GO EAT... POTATOES.
Packed with vitamins and minerals, as well as slow release energy, potatoes are naturally healthy in every way.
They keep you fuller for longer - the starchy carbohydrate in potatoes takes longer to digest, so their slow release energy is great for keeping hunger pangs at bay.
They contain virtually no fat and or no cholesterol and have fewer calories than pasta or rice - a portion of Charlotte potatoes contains 115 calories compared to 228.8 for rice and 248.4 for pasta.
Potatoes are a good source of vitamin C and B. A jacket potato contains 50% of the RDA of vitamin B6, and Thiamine.
