*Po-tay-toes!* Boil ’em, mash ’em, stick ’em in a stew… Lovely big golden chips with a nice piece of fried fish.
Samwise Gamgee had the truth of it, potatoes are life and here’s some good news; potatoes are a great source of carbs. Our bodies need CARBS. Yes! Our body need carbs so eat potatoes! *Yay, bring on the chips…. er…
(Before you smash that bag of chips…) Obviously over-eating too many carbs, and you may start to resemble them #potatobod . However, maintaining an active lifestyle and eating potatoes in their whole food form (try to avoid too many of those, lovely big golden chips Sam) is a fantastic fuel source.
*Pro tip, always eat the skins, they are full of fiber and other wonderful things that make potatoes such a power punch fuel source.
