      If baked whole yes, but more often I'm steaming or sautéeing small (peeled) pieces

        Never. They taste like dirty cardboard to me, not sure why anyone eats them. I don't eat regular potato skins either.

          Nah. Supposedly less toxic than the skins of white potatoes but I still avoid it. It's the potatoe's only defense against organisms in the soil...

            I eat them both; earthy and delicious.

              Sweet potatoes seem more nutritious. But russet potatoes fit my budget better.

                I disagree. Sweet potatoes have lower quality protein and more oxalate.

                  Nutrition wise, it's almost six of one, half dozen of the other. Except for VitA. If you don't get much A in your food, and liver disturbs you, the sweets would be better. Also, russet is a nightshade and sweet isn't, so if you have nightshade sensitivities, sweet is better.

                  I like Russet/other "white" varieties better purely for taste.

                    Sour cream, lemon juice & garlic mixed as a dressing (play till you get the right consistency, can add water as well) is yummy on a salad of potatoes, egg & spring onions (or red onions). Salt and pepper to taste (if wanted).

                      Like most everyone else, I'm also all for potatoes. They are delicious and have plenty of good things going for them even though they are not primal. I prefer white/regular potatoes to sweet potatoes but they're all good. The skins of potatoes (not sure about sweet potatoes) have a lot of toxins so be sure to peel them. All cultures that traditionally subsist on potatoes remove the skins.

                      BTW you can buy a 5-lb bag of organic potatoes at Whole Foods for less than the price of most regular potatoes! And that's another thing... potatoes are a highly pesticide-ridden crop so be sure to get organic. Sweet potatoes, though, are apparently very low in pesticides.
