Simply Delicious Sweet Potatoes

The sweet potato is sweet because of the natural enzyme that converts the starch to sugar when the potato matures and when it is cooked. Some people like it even sweeter with a little added cinnamon and brown sugar. The sweet potato is also one of the healthiest foods in the vegetable kingdom. It is low in calories, high in fiber, has lots of vitamin B6, vitamin C, potassium and iron. In addition to this awesome nutrient profile, the sweet potato has an amazing amount of beta carotine, wwhich also converts to vitamin A in the body when needed. Beta carotene is what gives the sweet potato its deep orange color. eating just one sweet potato supplies your body with entire amount of beta- carotene you need for the entire day. That's great news because beta- carotene plays a critical role in keeping your immune system strong and your eyes healthy.
