Ah, the potato. Possibly the most well known root vegetable in the world (well, after the carrot). The low-carb craze has villified the poor potato, and I'd like to just lay down some facts for you all. Lets put the potato in a good light - it deserves it.
1. YES potatoes ARE a carb-filled food! This is a good thing! Your body couldn't function without carbs. If you need to, take a moment to re-read that. I can wait..... There are two different types of carbs - bad carbs (simple carbs) and good carbs (complex carbohydrates).
