Baked potatoes have been a popular side dish for many years. Besides being baked, the versatile potato can be boiled, slow cooked in a crockpot or fried. But, baking remains one of the most popular ways of cooking a potato. The iron, phosphorous, calcium, magnesium, and zinc in potatoes all help the body to build and maintain bone structure and strength. Iron and zinc play crucial roles in the production and maturation of collagen.
The potato's fiber, potassium, vitamin C, and vitamin B6 content, coupled with its lack of cholesterol, all support heart health. This is due to the fact that potatoes contain significant amounts of fiber. Fiber helps lower the total amount of cholesterol in the blood, thereby decreasing the risk of heart disease.
Broccoli is one of those amazing superhero vegetables that are considered high water, a good source of Vitamin E, A, C, K, B6, protein, minerals and fiber.

Broccoli contains high levels of both calcium and vitamin K, both of which are important for bone health and prevention of osteoporosis.
