My inspiration in life is to make delicious comfort food as healthy as possible. I mean, I don’t want to live my life not enjoying the fullness of food! It’s a gift to source, create, and consume food! I see it as an act of love, to myself, my family, and my friends.
Take this potato salad for example. When you cook and cool potatoes they transform into resistant starch. This creates less stress on blood sugar! Resistant starch is not digested in the small intestine, so it won’t raise glucose. Our guts need to be fed and resistant starch ferments in the large intestine feeding our good bacteria in the gut. Just this process of cooking and cooling potatoes has a HUGE impact on how our bodies respond to the potatoes. Isn’t that fascinating? I think so.
So the trick to making healthier potato salad, is to cook the potatoes in advance. I like to cool my potatoes for a minimum of 12 hours. Ideally, have the foresight to cook them the day before you plan to have this salad.
Let’s do this….
You can also slowly warm up potatoes to serve with sauteed veggies and fried eggs, add to your breakfast burrito bowl (recipe coming soon), or any other recipes requiring potatoes! The only trick is having the foresight to cook them a day before you use them!
Did you know about resistant starch? Will you try this recipe? I’d love to know!
