Breakfast is one of our favorite meals, so serving nutritionally dense, delicious food (such as our Red Breakfast Potatoes) makes our mornings even better! Not only are potatoes a traditional comfort food, but they are rich with vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin B6, vitamin C, vitamin K, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, folate, pantothenic acid, magnesium, phosophorus, and potassium. Studies have shown that consuming sodium, potassium, and chloride are all important electrolytes for cardiovascular health and urinary output (1), so make sure to fill up on foods rich in potassium, such as dark leafy greens, salmon, avocado, plain yogurt, bananas, and potatoes. Consuming these foods will help keep your heart and urinary tract healthy, so go ahead and re-create our Red Breakfast Potatoes–they are sure to bring a smile to your face and become a staple recipe for years to come.
