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! 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.
