Roasted fingerling potatoes

Yellow, red & blue potatoes seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic and a little bit of fresh rosemary from my garden. Toss in olive oil and bake in the oven for about 30 minutes.

I'm confused about whether potatoes are healthy are not. I know they're high in starchy carbs which can lead to weight gain, especially for people like me who don't tolerate carbs as well as others. But I also know that they have a good amount of vitamin C and I always leave the skin on which has all the nutrients and fiber. Are they toxic because they're in the nightshade family of vegetables? Is potato really a vegetable? I suppose it's all about moderation. Well... I cooked the potatoes so I guess I have to eat them! Yum!


  1. Just make sure you buy organic...potatoes are on the high pesticide list.

  2. Thanks for the tip! I had no idea how high they were on the pesticide list. Though potatoes is one of the foods I always try to buy organic. Thx also for stopping by! :-)
