Ask Dr. Potato:  I love baked potatoes but tend to go overboard on the toppings. Any suggestions for healthier options?

A: Baked Idaho® potatoes are naturally healthy. A dollop of sour cream, cheese sauce, or a pad of butter may be okay, but when you start piling on the toppings, your healthy spud is suddenly loaded with fat and calories.

Here are a few things to keep in mind next time you flower your baker:

  • While sour cream is wonderful, just 2 tablespoons can add 70 calories, 50 of those from fat! Considering a 5.3 ounce plain, baked potato is 110 calories, 2 tiny tablespoons add 64% more calories.
  • Instead of high fat or high sodium toppings, try small amounts of flavorful blue cheese or shredded, aged cheddar.
  • Use low or non-fat yogurt rather than sour cream.
  • Try using a whipped butter, so you'll use less, olive oil, or a fat-free spread.
  • Add fresh herbs to a low-fat ranch dressing to perk up your potato.
  • Crank up the spice level with jalapeño or Sriracha instead of salt.
