Are Red Potatoes Healthier Than White Potatoes
I am 8 weeks pregnan with twins I am extremely nauseous I can't keep much down i have started craving raw red potatoes is it bad for me to eat them?
No, they are ok: The nutritional value of a potato is actually greater when it is eaten raw. It contains vitamin C, B6 and niacin. Curiously, raw potatoes are known as a food craved by pregnant woman. Be very careful to wash the potato carefully. Good luck with the nausea (and the twins!) ...Read more
Ate undercooked, pretty much raw red skin potatoes. Didn't see it as a concern until a friend mentioned it's unsafe. Any side effects I should lookfor?
Could I catch something from smelling a bad potato? My nose was burning after. No mold that I could see. Just kinda brown, but red potatoes.
9 month old stuck her hand in my hot potatoes on my plate, no blister so far just really red. Will she be OK?
First Degree Burn: If you are seeing red skin but no blister this is going to be a first degree burn. I would just put a dab of neosporin on it tonight and take a look at it in the morning. Babies can move fast! Take this opportunity to start thinking about safeproofing the house and plan to have it complete by babies first birthday! Splash burns are common as they start to toddle! She will be fine! ...Read more

Bake: Baked potato is the healthiest way to prepare them. You can also microwave a potato in the oven for 4-5 minutes depending on the size of the potato. I don't recommend frying in oil or adding sour creme or butter. ...Read more

Put them in a plastic bag with some olive oil and shake to coat them. (you can use a bowl if you wish.) Bake in a 400 degree oven until done. Season to taste and enjoy. ...Read more
I have made a sweet potato baked on a sheet of aluminum foil at least 4-5 nights a week for the past two years. Will that have a lasting health effect?
Not likely: I trust that you are not eating the skin on the sweet potato. The amount of aluminum getting into the food is not likely to cause a lasting effect even if you ate the skin. Just to be sure you may wish to wrap the potato in paper suitable for baking (parchment paper) and then wrap it in aluminum. ...Read more

Steam cauliflower, then add above ingredients & blend to a whipped texture. If needed add more milk. Add salt/pepper to taste and enjoy.
