This chapter is obviously on starches...!
Here are the other tastings
After all this tasting, you know I had to do some nutritional research, so here's what I found...
Although 3/4 of the recipes involved frying, it was in healthy oils and not a lot of it, but the nutrition facts I found are for 1 cup of sliced, plain cooked plantains:
- 179 calories
- 47.97 g carbohydrates
- 21.56 g sugar
- 716 mg potassium
- 16.8 mg vitamin C
- 1400 IU vitamin A
- 3.5 g fiber
Overall, this is a pretty healthy food and would make a decent replacement for other starches. As with all starchy foods, though, it is important to not over do it.
And last, but certainly not least, I got a confirmation for my first product review on Luana ola!! I'm not going to spoil the surprise, but the company will be mailing some samples for me to review, so keep checking in to see when it comes!! I am so excited!
