The Humble Potato

Healthy Prepared Meals | Toronto Food Delivery | Low Carbohydrate

 

We are constantly inundated with messages about the foods we should or should not eat. Let’s take a deeper look into the humble potato. At Honey Bee Meals, a Toronto meal delivery service, we include a variety of foods in our healthy prepared meals to provide allergy-friendly meals fit for every diet.  

All food that we eat is made up of one or a combination of three types of macronutrients: protein, carbohydrate and fat and our body requires each type.   Understanding what foods contain what macronutrients can help you make informed decisions about the food you choose to eat.  Consulting a nutritionist or dietician is a great way to determine what mix of macronutrients would be best for you to meet your nutritional and overall goals. 

Carbohydrates are compounds that contain carbon, hydrogen and oxygen. They are fast burning sources of energy and are broken down into glucose (the main source of fuel for our cells). Carbohydrates are necessary in providing energy to our body.

At Honey Bee Meals, potatoes are used as one of the ingredients in our healthy carbohydrate prepared meals. When potatoes are properly prepared, and consumed in quantities fit for each individual, potatoes can be an excellent addition to your diet.

Cooked potatoes with skin are a good source of many vitamins and minerals, such as potassium, Vitamin C and Vitamin B. They also contain fiber and protein but almost no fat! Potatoes are often very satiating and delicious, which is why they are included in our healthy carbohydrate meals. 

If you are trying to determine if potatoes should be a part of your healthy diet, keep in mind your current activity levels, other health factors as well as your short- and long-term goals.

If you live in the GTA and are interested in our fully prepared meals delivered right to your door but choose to steer away from potatoes, we have you covered! We feature a full menu of low carbohydrate prepared meals in addition to our Classic and Plant Based options each week.
