How Many Calories in A Baked Potato – Be Surprised

Those who are calorie conscious always seem to freak out when it comes to potatoes. Really when it boils or rather bakes down they are quite nutritious and with the right topping delicious. As you can see from the pictures below they really don’t have that many calories. I find with vegetables one potato is enough with any of those fillings or with Protein like a steak or chicken or fish. 

My Source is Verywellfit.com and quite a good read if you are interested.

A Potato is a great add-on to your meal in the evening or lunch especially if you are looking at losing weight. It is filling and sticks to your ribs as my Mum used to say.

Collagen for Cats and Dogs

I am always writing about the health benefits for humans but not very often about our pets. Today I was making a veggie, meat and bone broth mix for my friends Staffy. Smelt so good and it tasted good. Might even have some for my dinner. 

My Recipe

I boiled up bones from the butcher + a few herbs, ginger and turmeric for several hours and let it cool over night. I then took all the meat off the bones and the marrow out of the bones. Threw away the bones. I then added vegetables (beans, tomatoes, broccoli, celery, potatoes, corn, and some beef  powder to thicken (organic) then I added beef pieces and cooked it till the veggie’s were cooked added a little salt and pepper. When it is cooled I will put it in separate containers and feed her a portion of it every day with her breakfast. Honestly it is good stuff.
