The last time I checked, potatoes are nutritious and good for you! Potatoes contain vitamins and minerals, as well as an assortment of phytochemicals, such as carotenoids and natural phenols. All be it, I think potatoes have a bad rap due to its high carbohydrate count (‘the anti-carb’ campaign really did not do the potato justice!) and most people like them either fried or smothered with butter or sour cream. I for one am guilty of all of the above! My favorite seduction is French Fries! After all, I have often said it is my ‘favorite food group’; sounds hideous, I know! Leave me be! Please!
