No Small Potatoes

Potatoes have been a staple food for thousands of years. That doesn't come as a surprise, because they are highly nutritious, easy to digest, and boost our energy. They are also high in vitamin B3, vitamin B6, potassium, copper, vitamin C, manganese, phosphorus, fiber, and pantothenic acid.

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!

Romans 14:17
for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.

It's difficult for my big, fat hands to peel the potato skin with the peeler. Hee! Hi Lieve Zus! :)

Audrey,
It's difficult for my crooked hands to peel the potato skin with a peeler, but... we can scrub them clean and boil them in the peel. It is delicious and healthy too. If you don't like to eat the skin than it is very easy to remove after the potatoes are boiled.

Audrey,
You are most welcome, lieve zus.

We have been so busy. We are taking care of our oldest grandson Casey and that takes up a lot of our time and attention. We are most happy and grateful to do so though!!! :-D

Mark,
Sorry to hear you are struggling with RA. From experience I know it is difficult, but God will not put more on us then we can bear and He gives what is needed when it is needed.

May God bless you abundantly.

God's Grace.
