Health Tip: Healthier Ways to Prepare Potatoes

02/09/12

(HealthDay News) -- Potatoes are a great source potassium, fiber and vitamin C, but many popular recipes also load on the calories.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics suggests how to enjoy the nutritional benefits of potatoes without piling on the calories:

  • Top a baked potato with low-fat or fat-free sour cream, some shredded cheese, and chives or broccoli.
  • Cut potatoes into strips, brush on a little olive oil and bake in the oven to make your own healthy French fries.
  • Slice potatoes in half and scoop out part of the flesh; brush with a little olive oil, sprinkle with paprika and bake to enjoy some healthy potato skins.
  • Chop up potatoes and sauté with onions and peppers.
