The Starch Solution
Potatoes have gotten a bad rap, but they are actually a great addition to a plant-based diet. If you're going to incorporate them in your diet, you just need to be smart about it. Don't be afraid of them, but also, don't drench them with sour cream and butter or eat them fried! There are plenty of healthy ways to prepare potatoes!

In the meantime, you can read a summary and reviews about it on Amazon by clicking on the image of the book.
