This Sparked Me!

Yes, white potatoes are a starchy vegetable. A potato with skin is low in calories & has key nutrients for a diet ~high in potassium, fiber,Vitamin C, B6, B3, B1, folic acid, magnesium & iron. Thin skin red potatoes are lower in starch & they don't need to be peeled. Red potatoes can be easily grilled or roasted & are delicious w/olive oil & nuts. Potatoes are good for stomach ulcers & acidity. Serve them with a protein, leafy greens or other dark green less starchy veggies, to balance carbs.

Mash, Bake, steam, boil, even fry in some olive oil. Use in stews and roasts, soups, as sides, or bake with brocolli & cheese ontop. Add Oscar Mayer Real Bacon Bits.
Try eating a potato is so good with out all the stuff added.....go ahead just try it!
