Roasted Red Potatoes

 

I love these roasted red potatoes because they are delicious yet so simple to make! They also pair well with so many breakfast, lunch, or dinner dishes.

Red potatoes have a nutrient dense skin.  Their thin skin is loaded with iron, fiber, vitamin C, and B vitamins. They are also rich in complex carbohydrates, so they are an excellent source of energy. Red potatoes can also help maintain healthy blood pressure, because they are high in potassium and naturally sodium free.

Parsley acts as an anti-inflammatory agent in the body and boosts the immune system.   Studies have also shown that it can be used to help control blood sugar affected by diabetes when eaten regularly.  It also has great anti-fungal and antibacterial properties.  My favorite thing about parsley is its power as a digestive aid. It helps food along the digestive tract and prevents bloating.
