Deep down in my Texas heart ….. I genuinely and secretly LOVE potatoes… But my dietitian head is always reminding me that they aren’t the best choice nutrition wise, so what’s a girl to do?! Instead of completely ignoring my cravings and then wind up overeating on another food that is still not what I want, I choose to cook with the best ingredients and watch my portions (1/2 cup of plain cooked potatoes= 57 calories, 0 grams of fat, 13 grams of carbohydrates, 1 gram of fiber and 1 gram of protein)…. This option is a win-win!Also, I know eating healthy can be hard with a spouse. My husband is relatively healthy and likes to eat healthy foods but he can pretty much eat whatever he wants and not gain a pound so there is always a push-pull between us about the menu and this recipe is one of my husbands all-time favorites so I try to make it for him once a month so he doesn’t feel like ‘he is living in a rabbit cage’. His words not mine!
Now on to today’s ridiculously amazing recipe and I also like to bring this as a side dish to dinner parties!
For today's recipe I used the Yukon potatoes. Even though white get a bad rap- they do still have nutrients! Real food is always the best choice over fried processed foods! White potatoes contain:vitamin C, potassium, vitamin B6, niacin, thiamin and the skin is an excellent source of fiber. Sweet potatoes ARE more nutrient dense and a better choice but it is okay to enjoy white potatoes once in a while :)
Do you ever eat white potatoes? If so, how do you like to cook them?Love, Marla
