Of course, the primary purpose of this diet is to eliminate all sources of extra calories from your diet and rely on the nutritional benefits of potatoes. However, is it possible to live without potatoes in your diet?
The simple potato is so versatile, from smashed to fried, that it’s practically impossible to find someone who doesn’t enjoy them. However, this food, apart from rice, receives the most criticism from many seeking to lose weight—after all, potatoes aren’t a weight-loss veggie, are they? Continue your diet even while consuming potatoes through these recipes:
These yummy oven-roasted potatoes are simple to prepare so that you can have a tasty side dish with little effort. If you want to make this dish, check Spanish potatoes from Kathy’s Vegan Kitchen.

Baked Potato Wedges
Baking your potato is one of the best methods to get the most nutrition from your potatoes. The explanation is straightforward. Anything deep-fried adds to the overall calorie count of the dish. Baking uses relatively little oil; therefore, you save a lot of calories. These tasty wedges are simple to make and a far healthier alternative to fries.
Try Sweet Potatoes With Lemon And Mashed Banana
This little mixture has the texture of a creamy dessert yet is entirely nutritious. Half a banana should be mashed—1/2 teaspoon lemon juice or freshly grated lemon zest. Please don’t overdo it with the lemon! You need a tiny little bit. Otherwise, it will be overbearing. One cooked sweet potato or yam should be split in half and topped with the mashed banana lemon combination.
Peel The Potatoes And Eat The Skin
Potato skins are both tasty and healthy. Make sure to clean potatoes well before baking, and the skin, particularly sweet potato skins, is safe to consume. If you plan on trying this recipe, buy organic whenever possible.
Baked And Grilled Potatoes
Wrap a baked or sweet potato in tin foil and throw it on the grill with the rest of your meat and veggies. Cook your potatoes in the microwave a few minutes before grilling if your other foods will cook fast.
