getting tired of sweet potatoes.. which is better, white or red?
all, with butter, sour cream, cheese, and chives
fuck i love baked potatoes
White of course
the distilled kind
I'm calling BS too, no one gets tired of sweet potatoes.
potatoes are my favorite food.. I have red or yellow potatoes every morning for breakfast (depending on what my company's cafeteria is serving)
with that said, a russet potato is great for baking while red potatoes are awesome for boiling or steaming.
i love to boil red potatoes, slice them thin, add a little bit of olive oil/salt/pepper, then grill them up on high heat.
best potato chips EVAR
Sweet potatoes gives me gas.
haHA, genetics owns you
Depends what you're looking to do.
From a health standpoint red potatoes are really no better than white potatoes except that they are slightly less starchy (hence why they don't bake well).
I would just switch it up so that you don't get bored. Use sweet potatoes for whatever purpose you have been, use white or russet potatoes for baking (in oven or on grill) as well as mashing, and then use the red potatoes to steam and or boil and eat them in quarters or halves with some olive oil and herbs.
If you're trying to cut down you can attempt to keep a majority of your potato consumption post-workout, but the difference between a red potato and a sweet potato is not going to break your diet.
good job reading.
Anyone try sweet potato fried?
Worth the gas and stomach cramps.
There's a restaurant down here that has Sweet Potato Fries instead of French Fries..and instead of Ketchup, you use Marshmallow Sauce
sweet potato fries are gods gift to man. i would eat those things by the barrel if they weren't... you know, fried.
love the mashed version at boston market mixed heavily with marshmallows and brown sugar... 1-2x a week mmm
you know what? fuck you. I have a boston market 2 blocks from me... and now I may have to take a fucking walk.
