If you cook/cool/reheat white potatoes does the resistant starch stay intact? Does it matter how you reheat them? Oven/fry/microwave? Cheers

If you roast your own, the peels will come off with literally zero effort and you can just mash them down and freeze for later!

How bad of a reaction do you have to white potatoes? If it isn't too scary maybe try it out, but I think that red skinned potatoes are still white potatoes, the nightshade kind, just a slight variation in breed.

What foods can I keep in a dorm room that would be good staple foods? So far I can think of sardines and sweet potatoes...plus a jar of coconut oil. Any other things? Not a huge nut fan, so other things would be preferred. Thanks!

Surely you have a small dorm fridge...? Load it up with hard boiled eggs! I'd say coconut butter and coconut shreds along with your coconut oil. Cans of tuna. Get over your nut thing. Or try sunflower or pumpkin seeds.
