What’s fashionably white, budget-friendly, and healthy?
Give up? Potatoes! Potatoes are important for heart health, because they contain fabulous amounts of fiber, potassium, and vitamin C. Eat and enjoy. These nutrients may help lower blood pressure and lipid levels.
Since potatoes are low in calories, they are a great way to fill up and not out. Instead of dousing your baked potatoes with high-calorie sour cream and butter, try Italian dressing made with olive oil. Not only does the salad dressing add lots of flavor, the olive oil is a heart healthy type of fat. Did you know that the white part of potatoes also contains fiber?
Try this recipe for a healthier version of nachos using our new food friends – potatoes!

Now that the holidays are over, have you had the courage to step on a scale? Feeling a little dazed?
It’s alright. It takes a strong person to resist holiday goodies. Even though the average weight gain is 1 or 2 pounds, some people gain 5 or 6 pounds. The problem is that those pesky pounds add up over time.
It’s the start of a new year. Get back on track ASAP, before the extra baggage becomes permanent.
- Come up with a plan and be consistent. It’s always a good idea to set goals.
- Does your sweet tooth get the best of you? Once you bite into a mouth-watering chocolate, can you stop at just one? If it’s “all or nothing”, nothing may be the better choice for now.
- Negative thoughts do not belong in your head. Blow any existing negativity into an imaginary balloon, and let it float into space.
You are in it to win it.
