5 Healthy Sweet Potato Recipes

5 Sweet Potato Recipes from Weelicious

Potatoes are the basis for some of America’s favorite foods_ potato chips, tater tots, french fries, loaded baked potatoes. Unfortunately, those potato based foods aren’t a group you can be serving to your family day after day. The potato’s oft-ignored little sister, however, is something that can and SHOULD be incorporated into more of your meals. That’s right, we’re talking about sweet potatoes.

Chock full of vitamins A and C, beta carotene, iron and calcium, sweet potatoes should be a staple in your kitchen. And if it’s not for the health benefits, then it should at least be for some of the fun and tasty things you can do with them–which is basically everything you can do with a regular potato, just healthier!
