Sweet potatoes are orange, which means they are loaded with beta caraintine and other carotenoids. Beta Caraintine is powerful for our bodies and helps ward of certain cancers.
Sweet potatoes boost our immune systems and are great for keeping eyesight at its best. If that is not enough sweet potatoes help protect us against aging. Sweet potatoes contain iron to help our red and white blood cells. They are a great source of magnesium, a mineral that helps us with stress. If that is still not enough sweet potatoes are great source of Vitamin C, D and B6.
Sweet potatoes are inexpensive and only about 100 calories for a medium size baked potato. I usually just bake ours and put a dab of butter on them and the kids love to sprinkle cinnamon sugar on theirs. Tell us your favorite sweet potato recipe!
