I’m kind of in love with the white potato. It’s taken a lock of flack over the years; people said it was unhealthy, it didn’t have a good nutrient profile, that it would spike your blood sugar, that it wasn’t as healthy as a sweet potato. You can read my article on white versus sweet potatoes HERE.

But the humble white potato will always be my favorite. For all the guff its taken, most of it is unfounded. The white potato isn’t just delicious, it actually is a healthy food! It’s a vegetable after all. It comes from the earth, it has vitamins and minerals, and it’s pretty damn healthy if you’re not frying it in vegetable oil.

So I combined my two loves: the white potato and Mexican food. I don’t love corn, and I don’t eat corn. So corn chips were definitely out. And potatoes worked out beautifully. #taterwin

These primal potato nachos are SO GOOD and a totally delicious alternative to restaurant-style nachos! The white potato isn’t just delicious, it actually is a healthy food! It’s a vegetable after all. It comes from the earth, it has vitamins and minerals, and it’s pretty damn healthy if you’re not frying it in vegetable oil.

  1. I love both white and sweet potats.
    Demonising white ones is ridiculous to me (if we are healthy, do not have autoimmune problems etc.).
