Potato Potawto


Tonight I am thinking about trying to make homemade Potato chips! I found a low calorie version and going to try that I think. I love all potatos cooked & prepared in every way: mashed, baked, twice, potato salad, scalloped, french fries, new, wedges, hashbrowns, roasted . . . the list goes on and on. Potatoes themselves really are not that bad for you, it's just how you prepare them and how much you eat of them. They contain a lot of potassium (more then bananas) as well as many other vitamins such as Vitamin C. The average medium size Potato has 110 calories, 0 grams of fat, 26 carbs, 620mg of Potassium, and 3 grams of protein. I used to think that Potatoes had a lot more carbs then this, but they don't.

So . . . .what's your favorite way to eat/cook Potatos?

{P.S. I'll let you all know how my low cal Potato Chip recipe turns out & share if they are good!}

I probably eat potatos in the most unhealthy way....I love them fried! They are so good. I also love them in the shredded hashbrown form. Yum!

My favorite way to eat potatoes would have to be perfectly crispy, thinly cut pommes frites. But since that's not the healthiest thing, I typically roast them with olive oil spray, sliced onions, sliced lemons, fresh thyme, salt, and cracked pepper. Mmmm.
