Oh my happy #sweetpotato
These tuberous roots are among the most #nutritious #vegetables
and is an excellent source of the #antioxidants
beta-carotine, and Vitamin C.
QUICK TIP: #EAT
Brush the extra dirt off your #sweetpotatoes
but when eaten with the skin on, a sweet #potato
has as much #fiber
as half a cup of oatmeal!
DID YOU KNOW?
🍠 Eating sweet potatoes is a smart move if you have high #bloodpressure
(That’s because they’re rich in potassium, a mineral known for bringing pressure down). You’ll get more #potassium
from a sweet potato than a banana.
keep skin and eyes #healthy
due to the high levels of beta-carotene
🍠 They may help your body stave off infections. The beta-carotene and #VitaminC
May also help combat #heartdisease
🍠Vitamin C in these vegetables protect against complications of #diabetes
such as nerve and eye damage
🍠 The famous Nurses’ Health Study at @harvardmed
(Harvard Medical School) even found that women who eat lots of foods rich in beta-carotene, like sweet potatoes- reduced their risk of #breastcancer
by as much as 25% !!
👩🏾🌾 My recommendations:
👉🏾 Bake thick sticks coated with extra virgin olive oil and five-spice powder
👉🏾Add to hash browns
👉🏾 Make a meal of baked sweet potato topped with cooked spinach, turkey, and shredded Swiss.
