FUN FACT- My Dad used to call me spud as a kid. As a family, we had a favorite restaurant in town (New Berlin Family Restaurant <— I grew up in New Berlin, WI) and I would order (I kid you not):

  • A Baked Potato
  • Hash Browns
  • And steal my sisters fries

I am thinking about changing all of my social media handles to FitFoodie_Spud. I wonder if they are taken ;)

Guys.

Top your taters with something protein and fiber-filled and it will cancel out the starchiness of the potato. Uh…I think.

That’s what I do at least! I also top it with some plain Greek yogurt, a sprinkle of low fat cheese, avocado and about a cup of salsa (not pictured).

PS: I am out of the country for the next week! I left yesterday for Nelson, BC Canada to spend a week at the Mountain Trek Resort. So just take this as my Out of Office Response for the next 7 days. You can follow my adventure on Instagram where I will be capturing the beautiful scenery of BC (we’re talking hot springs, mountains, and more!) .
