Throwback to this meal: waffle cut potatoes using my @oxo mandolin slicer, and the amazing cheese sauce recipe from @holistically_thriving
I could eat this every night and be happy 🤗 Listen halwady through for Sandy’s whine 😆
Potatoes get a bad rap. The truth is the potatoes aren’t the problem, it’s the way they are prepared or what they are served with which becomes the problem. They are often fried in toxic oil, with cheese sauce on top, and sometimes with butter, milk and cream mashed in. Potatoes don’t cause health issues, what is served with them or how they are prepared does.
The entire potato is valuable for your health. Potatoes draw some of the highest concentration of macro and and trace minerals from the earth. They are also high in potassium, B6, and amino acids, especially lysine. Lysine is a powerful weapon against cancers, liver disease, inflammation, and the viruses such as Epstein-Barr and shingles that are behind rheumatoid arthritis, joint pain, autoimmune disease, and more. Potatoes will be your allies if you’re looking to fight any chronic illness—to fend off liver disease, strengthen your kidneys, soothe your nerves and digestive tract, and reverse Crohn’s, colitis, IBS, or peptic ulcers.
In addition to being antiviral, they’re antifungal and antibacterial, with nutritional cofactors and coenzymes plus bioactive compounds to keep you healthy and assist you with stress. Further, potatoes are brain food that helps keep you grounded and centered.
