    The Misunderstood Potato

    All the people who don't like eating vegetables have

    one thing in common- their love for anything potatoes.
    Potato is one such vegetable that tastes yummy in
    every form - mashed, baked, boiled, sweet, fried, you name it.
    Unfortunately, it has been given a bad reputation due to
    the misconception that it makes you fat, increases blood sugar,
    and causes heart problems and other health issues.
    Like they say, 'Blame the player, not the game' same way,
    'Blame the method, not the potato!' Very few realise that
    it's the form in which we eat potatoes that matters more.
    Most of us choose fried and salty variety like French fries,
    cutlets, chips etc. but if eaten in baked/ roasted form it
    can prove to be really healthy.

    Energy: Potatoes are starchy carbs which provide energy
    instantly. It's a great snack when feeling weak, famished or tired.
    Since it is digested easily it is a boon for patients, babies and
    aged individuals who cannot eat hard food.
    Digestion: Potatoes have good amount of soluble fiber and
    with the skin it also provides insoluble finer which prevents
    constipation, reduces cholesterol and helps you feel fuller longer.
    Blood pressure: They are also a good source of potassium
    which helps control blood pressure and reduce water retention as well.
    Gum problems: There is a very high amount of vitamin C in
    potatoes which can prevent gum bleeding. Vitamin C is also
    necessary for collagen formation which helps heal the skin,
    wounds and bone cartilages.
    Cell building: The vitamin B6 content of potatoes is required for
    formation of new cells in the body and also for normal brain functioning.
    Heart diseases: Potato skin contains lot of phyto chemicals
    which which help protect against cardiovascular-disease by
    lowering levels of bad LDL - Cholesterol and keeping arteries fat-free.
    Eat them the right way and you will never disregard them.
    Did you Know? A bite of Potato is eaten before a meal. This
    helps the tongue become clear of any taste in your mouth and
    let's you fully enjoy the taste of food
