Hi! Happy Healthy Food Friday!
It’s Alysa here – I’m the official Registered Dietitian for the Mamavation Moms. One of the questions I get from the Mamavation Moms is, “Can I still eat potatoes?”. Somewhere along the way, most of you have been told that potatoes are a “bad” food and that you should stay away from them. I’m here to tell you that’s not true. When you rescue a potato from the deep-fryer, you find one of the best food sources of potassium on the planet. When you save a potato from calorie-bomb toppings such as sour cream and butter, you get a good source of vitamin C and fiber.
The key lies in how you prepare your potato and how big your portion size is. This recipe calls for small yukon gold potatoes and just a spritz of olive oil. Take one and pass them around for a healthy starch that satisfies the craving for fried potatoes.
