Baked Potato - Did You Know?

Let me start off by saying, "Diabetics Beware"! Potatoes are high in starch which quickly turns into sugar in the body. If you choose to eat a baked potato, have it with a lean protein source rather than making it your whole meal.

Did you know that a small to medium simple baked potato seasoned only with a pinch of salt and a teaspoon of olive oil can supply you with heart-healthy potassium and magnesium, around 3 grams of fiber, and the important immune boosting B vitamins?
