Potatoes are a great source of vitamins C and B-6, potassium, and other minerals. When eaten with the skin, they are high in complex carbohydrates and fiber; one medium sized baked potato (with the skin) provides 25 mg of vitamin C, which is more than 25% of the RDA (recommended daily allowance).
Many people think potatoes are fattening, but this is only true when they are fried or served with butter and rich sauces. A medium sized baked potato has between 120 and 150 calories, a small amount of protein, and almost no fat.
And although potatoes are often associated with Ireland, potatoes are native to the Andes Mountains and were first cultivated by Peruvian Indians at least 4,000 years ago. Spanish explorers introduced potatoes to Europe in the 1500s, where they became a staple food source for the poor.
Potatoes are now cultivated worldwide; in fact, they are the world’s largest and most economically important vegetable crop. For most North Americans, potatoes are a major component of their diet.
Besides the health benefits of potatoes, remember what Popeye says, “I eat my spinach because I’m strong to the finish.”
So make a big pot of this yummy and healthy creamy potato spinach curry. Your tummy will thank you!
