Sweet Potato Deliciousness

One of my new food obsessions is sweet potato fries.  If you haven’t tried them yet, get up from your computer, go to the store and get the ingredients for this side dish.

If you haven’t noticed sweet potatoes are popping up in restaurants and food blogs everywhere. The claims are that sweet potatoes are better for you than regular potatoes, so of course, I did some research…

Turns out its true.

Sweet potatoes are a rich source of dietary fiber, natural sugars, complex carbohydrates, protein, carotenoids, Vitamin C, iron and calcium. They are great for treating stress symptoms, alleviating muscle cramps, preventing heart disease and are high in antioxidants.

Of course everything in moderation, but a great nutritional side dish, when you aren’t craving asparagus or broccoli.
