Potatoes are my favourite. They are also one of my go-tos when I am cooking for someone who is nauseous from cancer treatment, well before we resort to toast and crackers (which is sometimes inevitable but temporary). I know better than to substitute cauliflower for the real deal (like in this really delicious, most of the time, Cauliflower No Potato Salad) in that crucial moment.
They are a little high on the glycemic index, which is why I think they get such a bad rap (their spin-offs, potato chips and French fries don’t help either). But if we leave the skins on (adding fiber) and serve them with some form of healthy fat (like the extra virgin olive oil in this dressing, fresh avocado or just a smear of extra virgin coconut oil), the overall glycemic load is lowered.
