My family (Cori here) likes to grill as much as possible when the weather and our schedules allow. Really, my husband likes to grill, so I certainly encourage him to do so. I always appreciate a night off from cooking. 🙂
One of our favorite grilling sides is to throw some red potatoes, carrots, a little butter and seasoning in foil and then throw it on the grill. Delicious!
Potatoes get a bad rap because they are starchy carbohydrates that can cause your blood sugar to rise. If you are on a no-carb or low-carb eating plan, then you probably won’t like this recipe. The way you prepare your potatoes actually influences their “score” on the Glycemic Index. I searched for a while trying to find the GI of roasted red potatoes, and I couldn’t find it. If you’d like more information about potatoes, here is a general list for foods from Shake Off the Sugar. And here is an article titled The Glycemic Index of Potatoes at Livestrong.
My goal right now is to eat mostly real foods, so potatoes are OK for me. If they are OK for you, then here is an easy recipe for you:
