love,


I'd add those, but Mrs. Lib doesn't like them.  At all.

Mrs. Lib is a very smart woman then. ;-)

Debatable.  She's been married to me for nearly 30 years.  That should tell you something.

Roodog,


Unfortunately I am and was raised Irish.  The potato is the basic staff of life.  (But I ususally cook and eat them with the skins on--not ALL white.)

CL--it's not only the Irish who look fondly on ptotatoes. It's a staple in many cuisines.


Having been raised with a great fondness for them myself I've done a lot of reading on them and it turns out that they have a lot of good going for them--including the skins which have a lot of trace minerals etc.


The problem--as I have heard and read so often--is mostly in the toppings people put on baked potatoes for example--cheese and sour cream and bacon etc etc,


That's what's given them their bad rap.  A baked potato without any toppings has a really modest calorie component.


I'll check on it and come back with the number.

Roo--I have a friend who was rather overweight and who lost 50+ pounds by eliminating a lot of white foods (including sour cream and cream cheese) from her diet. Her best example was using red sauces for spaghetti (which she loved) instead of white ones like Alfredo sauce.


The best part of her weight loss was that it was very gradual whic is supposed to be the best way to lose weight and keep it off. She has kept her weight off for a number of years now.

WG,


I know the number.  Depending on the size of the spud, it's about 130 calories, before toppings.


 


I can still remember, growing up, that for a family of 4, my mother would buy a 10 lb. bag of potatoes EVERY WEEK.
