Potatoes Are Not Your Enemy!


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

How many time have you been told that starches are bad for you? Well guess what? Potatoes are one of the highest sources of potassium next to red meat. One medium red potato can contain up to 800mg of potassium, a sweet potato can contain up to 700mg and a russet potato can contain up to 1000mg. So if you have a hard time meeting your potassium needs like I do and want something that is actually not that high in calories, reach for a spud! :^)
