I follow The Today Show on twitter. I have a small obsession with Matt Lauer, Meredith Viera, Al and my real favorite, Natalie Morales (she is an athlete =)).
Anywhoo, on twitter the other day it read something like, "too Scared to eat mashed potatoes because you might gain weight? Try Mashed Cauliflower" and to that statement, I say HOG WASH! No offense to Cauliflower but there is nothing wrong with potatoes, even if they are mashed and mixed with some butter and milk.
There are TONS of delicious foods out there so why deprive yourself? Eat in moderation, exercise and enjoy. Before cutting the calories I say hit the gym! Find inspiration and stay motivated.
This lovely meal is a family favorite! Chicken Curry, warms the insides and has potatoes as an ingredient. Enjoy.
Recipe as Follows:
1lb cubed chicken
3-4 carrots chopped
4-5 medium potatoes cubed
1pkg Golden Curry Sauce mix
Boil chicken, carrots and potatoes with enough water to barely cover until potatoes are tender. Turn heat to low, mix in sauce mix and pour over white rice. Eat up, it is Scrumptious.
