This post is sponsored by Potatoes, but all opinions are my own.
My clients are always surprised when I tell them that potatoes are a VEGETABLE. Everyone knows potatoes are delicious, but rarely do people understand just how many nutrients they contain.
Bottom line: Potatoes are a nutrient-dense VEGGIE that provide nutrients to fuel your day. Here are their impressive nutrition stats…
One medium 5.3 oz potato with the skin has:
✅Energy (only 110 calories)
✅Potassium (more than a medium banana; potato 620mg vs banana 450mg)
✅Vitamin B6 (a good source)
✅Vitamin C (an excellent source)
Plus 2g fiber, 3g protein, and 1.1mg iron.
Potatoes are especially important in an ACTIVE LIFESTYLE because they contain quality carbohydrate. Carbohydrates are the primary fuel for your BRAIN, key source of energy for MUSCLES, and important for optimal physical & mental PERFORMANCE.
I eat potatoes to help me fuel my mental performance during the work day and my physical performance for activities I love like:
✨hot girl walks/jogs
✨weight lifting & HIIT classes
