ARE POTATOES HEALTHY?
Potatoes way too often get a bad rap for being unhealthy because they are a carb. Now come on, the carbs that are in potatoes are hardly the equivalent of carbs in junk food or sugary desserts. Remember, there are healthy carbs and unhealthy carbs. Here is why potatoes are the good carbs:
- Source of iron
- Great source of fiber
- High in potassium (1 medium potato contains about 770 mg)
- High in Vitamin C (1 medium potato contains about 50% of our daily RDA! Vitamin C is also needed to absorb iron into the body)
- Fat-free (yippee!)
