Tangy Potato Salad

Ward off diabetes with potato salad! Widespread diabetes is definitely a danger, but there’s an easy way to ward it off, say Harvard researchers – load up on fiber. And one of the best sources is that picnic classic – potato salad. The catch? It needs to be made with the skin on, using small red or new potatoes, for it to deliver up to 7 grams of fiber per cup. Fiber stabilizes blood sugar, reducing your risk of Type II diabetes by an impressive 42%. Source: Claudia Gonzales, R.D., American Dietetic Assoc.
