I discovered that potatoes do indeed have Vitamin C, about 25% of the daily requirement (if you keep the skins on), and more potassium than a banana. I was surprised to see that nutritionally they beat out brown rice. That's, of course, without the sour cream, butter and other yummy additions!
We often bake extra potatoes in the oven and then refry them in olive oil (I know this is good for me!) and a little seasoned salt. Now I can enjoy the taste while feeling good about the nutrition. Win - win!
