White potatoes have an unfavorable reputation as a starchy vegetable. But they can be part of a healthy diet when you eat them in moderation and when they’re not highly processed with lots of added fat and salt (like French fries or chips). A medium-sized potato provides good amounts of potassium, folate and some vitamin C with only 130 calories.

You’ll get cancer-preventive phytochemicals called organosulfides from this dish’s garlic, onion and chives, plus more phytos from the parsley and basil. Serve it up with a salad of baby greens tossed with vinaigrette, plus a slice of whole-wheat toast, and you have an inexpensive springtime meal that fits right in with National Public Health Week.
