Meet...the SWEET POTATO
Sweet potatoes are incredibly filling and good for you. There are many different ways to prepare them, including baking, roasting, fries, and mashed. They are available year-round and are loaded with goodies.
They’re loaded with vitamins A and C, and also pack a punch when it comes to potassium, fiber and several B vitamins. In addition, sweet potatoes contain a number of antioxidants, including a high concentration of beta-carotene.
Collectively, these nutrients boost immunity, serve as anti-inflammatories, reduce risk of digestive problems and help regulate blood sugar, among other benefits.
Make sure to put sweet potatoes on your grocery list. You can substitute them for your white potatoes in any way that you would normally prepare white potatoes. Not only will you have a tasty meal, but you'll be contributing to your overall health and wellness.
