Chris Voight will be long remembered as the guy who went on a 60-day self-imposed exclusive potato diet to prove that the federal government is inappropriately labeling the spud as unhealthy.
Voight is the head of the Washington State Potato Commission, so potatoes are his bread and butter.
For his first post-all-potato-diet meal he included, cannily, a serving of potatoes.
It wouldn't do for him to admit he's had enough for awhile.
Some folks think it's just a media gimmick to get some publicity for potatoes.
But the truth is, the way potatoes are prepared is far more risky to one's health than the potatoes themselves.
We salute Voight for sticking by his spuds.
Not a bad idea. A baked potato would go pretty well right now, in this cold weather.
With maybe just a little melted butter.
Well, maybe a little more butter than that.
