🔥MYTH 🔥!

🥔Both types of potatoes can be healthy choices for your diet, depending on how they are prepared (i.e., not fried!) and your portion sizes.

👉The facts … when it comes to calories, protein, and carbs, they are similar in their content.

💡But … white potatoes have more potassium and anti-cancer compounds called glycoalkaloids.

Potatoes that have been cooked then cooled (hello potato salad!) also contain something called “resistant starch,” which is an indigestible gut-friendly compound that helps you feel full.

💡Meanwhile, sweet potatoes have a lot of vitamin A and antioxidants. They also are a little lower on the glycemic index, which means they make your blood sugar rise more slowly than white potatoes.

👍THE TAKEAWAY: You can enjoy both kinds of potatoes as part of a balanced and healthy diet.

Which are you favorite!? Let me know below!
