  1. This is one of my favorite side dishes. I make it all the time. I like to sprinkle the sweet potatoes with cinnamon. Delicious!

    1. Us too! There are some great combos for sweet potatoes!

  2. Also try sprinkling with rosemary. Yum yum!

  3. Microwave the whole potatoe first for five minutes, cut into slices, drizzle olive oil, s/p to taste, then broil for 3-5mins on each side. Crispy and taste like the best darn potatoe chips ever. Less oven in the summer as well. Or, put in vege basket and put on grill instead of oven after microwave!

    1. Thanks for sharing these tips with our readers!

  4. It looks like you don't peel them first, is that right?

    1. That is correct - do not peel them. The peel provides some great flavor and fiber. Just don't forget to wash them first!

  5. About how many of these is a serving and how many calories per serving?

    1. I usually eat 4 oz - this would probably be around 80 calories.

  6. Can someone please explain to me what the advantages are to eating sweet potatoes? I've seen all sorts of recipes for eating clean but no explanations :) I'm in a process of trying to get my family on board. I'm a 40 yo mother of three boys and find your blog and IG page quite motivating! Thanks in advance!

  7. Nine Reasons Why You Should Eat Sweet Potatoes

    1. Sweet potatoes are high in antioxidants, which work in the body to prevent inflammatory problems like asthma, arthritis, gout, and many more.

    2. Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of carbohydrates for those with blood sugar problems. These fibrous root vegetables can help regulate blood sugar levels and prevent conditions like insulin resistance.

    3. Sweet potatoes are healthy for the digestive tract. Being rich in digestive fiber, especially when the skin is also consumed, it helps to relieve constipation and may prevent colon cancer.

    4. Sweet potatoes are good for those who are pregnant or trying to conceive because they are high in folate, which is essential for the healthy development of fetal cell and tissue.

    5. Packed with important vitamins and other nutrients, eating sweet potatoes can boost immunity by supporting the needs of the body.

    6. Sweet potatoes are good for preventing heart disease. High in potassium, sweet potatoes can help prevent the onset of heart attack and stroke. Potassium also helps to maintain fluid and electrolyte balance in the body, which is important for stabilizing blood pressure and regulating heart function.

    7. Sweet potatoes are good for alleviating muscle cramps. Potassium deficiencies are a leading cause of muscle cramps, as well injuries. By making sweet potatoes a regular part of your diet (along with proper exercise), you can expect an energy boost and fewer muscle cramps and injuries.

    8. Sweet potatoes are good for treating stress-related symptoms. The body tends to use a lot of potassium and other important minerals when it is under stress. Sweet potatoes provide important minerals that will help maintain balance throughout the body during times of stress.

    9. Sweet potatoes ranked number one in nutrition out of all vegetables by the Center for Science in the Public Interest because they are such a rich source of dietary fiber, natural sugars, complex carbohydrates, protein, carotenoids, vitamin C, iron and calcium.
