The Skinny on Potatoes

Since a Harvard study pegged potatoes as one of the worst foods for your waistline, you might be avoiding them. Don’t! Bikini Potato: Hot Potato! Potatoes are vegetables, and in addition to being a great source of potassium and vitamin C, they’re high in fiber (keeps you full ;), which makes them a much healthier alternative to other comfort foods, like cookies. How they’re prepped is what could make spuds skew the scale-and as the numbers show, most of us overwhelmingly are drawn to processed potatoes. A better way to enjoy them: baked and topped with a dollop of Greek yogurt or my favorite is cottage cheese.

Questions: (answer by leaving a comment)

1. Are you afraid to eat potatoes?

I eat them all the time…probably 2-3 x’s a week.

2. What is your favorite way to have a potato?

I love mine baked in tin-foil, sliced up into chunks topped with cottage cheese then zap it in the microwave for 30 seconds. DELISH!
