Potatoes are a great source of carbohydrates and potassium. Our bodies use carbohydrates as energy. This breakfast hash is a great pre-workout meal before your mid-morning workout if you top it with an egg! All varieties of potatoes are much higher in energy and carbohydrates than other vegetables. I was inspired to make this when I spotted a potato medley at Trader Joe’s. Plus I had some left over Black Bean & Corn Salsa from the Superbowl so this turned out to be a win! Potato haters beware – all foods fit.
