If I told you that my family has given up potatoes, I'd be lying. I'm still adjusting to a new cooking style that excludes so many things that I grew up with, that I'm cutting myself a little slack in the potato department. Right now, my goal is to get potato consumption down to one meal a week, and then eventually, limit them to special occasions and holidays.
If you have children that love potato fries as much as my son does, yams are a great initial substitute. They are not tubers and contain more fiber than a potato, which helps to slow down the release of all that starch. Better yet, try the squash fries from Elana's Pantry - they go over pretty well at our house.
