German Potato Salad

Potatoes! Whether roasted, baked or mashed; most people consider it as a comfort food. It is a number one vegetable crop in the whole world and is available year-round and harvested every month of the year. It originated in the Andean mountain region of South America. According to researchers, the estimated time potatoes were cultivated by the Indians living in the area runs between 4,000 and 7,000 years. So therefore, potatoes became a staple food for most hardy people.

I've got a question for you, do you love eating potatoes? If yes, do you know the health benefits you will gain when eating it? OK, let me give you a brief idea about it. Potatoes are popular food source. Sadly, a lot of people eat it in a form of greasy French fries, potato chips, and even those baked ones that are loaded with fats such as sour cream, melted cheese, butter, and bacon bits. In fact, these foods I mentioned are a probable contributor to a heart attack and cancer. Oh sorry! Did I just scare you with that? BUT, if you take away the extra fat and the deep frying procedure, a baked potato is remarkably a healthy low calorie and high fiber food that offers major protection against cancer and cardiovascular disease.

OK now, since the weekend is fast approaching and weekends are the perfect time to bond and relax with family, friends, and colleagues.
