We read this blurb about potatoes in the Urban Digs newsletter:

All About Potatoes

The potato is probably one of the most universally used vegetables. Originating in Peru, the potato is now the world's fourth largest food crop, and it's easy to see why. You can bake them, fry them, add them to soups, stews and curries, put them in a salad, and pair them with nearly any flavour. Eating potatoes is not only enjoyable, but entirely good for you contrary to many unfounded claims. A serving of potatoes will provide you with 45% of your daily vitamin C intake, and more potassium than a banana, spinach or broccoli. Potatoes are also very good natural sources of both soluble and insoluble fiber, one of the richest vegetables sources of B-complex vitamins, and contain essential minerals like Iron, manganese, magnesium, phosphorous and copper. All under 110 calories, with very little fat (just 0.1 g per 100 g) and no cholesterol!

So basically, potatoes are great.
