Are potatoes good for you?

Julia Childs once said “people who love to eat are always the best people”. I’d like to add something in there (if you don’t mind Julz)… “people who love to eat POTATOES are always the best people”. Potatoes of all kinds receive such a bashing, but potatoes have for centuries been a staple food in many cultures and it’s really our western culture that’s tarnished their other wise good intentions as part of a healthy diet. I’ve know I’ve said this before but if you have fear of the potato because they’re so dense in #carbs, please try to understand what it is about a wholesome carbohydrate experience you’re fearing and work on that before demonising this humble vegetable – they actually serve great purpose in our diet.
If you need a refresher allow me to have your eyes and ears a moment more… white, orange, purple – all of them contain FIBRE. Fibre is up there as one of my favourite nutrients to encourage people to focus on because it is what fuels the bacteria in our gut microbiome.
WHITE POTATOES in particular cooked and cooled (steam them and make a taty salad or whack them in your lunchbowl) are a rich source of resistant starch – this type of starch ‘resists’ digestion in the upper GI tract, toddles on down to the lower aka large bowel, ferments, and feeds the cells in the lining of the gut, protecting it from digestive and other chronic disease.
Meanwhile SWEET POTATOES have the epic antioxidant factor including anthocyanins and beta-carotene which can help protect the body from chronic disease, support the function of our immune system and the strength of our vision just as a start.
The way we cook them is a factor in our enjoyment and so when you do include them naturally avoiding the deep frier is important but try to stick to steaming mostly and seasoning with delicious, hells yeah herbs and spices, or baking them with a drizzle of evoo and serving it up with a balance of other macros (protein, healthy fats) on your plate.
Potatoes cooked like this are SUPER my friend, don’t avoid them, enjoy them! From your humble potato lovin buddy – Jacq xo
