Why is this so Good?
Everybody is scared of potato these days. But potatoes are so versatile and delicious! Enter – Carisma potatoes.
Carisma are a new(ish) kid on the block. They are grown in Australia and are the first low Glycaemic Index (GI) potato.
Being low GI means they burn more slowly in the body so keep you fuller for longer. This makes them perfect for those who are trying to lose body fat or control their sugar levels due to diabetes or insulin resistance. Better still, they cook and taste just like normal potatoes!
Using these potatoes adds variety to your carbohydrate choices at dinner and you’ll get the added nutritional benefits of fibre, potassium, vitamin C and vitamin B all found in white potato.
(Please note, Carisma potatoes are only found at Coles right now).
Here is a neat ‘Mum tip’ for you. Brushed potatoes should be stored in a cool dark place whereas washed potatoes are better kept in the fridge. And don’t store your potatoes with your onions as they will go off much faster.
