Food to eat and love – Sweet potato
A few days ago I stumbled on a post by the Food Revolution Network that listed the health benefits of sweet potatoes (by the way, you must follow John and Ocean Robbins, they are awesome!). What a joy! I absolutely love sweet potatoes and I always find different ways to enjoy them. Not only for lunch or dinner, but also for breakfast or as part of desserts.
So, sweet potatoes are rich in vitamin A, B3, B5, B6, C (reducing inflammation), magnesium (lowering stress and calming), choline and manganese (optimizing the brain), copper, high in fiber (supporting digestion and the heart), beta-carotene (improving eye health), and loaded with antioxidants that boost your immune system. They also have a lower glycemic index than regular potatoes that helps regulate blood sugar.
The post also explained different types of sweet potatoes and ways to eat them.
Here’s a graphic that I created with some of my favorite recipes for savory and sweet dishes. For the sweet recipes (pudding, pie, muffin), I usually boil the sweet potatoes, mash them, then add them to the rest of the ingredients. Of course, these are just some examples, but you can use your creativity by using many wonderful ingredients that Mother Nature has available. No need to devour processed foods filled with refined sugar and simple carbs. Eating healthy can be extremely delicious and satisfying!
