Potatoes are healthful!

by: Dr. Donald A. Miller
Not deep fried potatoes. 

Not potatoes smothered in butter, margarine, or sour cream. 

Low fat yogurt can be used as a topping, plain or with herbs and spices. 

But try potatoes that are baked, boiled, fried on a non-stick surface with a minimum of oil or non-stick spray, chopped into soups and stews, and on, and on. 

It is extremely unfortunate that deep fried and salted potatoes ("french-fries" or pomme de terre frit" or "pomme frit", and potato chips) are so tasty, and are now the most popular of all fast foods. But severely restrict your intake if you don't want heart disease, stroke, and other 

Potatoes are such a complete food that some societies in South America (Andes of Bolivia, Ecuador and Peru, where potatoes were first cultivated) eat little else. 

Prepared with little fat or salt, Potatoes are healthful!
