Health benefits of potatoes

So, you think potatoes are boring. SURPRISE!! They are PACKED with nutrients!

People say that an apple a day keeps the doctor away, well, I will dare to suggest that a potato a day will do the same AND it may save your life.

Why? Well, it helps in reducing the risk of high blood sugar, strokes and heart attacks. It also assists your body in fighting inflammation and it helps to cleanse your liver.

In addition to its health benefits, it is a most versatile root vegetable. You can prepare it in a million ways.

Next time you need a boost of energy, don’t grab a snack bar, boil a potato and eat it skin and all. I guarantee that you will feel like a million bucks.

      Hi there! Thank you for your comment! I prefer baking potatoes in the skin. Boiling potatoes depletes it of nutrients. Why don’t you check out this link: for some ‘potato tips’?

      I’m following you’re blog now. I LOVE your work!!

      I’m dividing my time between charity and holistic counseling, so I’m always on the lookout for interesting things to share with my followers. I hope you won’t mind my sharing some of your posts now and then.

      Keep well (and stay healthy)!

      Regards, Sharon
