U.S. Potatoes Power-up Fit Dancing On International Women’s Day 2024

Getting ready for the Purplicious Women's Day Fit Dance

Kuala Lumpur, March 08, 2024 – Potatoes USA celebrated International Women’s Day – powering up 100 women participants from the general public with U.S. potatoes – in the “Purplicious Women’s Day Fit Dance” held at Georgetown, Penang recently.

To mark International Women’s Day, Potatoes USA engaged popular Chef Imran from Singapore to create four simple, delicious U.S. potato recipes that active ladies can prepare and enjoy after their workouts.

If you are looking to power up your workout or athletic performance, look no further than the U.S. potato. Did you know that potatoes provide the energy, potassium and Vitamin C you need to perform at your best? Potatoes are more energy-packed than any other popular vegetable and have even more potassium than a banana. Plus, there is a U.S. potato performance recipe option to fuel your body and brain throughout the day- whether you live an active lifestyle or are competing with elite athletes.

Loaded Chili Con Carne U.S. Potato Bites

Chef Imran was shared four new scrumptious and healthy recipes using U.S. potatoes on site. They were:

  • S. Potatoes Beetroot Gnocchi with Cheese Sauce
  • Loaded Chili Con Carne with U.S. Potatoes Bites
  • Pulled BBQ Chicken with U.S. Tater Totes
  • Smashed U.S. Potatoes with Steak Salsa Verde.

Several lucky participants were invited to assist the chef in preparing the dishes for them to experience firsthand how easy it was to make those dishes at home.

Key facts about the potato power:

  • 26 grams of carbohydrate – Potatoes are a nutrient-dense quality carbohydrate, important for optimal physical and mental performance as the primary fuel for your brain and a key source of energy for muscles. And, because your body’s own stores of carbohydrate are limited and may be depleted – even in a single session of intense and/or prolonged exercise– it is important to replenish them.
  • 620 Milligrams of Potassium – A medium-sized (148g) potato, with the skin-on, provides more potassium than a banana, no fat, no sodium, and no cholesterol. Potatoes are perfect for aiding muscle, cardiovascular and nervous system function during long endurance events.
  • 30% of daily value of Vitamin C – Potatoes are an excellent source of Vitamin C which helps to boost the immune system and aids in collagen production, a major muscle tissue component.
  • 3 grams of plan-based protein – Protein is a key component of muscle and an important nutrient for performance.
  • 2 grams of fiber (7% daily value) – Fiber helps regulate blood glucose and increase satiety, making one feel full longer.
  • 110 Calories for Energy – Easily digestible and more energy dense than any other popular vegetable, potatoes are a good choice to fuel the demands of racing a marathon.
