A food that defies "conventional wisdom"


"Conventional wisdom" has been telling us
for years that this common plant food is
one of the worst things we can eat.

I believed it for a long time, but experience
has taught me not to buy into the conventional
wisdom.

The health benefits of the lowly potato
may surprise you.

Potatoes
The perfect food?




Potatoes have received a bad rap over the years.

We've been told that potatoes are fattening.

 Low carb diets make potatoes a sin.

What's the truth? Properly prepared, potatoes

 are low in calories and an excellent source of

 vitamin B6, vitamin C, fiber, and minerals 

such as potassium, magnesium, and iron.
