Did you know potatoes have more potassium gram-for-gram than bananas? Potatoes are also a good source of magnesium, an essential nutrient your body uses to make protein, store energy, and keep your cells stable and healthy.
And they’re much lower in calories than other staples (eg: rice and pasta). That is as long as you leave off the butter, sour cream, cheese, and meaty bits.
You say potato, we say why not?
