I seem to be failing at being a google ninja today. They seem to be the perfect serving size of potato (1 of them = serving). I was thinking mixing it with some parsnip, rutabaga etc and dividing up the result into two portions. So effectively eating a half a small potato. I like em cooked on the frying pan next to my eggs in the morning. Thank you paleo folks- I know its a silly question but thought provoking smart ones are kinda not coming to me at the moment=)

*ps I know sweet potato would be a better choice.. but honestly I just dont like em. They taste sweet in a ew way to me. I also dont like the taste of things cooked in bacon grease (though I love bacon)!! crazy I know! But it gives me that "ugh I just ate really badddd oil (processed vegetable)" or something. I wonder if it oxidizes badly when cooked a second time.

Eating small things doesn't count. Its like, mini-M&Ms have no calories...

Great advice. I really need to invest in a kitchen scale! At this time I have no way of weighing anything :(

I'm sort of a Google search master.

Is it the medley one? If so, I Googled around, and it seems that 1 cup (or 145 grams) has 120 calories, 18 g carbs, 2 g fiber, 2 g sugar.

I don't see why they'd be different from any other potato in terms of carbs per gram of potato. So, just weigh one or two and see what they come out to, and use the nutritional info for a regular potato. There's enough variability in size among those small potatoes that it'd be necessarily inaccurate to say that one of them has X grams of carbs.

E.g. for a three-dimensional object like that, an increase of ~25% (cube root of 2) in each dimension results in a doubling of volume. A 2-inch diameter potato is half as big as a 2.5-inch potato in terms of volume.
