Some years ago, we had an excellent crop of potatoes from the Furlong garden. We grew them in tubs that we filled with compost as the plants developed. We ended up with tubs almost solid with potatoes. That was before High Fat Low Carbohydrate eating.
The very first potatoes we ate were baked, split, seasoned and drizzled with butter. They were the most heavenly flavour. There is really nothing more delicious than eating food you have grown yourself and that is fresher than fresh when you cook it.
We don’t eat potatoes now. We don’t eat commercial food, or bread, sugar and other stuff we once did.
But, potatoes contain Resistant Starch, as does Oats, Peas, Green Bananas and some Beans. Resistant Starch does not affect blood glucose, but feeds all the little useful friendly gut flora. AND it can lower blood glucose!
So, we are planning for Spring – maybe a tub of potatoes would be nice.
