Day 25: Yukon Gold Potatoes #27DaysOfThanks

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:

  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. Not only are potatoes a healthy #starch, they have a good amount of #protein!
