SWEET POTATOES

I finally got round to cooking some of the sweet potatoes I bought last week. I cut into it expecting the bright orange variety that seem to be everywhere these days. To my pleasant surprise, it turned out to be the pale yellow variety - the type I grew up with and love so much!

Here are a few great reasons to include this superfood in your regular diet:

- Rich in complex carbohydrates, fibre, vitamins A, B6 and C, manganese and potassium
- Low sodium
- Very low in saturated fat (0.02% per 100g)
- Easy to cook and versatile (boil, steam or bake)
- Good for your skin (produces collagen to help maintain the skin's youthful elasticity)

  1. This is awesome.I love sweet potato and I see you have made an enticing dish from it. Its nice that you have also listed the benefits. From experience, it doesn't fill one up like yam, its definitely lighter. Keep up the excellent job!
