Super Healthy Sweet Potatoes are Good for More Than Just Baking (Includes 2 Recipes)

by Tony Isaacs
author of Cancer's Natural Enemy

(The Best Years in Life) Sweet potatoes are among the world's healthiest foods and most delicious foods. Their health benefits, including weight management and cancer fighting abilities, far exceed those of ordinary white and yellow fleshed potatoes. They are great sources of vitamin A and also contain vitamin B6, vitamin C, calcium, iron, magnesium and potassium. They are also a great source of dietary fiber.

As their rich orange color indicates, sweet potatoes are high in carotenoids like beta carotene and other carotenoids - noted for their anti-cancer compounds and a world of other health benefits including protecting and restoring eye health, heart disease prevention and boosting the immune system. Another benefit of sweet potatoes is that they are naturally sweet and their natural sugars are slowly released into the bloodstream, helping to ensure a balanced and regular source of energy, without the blood sugar spikes linked to fatigue and weight gain.

Many people are not aware of how versatile sweet potatoes can be in the kitchen. Besides baking them, they can be roasted, pureed, steamed, or grilled and used in a wide variety of dishes including soups, curries, gratins, latkes, smoothies and even veggie burgers.

Following are two recipes, one simple and the other only slightly more involved, which provide examples of the many ways sweet potatoes and other healthy items can be combined to make dishes which can be used in a healthy diet. Enjoy!

(As always, choose organic content and fresh content as much as possible for the healthiest recipe. Also, wash all fruits and vegetables.
