Good old sweet potatoes!
You can mash them, bake them, fry them, dice them, blend them.
You can have them as a savoury side or turn them into sweet muffins and pies.
They are quite the all rounder, and we love adding them to our meals at Nourishd.
Why are they so freakin fab you ask?
Well, they are naturally sweet tasting but their natural sugars are slowly released into the bloodstream, helping to maintain a balance of energy without the bloody sugar spike.
They are also high in vitamin B6 and are a good source of vitamin C and Iron to help boost your immune system.
Sweet potatoes are also a great source of Vitamin D, which helps to build healthy bones.
If your looking for an anti – stress vegetable, sweet potatoes are a winner as they are jam packed with magnesium which can help reduce stress and anxiety. Magnesium can also help you sleep better so chow down on these babies for some restful shut eye.
Sweet potatoes contain significantly high amounts of fibers, which are essential in promoting a well-functioning digestive tract, as well as preventing constipation.
So in summary, sweet potato is pretty darn amazing! Add it to your diet and enjoy the benefits today! ( We do!)
