Which Potato Should You Grow?
They’re both wonderful foods with rich histories. We prepare them both in a staggering variety of different recipes. We eat them boiled, roasted, mashed, dried, baked, fried, and in salad. But which one is better for us to eat?
An epic battle is shaping up – it’s White Potato vs Sweet Potato. You won’t find this fight on pay-per-view – but you can watch all the action in the infographic below from the Cleveland Clinic…
More White Potato vs Sweet Potato Action
You probably don’t need to say goodbye to your Irish potatoes entirely…
Even though the Cleveland Clinic called the fight for sweet potatoes, the decision is not unanimous. The folks over at Precision Nutrition made their own infographic, and according to them, this fight is an even draw. They make the case that the white potato is just as nutritious and beneficial as the sweet potato (except for vitamin A, of course).
What I really like about this other infographic is that they put plenty of emphasis on the way the potatoes are prepared. As they point out, you should really consider the prepared dish as a whole, and if you smother your potatoes in cream, butter, and cheese – you’re really not just talking about potatoes anymore.
