So, I love carbs.... yes, I said it. But I reeeeeaally try not to consume them. Just a little bit will create a huge craving problem. I really limit myself when it comes to potatoes as well. Seriously, as a child my favorite food was mashed potatoes.... lol!!
When I was a kid, my mom would make sweet potatoes in a way that it would taste more like candy..... than an actual vegetable :) So definitely try to avoid that.... because that is not what we are going for here!
Sweet potatoes are loaded with antioxidants, vitamins A, vitamin C, manganese and B Vitamins. They are considered a starch so ½ cup = 1 serving. Remember we are allowed 2 servings per day of starches.
This is honestly not my favorite super food, so if you have any tasty recipes you'd like to share, please let me know! Roasted sweet potato fries are about as adventurous as I will get when it comes to these sweeties.
