Why do white potatoes get a bad rap?


White Potatoes are good for you! As long as you aren’t frying them, eating them as chips, loading them with butter, or sour cream…  you don’t need to avoid eating them.


White potatoes are higher in starchy carbs but that doesn’t mean they are bad! It’s not like they are packaged and loaded with chemicals or artificial ingredients. They are NATURAL. and are a good source of potassium, fiber, and vitamin C.

There’s no lie.. I am a POTATO girl. I like white & sweet potatoes served any way. I do avoid the fried kind and I stay away from  full fat potato chips. However, I will take a baked potato or oven roasted potatoes any day.


Here are some ways I enjoy my sweet & white potatoes :)

  • Baked in the oven, wrapped in tin-foil
  • Chopped and roasted in the oven with olive oil & seasonings
  • Baked as fries drizzled with canola oil
  • mashed with skim-milk and a little butter or olive oil


When it comes to food, I think everything in moderation is okay!!
