Add new healthy potato recipes to your dining table

We all know what potato is. Not all of us know much about its nutritional value. And chances are that even less of us have enough ideas on what kind of different delicious dishes can be made of it. Yes, meat and potato is something all of us can mention. But what else? Any healthy ideas?

The fact is that there’s plenty of healthy dish options when it comes to potato. Especially considering potatos have lots of C vitamin in them, lots of potassium, zero-fat, zero cholestorol or zero sodium in it. Plus a medium-sized potato has just 110 calories in it.

US Potato Board has just been joined by Chef and dietitian Katie Cavuto Boyle who is staring in the new educational “Seven Potato Types” video series that you can find at the end of this post.

But if you are looking for some great potato recipes

, don’t hesitate to head over to www.potatogoodness.com where you will find lots of healthy, not to mention creative, potato recipes, and where you can also sign up for a weekly newsletter to get new potato recipe ideas each and every week.

“Potatoes are a nutritional powerhouse,” says Katie, a US Potato Board “Real Mom” ambassador. “That’s why I like to use different colorful potato types as the base for light, spring salad dishes and then top with additional in-season veggies to round out a fresh, natural side dish.”
