With x-mas lights up, the tables are also going to be set with some savoury indulgences. Mashed potatoes, and veggies with a side of cranberry sauce is a staple food during the holiday season during this time of the year.

Mashed potatoes are a rich source of essential nutrients like vitamin C, B6, potassium, and dietary fiber, supporting immune function, brain development, and heart and muscle function.

Mashed potatoes are a starchy food rich in carbohydrates, essential for the body's energy needs, promoting physical activity and maintaining overall energy levels.

Potatoes, particularly when eaten with skin, contain dietary fiber that aids in digestive health by adding bulk to the stool and promoting regular bowel movements.

Mashed potatoes are relatively filling due to their carbohydrate and fiber content. They can help you feel satisfied and full, potentially preventing overeating during a meal.
