9 Healthy potato recipes to try this month

Most people who are trying to lose weight think potatoes are off the menu because of the carb content. Well, then you might be surprised to hear that as part of a good balanced healthy diet they can actually contribute to your weight loss.

Potatoes contain almost no fat and are relatively low in calories. They are also rich in carbohydrates, protein, and many vital nutrients like vitamin C, B-complex vitamins, potassium, manganese, and more.

Potato Nutrition facts

Potatoes with the skin on are a good source of fibre which keeps your digestive system healthy. The skin also minimises nutritional loss during the cooking process.

Potatoes contain a number of health promoting phytonutrients such as carotenoids, phenolics, kukoamines, and flavonoids.

These compounds are well known for their antioxidant and anticancer properties, and their ability to reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases.

They are naturally gluten free as well!
