Did you know...

...that the white potato, that versatile vegetable--a staple on the American plate, is the least nutritious vegetable? It is, according to John Fuhrman in Eat to Live (or in my preference, audio).

I love potatoes. And it is a reciprocated love affair. They love me too. They show they love me. In very visible ways.

And, did you know that the typical American diet consists of 40% meat, eggs, and dairy, with only 5% fruits and vegetables?

I am seeking to change that in my diet. Or at least I've tried to change that for the past three weeks. Updates when visible changes begin.
