Healthy Eating Recipe : Terrific Trio U.S Potatoes Salad

November 14, 2017

Home cooked meals are always the nutrient powerhouses, do you agree with me? 
Most of the restaurant food will short-change you nutritionally, but if you make your own meal, you can choose your preferred fresh or organic ingredients, you can make sure your every bite can delivers loads of bio-available, health-supporting nutrients.
Furthermore, eating a healthy home cooked meal can put you on the fast track to a healthier and fitter you.  
Need a quick health fix? I created a healthy and super-easy recipe because recently i have join "U.S. Potato Goodness Fiesta" cooking competition which organised by the Potatoes USA. I don't cook that often, but doesn't mean i not good at cooking. For my recipe, you don’t have to be spending a lot of time cooking but it is healthy and tasty food.
It’s a misconception that the potato is a fattening food, potatoes are one of the most filling foods available and also can be part of a weight management regimen. It’s calories that count, not eliminating a certain food. 
Do you know ONE medium-sized 148gram fresh potato provides : 
• Just 110 calories 
• No fat, no sodium, no cholesterol 
• 30% of your daily value of vitamin C 
• More potassium than a banana (15% of daily value)
U.S. processors use state-of-the-art technology to meet high industry standards. The finished product is instantly quick-frozen to lock in the flavour and nutrients of fresh potatoes. There are different varieties of U.S. frozen potatoes that are available in Malaysia, you can find them in the supermarkets and hypermarkets. 
There are so many varieties of US fresh and frozen potatoes that can be easily prepared in under 30 minutes to keep your meals interesting. You can bake, mash or boil the U.S. potatoes and pair with any protein. 
As we all know one medium-sized (148gram) potato is just 110 calories but can provide 30% of your daily value of vitamin C and more potassium than a banana! So i put all 3 types of U.S. fresh potatoes (U.S Russets U.S Red Potatoes, U.S Purple / Blue Potatoes) in my recipe for the naturally nutrient-dense and mix with other ingredients (with different nutrient) to make my meals looks interesting and colourful. I want my dish to be healthier but without losing the taste, at the meanwhile easy to prepare for all of you.
