Sweet potatoes are one of my favorite vegetables, and we go through them like crazy at my house. They also happen to be great for you! They’re great sources of vitamins B6, A, C, and E, as well as potassium and manganese. In other words, they’re good for your heart, skin, and eyes. Plus, they pack a tremendous fiber-punch with nearly 7g per serving (twice as much as other types of potatoes). Another thing about sweet potatoes is that there’s so much you can do with them! Here are 5 of my favorite ways to enjoy sweet potatoes:
