Thank you so much for all the suggestions for toning thighs without running. I’m looking over all the (wonderful!) suggestions and will let you know my game plan 🙂 I’m just excited that it seems like I’m not doomed for flabby thighs! Yippee!
I like to think of myself as a person that doesn’t fall into food trends or take information as fact before doing my research, but I must admit, sometimes it happens.
This time I’m referring to potatoes.
Sweet potatoes vs plain old white (Russet) potatoes.
I grew up eating baked (white) potatoes, either loaded with sour cream, salt and pepper or A-1 steak sauce (ohEMgee, I’m drooling, yum!). When I started getting more into health and nutrition, I was told that sweet potatoes were king and that they are all I should eat. With a heavy heart I tossed my beloved white potato aside and embraced it’s orange cousin with open arms.
Lately I’ve been thinking… did I not put up enough of a fight for my love affair with the white potato?
Now don’t get me wrong, I really enjoy sweet potatoes whether they are baked or roasted, they are delicious! However, every now and again I miss my old buddy, the russet. So I decided to take a closer look and see what really made a sweet potato SO MUCH better… what I found was surprising!
