13 Healthier, Paleo Alternatives to Mashed Potatoes
Skip the russets this year and mash up turnips, plantains and sweet potatoes
instead with these 13 ideas for mashed potato alternatives.
Everyone loves a heaping mound of buttery mashed potatoes at the holiday table.
Unfortunately, since white potatoes belong to the nightshade family, nightshades can
be a constant source of irritation to your body – especially if you suffer
from autoimmune disease.
Luckily for us, potatoes are only one of many root vegetables, and not even the
tastiest! From cauliflower to sweet potatoes, there’s plenty of nourishing veggies for
you to boil up and get to mashing.
Even if your guests are not following a Paleo diet, these creamy dishes will satisfy
their taste buds and bring hearty goodness to any feast.
