weight loss for women - Are Potatoes Healthy?

 

Throughout America, potatoes are the most popular vegetable, even being ahead of other well-known vegetables such as lettuce and onions.

You can cook potatoes in a variety of ways, and they
are included in one out of three meals eaten by
almost all Americans.

When they are prepared in a healthy way, the potato can be a great source
of energy and also pack a nutritional punch.

Just like oranges, the potatoes contain a lot of vitamin C.
In fact, one medium size potato contains 45% of the vitamin C that's recommended for good health.
Potatoes are also high in carbohydrates and fiber; and contain more potassium than a banana.

A potato is naturally low in calories and contains no fat, sodium, or cholesterol. The skins of the
potatoes provide a helpful dose of fiber, iron, potassium, calcium, zinc, phosphorus, and several
B vitamins.

You can prepare potatoes by boiling them, steaming them, or even roasting them. If at all possible,
you should avoid putting potatoes in the refrigerator or freezing them, as cold will turn the potato
starch to sugar and cause them to turn dark when they are cooked.

The best way storing potatoes, is to keep them in a dark and cool place.
Too much light will cause them to turn green. You can store them in the basement if
you have one, as the basement is the best place to keep them.

From mashed potatoes to baked potatoes, a potato is something we all know and love.
They serve many different tasty foods, and they provide our bodies with plenty of
healthful benefits.

We all eat potatoes, some of us even grow our own. Whether you grow your on or
buy them, the potato is the one vegetable that makes everything just a little bit better.
