Baked potatoes. When I think of comfort food baked potatoes are right up there at the top of that list. And these Vegan Baked Potatoes with Herbs are my favourite way to make baked potatoes. The prep for these vegan baked potatoes with herbs takes just a few minutes and then all you do is throw them in the oven and let them bake. It doesn’t get any easier than that!
Can you believe I went six years without eating potatoes? Crazy right? You see, they aren’t allowed on the SCD diet so while I was on SCD for two years I avoided them like the plaque. Then I transitioned to the paleo diet and for a long time most paleo experts did not allow them either. However, over the last couple years most experts have changed their stance on potatoes.
Ever since the Whole30 program started allowing them again most paleo bloggers and practitioners have also started to allow them. So for the last year or so I have added them back into my diet. And my body does just fine with them which is so nice. Going out to eat is so much easier when you can have potatoes. Now of course, my number one rule when it comes to food is that you need to do what’s right for your body. If you don’t tolerate potatoes, please don’t eat them. Just because they are allowed on whatever diet it is you follow doesn’t mean they are good for you. We are all individuals and what works well for someone might be disastrous for someone else.
In fact, many of my patients with rheumatoid arthritis are quite sensitive to white potatoes and notice that their joints flare whenever they eat them. So of course for those individuals I don’t recommend eating them. But if you tolerate potatoes then I bet you are going to love these Vegan Baked Potatoes with Herbs.
We make a batch of these potatoes almost every week because they are just so darn easy and also make great leftovers. Because let’s be honest, none of us want to be stuck in the kitchen every single night after work. I mean who has time for that? Definitely not me!
