Stock up on: Potatoes

So here’s the thing, most of the above-mentioned ways to cook potatoes are perfectly fine for dieters.

You see, potatoes are REALLY good for you.

They are packed with energy, fibre, and so many nutrients that it’s hard to list them all. Suffice it to say that if you had to choose one food to exist on for the rest of your life the humble potato would be about the best choice from a nutritional standpoint.

You need to have potatoes in your fridge at all times for a couple of reasons

The comfort factor is one – just exclude the deep fried and chipped versions and you’ll be fine. The other reason is that a baked potato is a VERY easy meal to make, and will fill you up and satisfy you like almost nothing else.

A great meal option is a baked potato with a teaspoon of butter and a large salad. Highly nutritious and filling. Plus it’s tasty, and won’t upset your stomach due to weird chemicals and things.

Potatoes, like all fruits and veggies, are also very cheap, so you gets lots for your money.
