The Simple Potato

 Looking for a way to save money on your grocery budget? We love to eat a fun and simple meal of baked potatoes either once a week or every other week. I put out cheese, butter, ranch, and cook up some bacon (to please my meat-a-saurus hubby) and it seems like a treat. They each put just what they love on their potatoes and besides baking them, there is hardly no work involved!

Potatoes are a super inexpensive food, and while I wouldn't eat them all the time, they are "Rich in carbohydrate, vitamin C and potassium, the potato often gets a bad rap because it is a high-glycemic food. However, the potato offers some fiber, especially when eaten with the skin on." - EatingWell.com

So the next time you are running low on grocery money, grab some potatoes and let your family fix them just how they want 'em!
