For the following foods which potato would go best with it from a nutriton perspective (russet or sweet)?
Grass Fed Meat?
Dark Leafy Greens?
I am planning on eating both types of potatoes and I am wondering which foods will combine the best together...
Mm.. because of my activity level I tend to have my sweets in the morning to replenish and build and then regular potatoes as night. Sometimes I roast the two together as a blend but lately have been switching off at night between roasted squash, Kabocha or Butternut, and the potato. A typical post WOD meal for me is roasted Japanese sweet potato, about four huge handfuls of greens, right now collards, braised and then a protein finishing with some sort of fruit to munch on - like a palate cleanser I guess. It works for me, I feel aces and have continued to stay lean, build muscle, be fast on my feet.
IMO just play with the two and see how you feel. My love for N=1 is neverending :)
Note: Comparison of the two - of course the sweet has more antioxidants and the gi level is lower, but it's interesting to see the two together:
