March is National Nutrition Month

Nutritional Tip

Did you drop potatoes from your menu back when they became the carbohydrate villains of the low-carb diet fad? That's really a shame, because when you prepare them properly, they're very good for you. Potatoes are good for your health because they contain fiber, vitamins B6 and C, lots of potassium, plus phytochemicals that help keep your blood pressure normal. Potatoes are also low in calories.

Visit Potato Goodness from the US Potato Board for lots of tips and recipe ideas to help you add this healthy vegetable back into your diet.

Heart Health - Potatoes and Potassium

Potatoes rank the highest for potassium content among the top 20 most frequently consumed raw vegetables and the top 20 most frequently consumed raw fruits.

One medium potato with skin contains at least 18% of your daily requirement of potassium - more than a banana!

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration reports that diets containing foods high in potassium may reduce the risk of high blood pressure and stroke.

In addition to being a great source of potassium, potatoes are also sodium and fat-free and contain just 110 - 150 calories per serving.

A serving of potatoes is just 25 cents - one of the most cost effective ways of meeting your daily potassium quota.
