Enjoy this distinctive side dish - horseradish mashed potatoes that can be made ready in 30 minutes!
medium unpeeled boiling potatoes (about 1 1/2 pounds), cut into 1/2-inch slices
cup plain low-fat or fat-free yogurt
tablespoon prepared horseradish
to 4 tablespoons fat-free (skim) milk
Chopped fresh parsley, if desired
Heat 1 inch water to boiling in 3-quart saucepan. Add potatoes. Heat to boiling; reduce heat to low. Cook about 15 minutes or until tender; drain. Return potatoes to saucepan. Shake pan with potatoes over low heat to dry; remove from heat.
Mash potatoes until no lumps remain. Beat in yogurt, horseradish and salt. Add milk in small amounts, beating after each addition (amount of milk needed to make potatoes smooth and fluffy depends on the kind of potatoes used). Beat vigorously until potatoes are light and fluffy. Sprinkle with parsley.
Not only are they a terrific source of carbohydrates, eating potatoes is a good way to get more Vitamin C and fiber, particularly when eating the skin. Potatoes are also essentially fat-free, and studies have shown that they keep you "filled up" longer than most any other food.
Just taking a break and going for a walk helps clear body, mind and spirit. Instead of eating lunch at your desk every day, make it a goal to get up, stretch, go for a walk, and return to your desk refreshed and ready for the afternoon!
