- Facts on Hash:
Hash is a dish that is made with diced meat, potatoes, and spices that are mixed together and then cooked either alone or with other ingredients such as onions. The name came from the French hachis, from hacher (to chop).
In many locations, hash is served mainly as a breakfast food on restaurant menus and as home cuisine, often served with eggs and toast (or biscuits), and rarely fried potatoes (hash browns, home fries, etc.). The dish may also use corned beef or roast beef.
Corned beef hash became particularly well-liked in some countries during and after World War II as rationing limited the availability of fresh meat.
Facts on Potatoes:
Consumption of potatoes at every meal has become a staple for many families, making potatoes the number one vegetable crop worldwide. Potatoes give significant benefits to one's health when eaten properly. They help avoid cancer and manage high blood pressure and diabetes.
It is essential to remember when preparing potatoes to leave the skin intact. The potato skin contains all the vitamins and nutrients, whereas the inside is basically just starch.
Boiling potatoes in water will cause them to lose vital nutrients. If boiling is needed when preparing potatoes, it is important to keep the water, reusing it for soups, to maintain the vitamins. It is best to bake a potato with the skin intact when preparing potatoes for a meal.
Potato skins contain an anti-carcinogenic compound called chlorogenic acid. This particular acid helps the fiber in potatoes absorb carcinogens that are found in grilled foods.
Potato consumption with grilled foods is common and significant when maintaining good health and fighting off cancer-causing substances.
You can calm a nauseous stomach by eating potatoes. The potato skin contains vitamin B6, which is good for eliminating nausea.
Potatoes are high in potassium, and foods rich in potassium tend to keep high blood pressure under control. Another added benefit to eating potatoes is feeling fuller longer, helping keep weight under control.
If you are diabetic, you can benefit from eating potatoes for several reasons. Potatoes contain vitamin C, a nutrient known for helping control sugar levels in the blood.
They also have complex carbohydrates. Complex carbohydrates must be broken down before being absorbed into the bloodstream. Sugar enters the bloodstream steadily rather than all at once, helping keep blood sugar levels stable.
Potatoes can be prepared a number of different ways and are very adaptable and fun to try in new recipes. They are easy on the taste buds and enjoyed by most people. When eaten moderately at meals and prepared properly, the benefits of eating potatoes can result in a longer, healthier life.
