    It helps that we grow a few hundred pounds of different varieties and have a good storage protocol.

    The greek yogurt sounds good....No doubt more than just a sub but good in its own right.

    I like..... not that anyone cares .... but I like smashing my tator, putting 1/2 - 1 cup bone broth on it, (I mean bones & veggies all ground up too) and then I like to top it with my homemade kraut. I try to eat it once a day. I get lots of daily goodness all at one time.

    Sometimes I add some kind of meat.

    Yeah I'd be willing to bet a significant amount of money that it wasn't the potatoes but the processed food that was not helping with weight loss haha. Potatoes are one of the most satisfying foods known to man so unless you're sensitive it'd be silly not to include them in a weight loss plan! And I'm not talking about creamy buttery mashed potatoes which could clearly lead to over eating, but simple baked potatoes.

    What frustrates me about the potato pushers is your arrogant assumption that other people's experience does not count.

    After a lifetime of trying, I lost the weight I needed to lose in the only way that worked for me ...low carb. A potato would stop weight loss or even give me a gain. Now after over three years of maintening my low weight, my metabolism has healed enough that I've been able to increase carbs somewhat. Please stop assuming that everyone's body works as yours does.

    What frustrates me, is why someone can't just make a statement like... "I'd be willing to bet"... and then state their belief.... w/o someone else jumping all over them.

    Argh, I can't stand this. Seems like every thread in the nutrition sections turns to fisticuffs. Primal is supposed to make us happy healthy beings, not forum monsters looking for a fight.

    Sorry you're offended by my comment, Gopintos. It is just that I've grown weary of being told I should be able to eat foods that I and so many others find we can't.
