Three Ways to Enjoy Sweet Potatoes

Sarah Stanley

Besides Valentine's Day, did you know that February is also Sweet Potato Month? Sweet Potatoes are an awesome source of Vitamins A, C and B6, Manganese, Calcium, and Potassium to name a few. They are also a healthy carb - perfect to eat before a race! Pair with a healthy fat (avocado, fish, hemp, flax seed oil or ground flax seed) so you can get the full source of beta-carotene.

Here are three healthy ways to enjoy sweet potatoes!

1) I like to bake them at 375* for an hour or so depending on your oven. Then mash them up with a little olive oil, sea salt, pepper, nutmeg and cinnamon. Add some hemp hearts and you have a great start to your healthy food plate!

2) You can also peel or leave the skins on and cut into pieces. Roast at 375* for 30 minutes. Then grate fresh ginger, dash of sea salt, a drizzle of honey and a sprinkle of cinnamon and/or nutmeg.

3) Make healthy sweet potato fries by cutting into strips after peeling. Lay on greased baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil, a little sea salt, and bake at 375* or until done. Kids young and old love them!
