Potatoes are an excellent source of Vitamin C which helps to boost the immune system and aids in collagen production, a major muscle tissue component. 

3 Grams of Plant-Based Protein 
Protein is a key component of muscle and an important nutrient for performance. 

2 Grams of Fiber (7% Daily Value) 
Fiber helps to regulate blood glucose and increase satiety, making one feel full longer.
