Potatoes get a bad reputation (mainly because the way 90% of them are eaten in this country—as French fries and potato chips—not as the whole unprocessed food!), but on their own, they are a great source of vitamin B6 (helps to relieve stress and tension) and potassium which helps balance sodium, control blood pressure and flush bloat– plus other amazing nutrients like copper and vitamin C (helps to form collagen—hello younger looking healthy skin and a strong immune system)! So no reason to feel guilty eating these 105 Calories Healthy Potato Cakes. Top them with Greek yogurt or eat them with a lean protein like fish and a salad or steamed veggies!
