If you’ve got the itch for starch, here are a couple of potato videos, potatoes in trash cans and sweet potatoes in containers.
Potatoes don’t really get as much notoriety unless they’re fried or stuffed. Spuds are a:
- • Great source for vitamin B6, C, potassium
- • Food free of cholesterol, fat, and sodium
- • Low-calorie food (medium-sized spud ~110 calories)
- • Great source for phytonutrients (caffeic acid, carotenoids, flavonoids)
- • Member of the nightshade family
- • High fiber content source (skin)
- • Source of magnesium, phosphorous, and zinc
Enough of the petulant praising of potatoes, pals, here is a video of potatoes…and one of sweet potatoes!
Oh, here is the skinny on the sweet potatoes:
- • Rich in beta-carotene
- • Nutritious and high in fiber
- • High in vitamins A, B5, B6, thiamin, niacin, and riboflavin
- • Improve artery, blood, bone, muscle, and nerve function
- • Are DELICIOUS, (objectively speaking of course)
