Day 25: Yukon Gold Potatoes
There are many varieties of potatoes, but one of my very favorites is Yukon Gold.
They are perfect for mashed potatoes because of their buttery, creamy texture. I also love making baked fries because they come out so flaky and tender they melt in your mouth. I seasoned them here with a vegan curry sauce and didn’t use any extra oil.
I eat a lot of potatoes…I believe they are one of the healthiest foods to eat and are a perfect staple for the high carb, low fat, plant based lifestyle.
Here are more reasons to eat potatoes:
- They will help you lose weight! Healthy carbohydrates are our bodies natural preferred #energy source. They digest very quickly and easily and make you feel more satisfied than eating high fat foods. You will end up eating more and weighing less!
- Great source of vitamins (like B6 and C) and minerals like (iron and copper) in fact the vitamin C in a potato will help your body better absorb the iron.
- Not only are potatoes a healthy #starch, they have a good amount of #protein!
