The misunderstood spud

If your doctor wrote you a prescription for a "Baked Potato" you might think he or she was nuts. But it wouldn't be so far-fetched. You get all these healthy benefits from one medium-sized baked potato with skin:

* You get 925 mg of potassium to help keep your blood pressure in check

* You get 50 mg of magnesium to help Reduce your risk of type 2 diabetes

* You get 5 grams of fiber to help keep your bowels running smoothly and your appetite under control.
