National Cook A Sweet Potato Day – Lunch & Dinner

Sweet potato does the heart good!

Sweet potatoes are not only great for our complexion, but also an excellent source of vitamin A, which can support good vision, the immune system, and bone growth. Sweet potatoes are a good source of vitamin B-6, magnesium, and vitamin C.

Many people confuse the sweet potato with a yam, the two are different. A yam is a starchy tuber while the sweet potato is truly a sweet root vegetable. The sweet potato also comes in a variety of sizes and colors, including pale to bright orange, white and purple. High in fiber and low in fat and calories, this root vegetable is a healthful alternative to snack foods when prepared without added butter, sugar or salt.

A sweet Potato is not a YAM

No matter how you cook a sweet potato, they are a delight morning noon or night! A few lunch/dinner recipes to try:
