Health Benefits of Potatoes
Ever wondered what sort of health benefits potatoes have? Well, we're going to satiate that curiosity! Potatoes have a number of awesome health benefits that will improve your family's diet and well-being. Plus, they're delicious- especially when used in this recipe!
Potatoes contain a good dose of vitamin C. This well-known nutrient is mainly credited with boosting the immune system, but did you know that it's also important for skin health? Potassium can also be found in potatoes. A lot of people know that bananas contain potassium, but we bet not as many know that it can also be found in spuds. Potassium helps your heart and muscles work properly.
Potatoes contain a lot of starch, which helps give us a “full” feeling. If you're trying to cut down on the amount of food you're eating, adding potatoes to your diet will help with that. Of course, it's important to eat potatoes in moderation; too much starch can potentially have negative consequences for your diet and health.
