Not all potatoes are created equal! These sweet tubers pack an antioxidant and antiinflammatory punch. Sweet potatos help to stabalize blood sugar (surprised?), are high in beta-carotene, are high in vitamin C, and high in fiber which can also aid with weight loss. Best eaten with 3-5g of healthy fat to maximize absorption, sweet potatoes are a must have!
Check out these easy and delicious ways to incorporate more sweet potatoes into your daily diet:
- Slice them into fry like or bite sized shapes and roast them with a little coconut/avocado oil, salt and pepper
- Bake a large batch in the oven or microwave and use as an easy side dish or salad topping
- Used sweet potatoes instead of white potatoes the next time you make mashed potatoes
