National Potato Day
Today is no ordinary day….It is National Potato Day! This day definitely ranks in the top days of the year right with National French Fry day (July 13) and National Potato Chip Day (March 14). Potatoes in all of their forms are one of the most common staples that can be found at any meal on someone’s plate. From baked, to mashed, to fried and more! The ways to prepare and enjoy the world’s favorite vegetable are endless.
Not only is the versatility of potatoes second to none they are also very nutritious. In fact a study out of the University of Washington found that potatoes provide the best nutritional value in the entire produce section! So just remember potatoes don’t have their own national day of celebration for nothing…..the nutrient found in each tuber is cause for celebration.
