Fitness Recipe: Mashed Potatoes with a Twist

Blue Rings

Sweet Potato Base

Replace traditional potatoes with sweet potatoes. They are lower in calories, higher in fiber, and packed with vitamins A and C.

Greek Yogurt Addition

Mix in Greek yogurt instead of sour cream or butter. Greek yogurt adds creaminess, protein, and probiotics without excess fat.

Garlic and Herb Infusion

Infuse mashed potatoes with garlic, thyme, and rosemary. These herbs enhance flavor without additional calories or sodium.

Olive Oil Drizzle

Drizzle a small amount of extra virgin olive oil. It provides healthy fats that aid in nutrient absorption and add richness.

Cauliflower Blend

Incorporate steamed cauliflower into the mash. Cauliflower reduces the calorie content while boosting fiber and nutrients.

Parmesan Cheese Sprinkle

Sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese on top. It adds a savory kick with fewer calories than traditional cheese.

Season with Pepper

Use freshly ground black pepper for seasoning. Pepper adds flavor without the need for excessive salt or butter.

Serve with Lean Protein

Pair with a lean protein like grilled chicken or baked fish. This balances the meal with protein while keeping it low in fat.
