5-Day Meal Plan with US Potato #USPotatoPowerPH

Regular readers of this blog know how much I love US Potatoes whether it is fresh, frozen, or dehydrated. Over the  years, I have shared several recipes here on the blog using US Potatoes. To this day, I am still a believer. I  rely on US Potato if I want to create and eat something good and nutritious.

I’m working my way to a much healthier me- starting with quitting my smoking habit (which I’ve done for almost a year now), being mindful on the food that I consume, and exercise daily.

Quitting smoking entails gaining weight for some and that includes me. That is why recently, I have come up with a simple way to manage my food intake. I am not too crazy about getting thin because truth is, I am at peace with my body structure. What I am concerned about is being healthy. I don't mind being plump, I just want to be healthy.


So, I figured why not try to make a 5-Day Healthy Meal Plan that suits my lifestyle. I have been doing it for two weeks now and let me tell you that following a 5-Day Meal Plan saves me from consuming excessive amount of food that my body doesn’t need.

Also, having a meal plan allows me the liberty and inspiration to incorporate more US Potatoes in my meals. As we all know, US Potatoes are a good health food to include in our diet.

It is worth  noting that US Potatoes are naturally fat-free and cholesterol-free and sodium-free which makes them a good choice for those who have kidney concerns. It is also a good source of Vitamin C that promotes healthy skin and hair. They can reduce risk of high blood pressure and stroke as it is a good source of potassium.

I am sharing  the 5 Day Healthy Meal Plan with US Potatoes that I created and used last week. I am still creating meal plans as  I’m writing this but I am playing on variety because trust me, there are plenty of delicious and healthy dishes you can create with US Potatoes.

This sample 5 Day Healthy Meal Plan is the one that fits my lifestyle in a week when I don't have much strenuous activities to do. I make it a point to incorporate at least one US Potato dish a day. I use air fryer so there's very little, if ever there was, oil in these food.

As mentioned, I make it a point to incorporate one US Potato dish every day to achieve the nutritional benefits. I followed this meal plan and I feel energized and light. I rarely eat in-between meals and if I have to, I always stick to almonds and other nuts. Saturdays and Sundays are my cheat days.

If you are inclined to follow this meal plan, feel free to play around the variety of US Potato dishes you would like to enjoy. You may also check out my blog archives as I have US Potato recipes you may want to use.
