So, are potatoes healthy? The diet fad marketers have done a remarkable job at hoodwinking the American public into thinking that potatoes are unhealthy.
It’s not the potato – it’s what you put on it. Yes, if you load it with butter, sour cream, cheese, bacon bits and/or animal fat gravy, you have made it unhealthy.
I had a hard time keeping my mouth shut at the gym earlier this week. I overheard a personal trainer lecturing one of her clients about the horrors of potatoes. And then, she started promoting a protein drink. (sigh 🙁 )

Are Potatoes Healthy? The Surprising Truth About This Controversial Vegetable
Food Revolution Network, August 15, 2018: “in a study published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition in 2014, researchers found that when people followed healthy recipes, they lost weight even while eating five to seven servings of potatoes per week.
So it looks like potatoes are no weight loss panacea. But it also seems that their preparation, what you eat with them, and how they fit into your overall diet is what matters.”

How to Enjoy Potatoes the Healthy Way
Food Revolution Network, August 15, 2018: “When it comes to lowering your glycemic load and maximizing your nutritional profile, sweet potatoes are the clear winner. And whichever type of potato you eat, the best way to maximize the health potential of potatoes is to eat them whole with the skin on.
If you’re looking for something lighter and more nutritious to put on your potatoes, here are some healthier toppers to try on your baked potato or sweet potato:
- Use salsa instead of sour cream. Use this healthy, tomato-based mix to top your potato instead of sour cream. It adds a spicy kick, and there are only 17 calories in a ¼ cup.
- Add nutritional yeast to boost the protein and nutrients. Instead of cheese, opt for this cheesy-tasting, savory, nutrient-dense topping.
- Make it a meal with vegetarian chili. While chili-topped baked potatoes are a classic favorite, traditional beef chili has all the problems that typically come with modern meat. Try this recipe for Loaded Veggie Chili from Veggie Quest and fill up on beans, onions, and bell peppers, instead!”
