About the Rosemary Mashers Recipe
Most diets will tell you that you can't eat potatoes because they're loaded with starch. When it comes to the holidays, however, mashed potatoes are a staple — so we decided to make them a little bit healthier by infusing some rosemary into that decadent butter we would be adding. We also left the skin on our potatoes because they contain lots of nutrients, and with all the other yumminess in these you don't even notice them.
Throughout history, rosemary has been used as a medicine, cultural symbol, and in spiritual practices (Herbco, 2017). Today it is one of the most popular herbs available.
When it comes to health, Rosemary is a great source of:
Antioxidants: helps stop damage to cells that can cause diseases like cancer, heart disease, and more
And potatoes are a wonderful source of:
Fiber: supports digestive health, lowers cholesterol, helps you feel fuller longer and reduce appetite
Vitamin C: supports the immune system, aids in bone formation & wound healing, helps protect the body from infections
The skin on potatoes has tons more nutrients such as potassium, niacin, and iron.
