W is for White

Men's Health (UK) - - Eat Healthyish Macro Chef -

With the back­lash against clean eat­ing in full force, even that most re­viled of food groups – the white carb – is re­turn­ing to favour, with rice and spuds re-em­braced by the fit­ness com­mu­nity. A study in the jour­nal Plos One even rated white pota­toes as of­fer­ing among the best nu­tri­tion-to­cost ra­tios of any plant, due to its blood-pres­sure-low­er­ing potas­sium and vi­ta­mins B6 and C. Your or­der? Potato salad: spuds that have been cooked and then cooled are high in re­sis­tant starch, a kind of fi­bre that lim­its the pro­duc­tion of fat cells.
