Potatoes come in all sizes and shapes, all with varying nutritional content. Some of our favorites? Regular, sweet potatoes and purple potatoes! Sweet potatoes are high in beta-carotene, an antioxidant that promotes eye health. Purple potatoes are VERY high in antioxidants, to help to protect your body and preserve it so that you have long lasting energy! Plus, they’ve got carbohydrates and fiber to help their energy boost last longer.

A 3.5 ounce potato is about 100 calories. On the other hand , less than one ounce of potato chips has about 140 calories. So we’re always trying to lighten them up to keep potato chips low in calories.
