Sweet potatoes are healthy for you too! They are a great source of fiber and Vitamins A, B and C! They are also a great antioxidant and anti-inflammatory food too. Seriously, so dang good for you but they are so tasty too.
A favorite sweet potato recipe of mine is a grilled (in foil) sweet potato. It’s basically candied on its own. I just add some butter and it’s like having dessert and a Thanksgiving casserole all in one. They are so delicious and good for you that I feed my dog one of these at least once a week. I’m pretty sure there are weeks that my dog eats better than I do but we both win with sweet potatoes!
