KNOW YOUR POTATOES WELL
30 December 2017
 We always think of potatoes as fatty vegetables but what we do not know is that if potatoes are eaten in the right form, can actually prove to be a weight loss vegetable.So typically we like our potatoes warm, for instance, any curry where potatoes are involved. Even a salad, if it has potatoes, is preferred to be had warm. But the fact remains that if you eat your potatoes cold as in straight out of the refrigerator, their digestible starches turn into resistant starches through a process called retrogradation. Now the resistant starch resists digestion, which in turn encourages oxidation, which finally leads to fat reduction. Aversion to the mere thought of eating potatoes cold is understandable and there are various ways of overcoming this problem . You could just bake your potatoes first, then cool them down and make it in the form of a salad combining them with a few interesting greens such as rocket, spinach, lettuce, iceberg, etc adding a bit of greek yogurt and cream. Season with salt, pepper and olive oil. You could even add a dash of honey to give it an interesting twist.
