Loaded baked potato

We've always found potatoes to be very soothing for our tummies. Baked potatoes are so easy to make for either lunch or dinner and you can vary the toppings to suit your taste. Sweet potatoes are unfortunately of the menu as they are high in FODMAP's, but ordinary once are ok.

Potatoes seem to have bit of a bad reputation at the moment because it's fairly high in carbohydrates, but you might be surprised to know how nutritious it really is.
A large potato contains about 60 percent of the daily value for vitamin D and 45 percent of the daily value for vitamin C. It also contains 35 percent of the daily value for B-6, and 15% for thiamin, niacin, magnesium and iron.

With some healthy toppings a baked potato can actually be a really healthy, nutritious meal that your tummy will love. 

 We hope you enjoy it!
