Potaaaaaahto

Even the poorest college student with limited funds and facilities can have a super filling and nutritious meal!

Microwave a potato, add some black beans, cheeze sauce, olives, salsa, avocado and or whatever else your heart desires! 

Potatoes are not only super filling and CHEAP but are packed with nutrients!
