Sweet potatoes are the perfect nutrient-packed veggie to keep your body going in the early parts of the new year. They are easy to cook, full of vitamins and minerals, low in calories, and high in fiber and best of all, they taste great! Sweet potatoes and yams are very similar, and can be used in place of each other in most recipes. There are even sweet potatoes that are purple on the inside!
Lots of people think of sweet potatoes for Thanksgiving dinner, then forget about them for the rest of the year, but they are useful in any way you’d use another potato, or many other veggies!
Roast them and add chives for dinner, roast and smash one up for breakfast with an egg on top, or sprinkle in a bit of cinnamon and just a bit of butter for a sweet after school snack.
