Look, I love potatoes. Baked potatoes, mashed potatoes, scalloped potatoes, french fries, chips… you name it, I’ll eat it. They’re absolutely delicious. Perhaps they’re not the healthiest but they do have their share of nutrients.
Potatoes contain vitamin C and D, as well as minerals such as calcium, potassium, zinc and magnesium. Not too shabby! This starchy tuberous crop is also easily accessible for most people, relatively inexpensive, and easily stored for months!
But if you’re still a potato hater, here’s some news that will turn your world upside-down: the humble potato can be used to produce enough electricity to keep a room lit for over a month! That’s right… potato power is a thing!
