What Are the Health Benefits of Potatoes and Broccoli?

The potato has waned in popularity with the Keto Diet being so popular. However, potatoes are still delicious! They are naturally low in calories; for an entire medium-sized potato, the calorie count is just over 100 calories. They contain tons of vitamins such as B6 and Vitamin C, as well as manganese and niacin. These vitamins and minerals prevent disease and keep your body running on healthy energy.

Broccoli is an excellent source of protein and fiber. It contains many different B vitamins, potassium, calcium, and magnesium. Broccoli has been renowned for its vast health benefits. Combining potatoes and broccoli to make this lovely casserole has many health advantages. For more healthy casseroles, try my Healthy Cheeseburger Casserole with Macaroni.
