    Potatoes are not especially nutritious, but do have some nutrients. They are high in fiber, protein, and vitamin C, but also very high in carbohydrates. Also, depending on how it is cooked, potatoes can become even more carb-heavy and gain a hefty fat content, so be wary of how you prepare them.

    Sadly, potatoes aren’t greatly nutritious, as edmccoy11 noted. Orange colored sweet potatoes have a good source of vitamin A, though, and are an easy substitute for a potato dish.

    Potatoes have low calories, high fiber, and a good source of Vitamin C, B6, copper, potassium, and magnesium. They also have phytonutrients that provide antioxidant benefits, such as carotenoids, flavonoids, and caffeic acid. One study has even found that there are 60 different phytochemicals and vitamins in potatoes.
