1. Prep Your Raw Potatoes

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees f and select eight healthy-looking baking potatoes. They should be firm and absent of bruises or sprouts, which are all indicators of spoilage. Wash the potatoes in water and then dry them thoroughly. Don’t forget to pierce each potato two or three times with a fork to keep them from bursting in the oven. Next, rub the potatoes with extra virgin olive oil for a heart-healthy way to add flavor and crispness to the skins.
