Potatoes are an accessible, familiar and delicious root vegetable that is very important for our health. They are high in healthy carbohydrates and starch.
Although all the confusion, missed information and carbophobia very well spread. Complex Carbohydrates are essential to long-term health. They help us to maintain a healthy weight and can even help prevent the development of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Potatoes are the type of carbohydrates that also contain healthy starches that provide energy, fiber, and various vitamins and minerals. Eating enough nutritious starchy foods can help a person's digestion, satiety, and energy levels.
Never store potatoes in the fridge. Store them in a cool, humid, and dark place (45 to 50 F ideally). We recommend having them on your counter or in a visible place, so you can have them on hand when it is time to cook.
Potatoes are one of those things that can only be eaten cooked. The great news is that they are very versatile and can be cut, sliced, diced, shredded, etc. and then they can be baked, sauteed, boiled, grilled, etc.
