Baked Potato Ideas

A quick word on solanine:


Solanine in potatoes is that greenish tint you’ve probably seen before, and especially around the peels. It’s present in nightshades and can be toxic, so best avoided. Since solanine thrives in light, store potatoes in a cool dark place.

Homemade Baked Potatoes

Organic baked potatoes are super healthy.

According to one report, baked potatoes reduce inflammation, mitigate gut issues, and can help you lose weight

But what really rocks are purple potatoes.

According to Nutritionfacts.org:   

Pigmented potato consumption also alters oxidative stress. Within hours of eating a large purple potato, you get a nice 60 percent bump in the antioxidant power of your bloodstream, and this translates into less free radical DNA damage. If you compare the antioxidant activity of white potatoes, yellow potatoes, and purple potatoes, Yukon gold has about twice the antioxidant power as white, but purple has twenty times the antioxidants. This is comparable to what you might see in berries. A half of a purple potato has about the same polyphenol antioxidant complement as a half cup of blueberries.

Purple potatoes can increase the antioxidant capacity of our bloodstream, whereas straight white potato starch can act as a pro-oxidant and decrease it. Eat a purple potato, and over the next eight hours the antioxidant capacity of your blood stream goes up. In contrast, if you eat white potato starch devoid of any pigment, you can end up worse off than where you started. 

So when you’re out shopping spuds, think nutrient-dense.
