We are probably one of the many households here in the Philippines who never miss having potatoes on our meal plan every week. Potatoes are a versatile root vegetable and a staple food in many homes.
Eating potatoes didn’t really matter that much to me before. I enjoy it, I eat it, and that’s it. But when I became a mom, hence, I became more particular with the food I serve my children, I did check if serving potatoes for our meal every week is good and healthy for the family, especially my kids.
And now, I am sharing with you here on the blog a few reasons why I always serve potato for my family.
- Potatoes are not only healthy, but they are also delicious and extremely versatile.
- Potatoes are an excellent source of many vitamins and minerals.
- Potatoes are rich in compounds that act as antioxidants.
- Potatoes improve blood sugar control.
5. The resistant starch in potatoes may also improve digestive health.
6. Potatoes are also incredibly filling! Foods that are filling can curb hunger pains which may help you regulate or lose weight.
7. Potatoes are naturally gluten-free. This is actually one of the most popular diets worldwide.
Now that I shared that with you, let me show you what I cooked for lunch yesterday. And yes, you guessed it right! It’s something that has potatoes!
