You’ve heard the term being tossed around, so you might be asking yourself, “What’s a ‘food tribe,’ anyway?” It’s a community of people who share a similar food philosophy. Some of today’s big food tribes include vegan, vegetarian, low-sodium, sugar-free, dairy/lactose-free, gluten-free and grain-free. You guessed it, our versatile Little Potatoes fit neatly into them all.
To get a sense of who’s eating what, take a look above at these facts about our food choices.
In addition to health and wellness reasons, lifestyle, environmental, ethical and political motives are driving the trend. But whatever your food tribe, you can include Creamers.
First of all, Little Potatoes are vegetables, appealing to every diet. Suitable even for a hunter-gatherer approach to eating—emphasizing primarily high protein and fat, and excluding added sugar, dairy or grains. Creamers contain “good carbs,” otherwise known as complex carbohydrates, because of their high-fiber and low-sugar content. They are allowed on the low-carb Atkins Diet’s “Do Eat” list. Try them in this Greek-inspired skillet potato recipe, served with your choice of protein.
And since they’re extremely nutritious veggies, and a source of iron, Little Potatoes also appeal to vegans and vegetarians, who avoid a common source of dietary iron, animal protein (though some vegetarians do still eat eggs and dairy). Try this plant-strong vegan/vegetarian recipe.
For those following a gluten-free diet or managing Celiac disease, an autoimmune disorder in which gluten impedes nutrient absorption, Creamers are a natural fit because they contain no gluten. If you’re a grain-free eater, or dairy/lactose intolerant, you can enjoy them, too! Little Potatoes are naturally free of sugar and low sodium, while delivering big on fiber, potassium, iron, and Vitamin C. (Try this tasty gluten-free breakfast recipe.)
If you belong to the tribe of Weight Watchers, Little Potatoes are your vegetable. They have just 20 calories each (fully dressed), weighing in at only one SmartPoint (a whole serving of about six is three SmartPoints)—all while being creamy, delicious and naturally buttery tasting.
