Power Up with Idaho® Potatoes
The important nutrients and energy Idaho® potatoes provide make them a perfect food for athletes of all levels. Over the years the Idaho Potato Commission has supported many events and programs that promote a healthy lifestyle. Our most recent sponsorship is RODS Racing. RODS Racing is comprised of 40 superior athletes who will collectively compete in more than 224 marathons, triathlons and other events this year to raise money to find homes in the United States for orphaned children with Down syndrome who live in other parts of the world.
“We are thankful and thrilled that the IPC is the RODS Racing 2013 Presenting Sponsor,” said Brady Murray, Founder, RODS Racing. “My teammates and I rely on Idaho® potatoes to provide us with the energy and important vitamins and minerals we need for training and racing. Their generous donation and support have inspired each and every one of us to further challenge ourselves to not only compete at our highest level, but to do everything in our power to save as many orphaned children with Down syndrome as possible.”
To help athletes achieve their peak performance, we’ve compiled our favorite Idaho® potato recipes that offer a power punch of important vitamins and minerals, complex carbohydrates and a variety of protein sources.
