November 9, 2011 By Leanne Vogel July 13, 2015My love for mashed potatoes goes deep. The day I moved out of my parents house at the tender age of 17, I was very happy to learn that potatoes were about the only thing I could afford. That and egg noodles, tomato juice and licorice from Walmart. Let’s just say there was a 3 year period in my life where I would polish off at least 4 potatoes a day. How I didn’t turn into a potato is beyond me. So how does this lead us to carrots and turnips, exactly? Well, as much as I love potatoes, I’ve realized that having them everyday isn’t exactly ideal (and can actually cause sensitivities!). When I’m hungry, tired and can’t think of anything to make; yes this happens to the best of us, I’ve always gravitated toward a big batch of mashed potatoes or yams and lived off it for a couple of days – along with some sort of protein of course. But not this time, no, no. I’m ready for something lighter, sweeter and – gasp – potato free!
