Potatoes Provide Incomparable Nutrient Value for Less Than 25 Cents A

Serving

DENVER, Oct. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Consumer research just released by consulting firm Booz & Company confirmed that U.S. consumers have cut back spending significantly over the past six months and that more than one third of consumers have made measurable cutbacks in frequent purchases, such as dining out. That means more home-cooked meals and the opportunity to prepare healthier food. Contrary to popular belief, fresh produce doesn't have to break the food budget, particularly if you count on potatoes.

Potatoes, a mainstay of traditional diets for centuries, contain essential vitamins and minerals, fiber, and antioxidants and are fat-, sodium- and cholesterol free. Even better, one serving -- a medium (5.3 ounce) potato will only set you back about 25 cents. Pound for pound, potatoes are still one of the least expensive items in the produce department.

It's easy to keep this vegetable as healthy as it was when it was pulled from the ground. Just keep food "partner" ingredients nutritious, too. Top a baked potato with jarred salsa, low-fat cheese, or shredded rotisserie chicken. Or, top a mound of mashed potatoes prepared with nonfat chicken broth with ratatouille or another mixture of sauteed seasonal vegetables. Add olive- oil and garlic roasted potatoes to a green salad to make it more satisfying.
