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)
