If eating healthier is a part of your New Year's resolutions, use the Google Search app to help you accomplish your goal. Say you're contemplating eating mashed potatoes or sweet potatoes. Tap the microphone on the Google Search App or say "Ok Google" followed by "compare mashed potatoes and sweet potatoes." Google will show you a side-by-side comparison of nutritional information such as calories, carbohydrates and protein. While mashed potatoes may be more tempting, it's easy to see that sweet potatoes are more nutritious. If you're on iOS, just make sure you have the updated Google Search app (http://goo.gl/jyHdMp)—open it, sign in and you're ready to go.

this quite embellishes google's light presidential endeavors 
 
It's a great idea... But I just got this flash of everyone walking around and asking their phones if they are allowed to eat things all day long...

I used it to ask what potatoes are used for soups and surprisingly it came back with "based on these results, russet potatoes" this is a great thing
 
Compare white bread and wheat bread. Doesn't work.
 
Mash Potatoes have additional ingredients (cream, butter, salt) that make this particular comparison unhelpful. A better comparison Potatoes vs Sweet Potatoes OR Mashed Potatoes vs Mashed Sweet Potatoes. 
 
This is not really a fair comparison, esp. if you make mashed potatoes with no milk/butter like I do. You can use the water from the boiled potatoes or non-dairy milk. Add garlic/onion powder and no fat brown gravy. Sweet potatoes are great but more expensive so it is another factor.
 
+Pauline Luna Perhaps if you submit the persons photo you are looking for we can post it and get a sharing setup where the message somehow get's to this Starla to call? I assume it's an emergency, so this might help.
 
+Aaron Miller While you can mash white flesh potatoes and add whatever you want you can do the same with orange sweet potatoes. White flesh potatoes have less nutrients and most are in the skin which usually is not eaten. Orange flesh potatoes win simply on their nutritional value so they are usually a better healthier choice.
 
+Will Kriski Sweet potatoes are sometimes very cheap. You have to look around at various produce outlets.
 
I would think there's a large variability in the calorie count of mashed potatoes depending on your recipe.  I know people who use some cream or mayonnaise to make their mash potatoes creamier.    I'm sure those are much more calorie dense.
 
'Mashed potato' isn't a type of potato, dumbass.

You can make a potato mash from any kind of potato, be it sweet, golden, white, red, or russet.

yeah i live in small town they're way more and purchased individually vs the 10 lb potato bags. But I still buy some of them, they're great.
 
+Will Kriski You make mashed potatoes and gravy almost exactly how I do... Totally plain potatoes, gravy made from stock cube, corn starch and water. High salt, but high nutrient value and negligible fat. :-)
 
Or you could just google "mashed potato vs sweet potato" in any browser to return the same comparison chart.
 
goes off to see what wonders are returned when trying this with "Cheezy puffs" and "Twinkies"
 
+Will Kriski Me too!!!! Well, that's what I strive for as the gold standard. Can't say I'm perfect. But it is how I lost 120+ pounds... lots and lots of potatoes. :-) McDougall is awesome; so is Novick. 
 
Wow congrats! Novick is knowledgeable. I pick his brain. He's a calorie restricter and minimizes exercise due to longevity of lower calorie intake. But I like the calorie density approach. +Karin Curran

Thank you google for supporting and encouraging people to live a healthy lifestyle!
 
I wonder if it works on marijuana strains as well.
 
I'm buried way down, so doubt this gets read but... what a stupid comparison and, especially, stupid conclusion.  Same calories, lower carbohydrates would favour mashed for me.  How are they made?  With the low calories given I expect without cream but, why even post such firm conclusions without empirical data?  Shame on you Google.
