12. Sweet potatoes
Finally, consider sweet potatoes as an alternative to regular potatoes. Sure they can be used in sweet potato pie, but they’re also brilliant for a savory snack or meal. These potatoes can be baked to create a healthy lunch, or prepared alongside meat and vegetables to give you a full meal.
Each potato will cost you less than a dollar, and they pack an amazing punch in terms of nutrition. A sweet potato will give you potassium, calcium and fiber, along with vitamin C and A. If you’re a fan of potato skins, you’ll also be glad to know that they contain lots of antioxidants as well!
