Steak Meatballs with Mashed Potatoes Recipe.

Mashed potatoes? Yes, white potatoes are totally fine to eat if you tolerate them well – they’re not any less nutritious than sweet potatoes, they don’t cause blood sugar problems in people who have normal carbohydrate metabolism, and there’s no reason to avoid nightshades unless you already have an autoimmune disease. If you don’t do well with carbs, or if you do have an autoimmune disease, you might want to skip them, but that doesn’t make them “bad” in the abstract.
