These Roasted Potatoes are GREAT if you like to prep ahead. They really taste amazing when roasted and it’s best to let them cook and not rush the glorious process.
The Right Potato for Your Lifestyle
Potatoes, in general, are high Carbohydrates, which digests into glucose, a form of sugar. The glucose is stored in your body as energy and your body will draw on those energy stores as you are active throughout the day.
If you’re not moving throughout the day, this sugar can build up over time and turn into other very unpleasant things, like triglycerides and fat.
You may consider replacing the red potatoes with sweet potatoes or mixing the two together. Sweet potatoes pack in more nutrition and provide additional benefits to your body than red or white potatoes.
You can also trick your digestion by eating potatoes with protein and fat, and drinking water.
This helps slow down the digestion of your meal, keeps you full and satisfied for longer, and reduces the blood-sugar spike from the potatoes.
Experiment and find what works best for you and your body.
