Potatoes Health Benefits

By the way, potatoes are healthy for you! I know people tend to think they’re just calories and carbs these days but actually they’re also super nutritious – just to start:

Vitamin C – They’re packed with Vitamin C. Especially the skin!

Potassium – Potatoes actually have more potassium than a banana!

Vitamin B6 – One potato is already about 10% of your daily needs for this important vitamin!

And, that’s just 3 of many health benefits. So that’s why I don’t feel horrible eating them here and there. Obviously, I don’t recommend having like 10 potatoes a day or anything, but they are quite nutritious as a side or appetizer!

How many calories in Air Fried Potatoes

If you use this recipe, it makes about 4 servings. One serving of Air Fried Potatoes is 137 calories. If you use another recipe, I won’t be completely sure the calories as it highly depends on the ingredients used.

Also, if you are just deep frying potatoes, the calories will be way more because you will use a lot more oil to fry it. Oven roasted potatoes might be the second best thing calories wise.
