what are some foods I can make with mash potatoes?
I love mash potatoes but they taste boring by themselves so what are some things I can add or eat it with?
You can add many different toppings to mashed potatoes. Just think of things that you would want on a loaded baked potato or baked potato skins. Mix in those some ingredients to mashed potatoes for a similar flavor combination. Any of the things listed below taste great mixed with mashed potatoes.
Chicken or beef gravy
buttered sweet corn
diced onion or chives
shredded cheddar cheese
sun dried tomatoes
cubed deli meats (roast beef, ham, or turkey)
taco seasoned ground beef
shredded buffalo chicken breasts
barbecue pulled pork
sausage or dried beef gravy
diced sausage links
Mashed potatoes make a great side dish for dinners as well. Consider serving them with cheese stuffed meatballs, salisbury steaks, beef stroganoff, meatloaf, fried chicken, or roasted turkey.
Which foods are good/healthy to eat when you’re on a diet?
I am planning to go on a diet starting this month [or after getting answers from you people] and I don’t really know how to start. My ultimate goal actually is to lose about 20 pounds. I heard that fruits are good because they help detoxify the body but I am also worrying about its sugar contents… Diabetes runs in the family you see. Please advise me on what to do.
As a whole plant vegan who avoids refined carbohydrates, I find a previous recommendation misleading and inaccurate. Animal protein and fats are unhealthy and lead to cancers, diabetes, heart disease, and obesity. Read a book called “The China Study” for details. Here is how I’d breakdown the foods:
- Margarine, oils, fats, lard, dressings.
- Refined carbohydrates, white breads, white pasta
- Sugar, high fructose corn syrup, artificial sweeteners, honey
- Baloney, hot dogs, deli meats.
- Lean deli meats (turkey, chicken, ham, roast beef, etc…)
- Meat alternatives (eggs, nuts, peanut butter, etc…) In particular peanut butter can be contaminated with a common carcinogen known to cause liver cancers. Although rare in the US, it’s not uncommon in other countries.
- Low-fat dairy (skim- 1% milk, low-fat yogurt, cottage cheese, 2oz of cheese, cheese string, light laughing cow cheese, light cream cheese) Dairy is very dangerous and not required for a healthy diet.
- REFINED Wheat pasta with tomato sauce (not cream sauces)
- COMMERCIAL Soups (vegetable/ broth based- not cream)
- COMMERCIAL Wheat/ Grain bread/ wholegrain crackers
- Wholegrain/ fiber cereal- granola
- QUICK OR INSTANT Oatmeal
- Canned baked beans (in syrup)
- Grilled chicken or other grilled meats
+ Leafy Green Vegetables (instead of dairy)
+ Brown rice or whole grains (unrefined)
+ Dried fruit, whole fruit, berries, etc…
+ Whole vegetables WITHOUT COMMERCIAL DIP
+ A limited quantity of seeds and nuts.
+ An omega-3 source and B-12 vitamins.
+ Get sunshine or buy vitamin D, but don’t exceed recommendations on this.
