No Small Potatoes
Due to the antioxidants they contain, potatoes are an excellent food keeping your heart healthy.
The potato skin possesses the ability to absorb toxins which otherwise would remain in our system and could cause cancer in the future.
For our brain to function properly it depends on certain nutrients such as glucose, magnesium, vitamin B, amino and fatty acids, which are all found in potatoes.
Inflammations, in- as well as external, are quickly relieved due to the health properties provided by this staple. It therefore would be helpful eating a few more spuds when you experience a (rheumatoid) arthritis flare-up.
As we grow older and the signs of aging are starting to dull, discolor, and grace our appearance with wrinkles, potatoes can clear it up. Mix crushed raw potatoes with honey. Apply this mixture to the skin and it will take care of those nooks, crannies, and other blemishes caused by aging.
Keep in mind the health benefits concern plain, boiled potatoes and not the fries, the chips, and the butter or sour cream drenched baked ones, because those do more harm than good.
It seems like we are becoming more obsessed these days with what we consume. That is not bad, because not everything is healthy for us. We should keep in mind though that there is more to life than just the food on our table and we should remember that when we say grace.
There is a whole lot more to be thankful for!
for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.
