as organic butter, you’ll slow down the digestive process and sugar spike. Also ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS eat ORGANIC potatoes. They are roots, and absorb all pesticides sprayed on them.
