Sweet Potatoes: My Favorite Carb!



Sweet potatoes are my favorite complex carb. I eat them because I love carbs, but I'm trying to avoid refined carbohydrates. Sweet potatoes are a great option for many reasons. They're a good source of vitamin C. They are high in antioxidants that can help to reduce your risk of chronic diseases like cancer and cardiovascular disease. They provide your body with a slow burning form of energy so they don't spike your blood sugar. They're a good source of fiber, helping you to feel full longer. Plus they're delicious once you've acquired a taste for them. Yes, believe it or not, there are quite a few people I've encountered who turn up their nose at this starchy root vegetable.


I rounded up a handful of sweet potato recipes that prove they're not just a Thanksgiving side dish. Check out the recipes below, and let me know if you try one.
