Getting ready for outdoor fundraising events — perhaps a little walking or running? Then consider fueling up on Wisconsin potatoes.

  • Potatoes play an important role in restoring your body’s glycogen — in other words, your energy supply. At 37 grams of carbohydrates, taters can supply 10% of your daily needs.
  • Potatoes are rich in antioxidants — particularly red and purple potatoes. Antioxidants help repair damage done to your tissues and can help your body recover after exercise.
  • Taters can also help keep your circulatory system in tip-top shape because they are rich in potassium, which can help lower blood pressure.

So try some of these delicious tater-filled breakfast recipes — perfect for race day mornings.
