Potatoes are Healthy AND Cheap! #tastemaker challenge part 2

This month’s Potato Tastemaker 2K10 challenge was Nutrition on a Budget. I had to create a nutritious dish for 4 with only $10 – using potatoes of course!

First, a few facts about potatoes:

  • one medium-size potato has just 110 calories and is absolutely fat free
  • one potato provides 45% of your daily value of vitamin C
  • when eaten with the skin, a potato has more potassium than a banana
  • potatoes are often one of the best values in the produce department, costing (on average), just $.25 per pound

For more potato goodness, tips, and recipes, check out Mom’s Dinner Helper from the US Potato Board.

Now, watch and see what I created:

Make sure you click over to the ModernMami.com YouTube channel and rank the video. You’ll have to sign in, but it’s super easy and free to create a YouTube account if you don’t already have one.

Here’s how to rank the video:

  • View the ModernMami #tastemaker challenge 2 video at YouTube. Just click that link to go there.
  • Sign in with your YouTube account or Google account; either works.
  • Click the stars under the video to rank it.

That’s it!

Make sure to spread the word to your friends!

Rank the video. Pretty please?


Don’t remember what I made for part 1 of the challenge? I showed you how to make rellenos de papa…with a salmon twist.

Disclosure: As a Potato Tastemaker challenger, for round 2 of the challenge, I was provided with $10 for creating my dish. Additionally, I received a few kitchen gadgets and a recipe book. No other compensation received.

Amazing blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers? I’m planning to
start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options
out there that I’m totally confused .. Any tips? Thank you!

While this effect can greatly improve a relatively blah image, try to avoid using one.
A good team will plan rushes together and try to stick together.
