Potato wedges can actually be a detox snack! If you choose to bake them instead of frying, and use nourishing spices to flavor them, you can obtain a nourishing snack to help your body during the detox process. Potatoes are an excellent source of potassium, an essential mineral your cells need for flushing out excess water, toxins, and to prevent excess sodium accumulation. They are also low in calories, high in fiber, and rich in vitamin B6 which your body needs to support its enzymatic activity. Turmeric and cumin not only add a delicious flavor, but enrich this snack with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Plus it has a gorgeous yellow color!
