These sweet potato fries from @food4tots looks amazing!
Sweet potatoes are not only naturally sweet, but also packed with a nutritional punch. They are rich in dietary fiber, complex carbohydrates, carotenoids, vitamins (A, C, E, B2, and B6) and essential minerals (manganese, potassium, magnesium, iron and calcium). Furthermore, sweet potatoes have more vitamin C, fewer calories, more fiber and fewer total cabs than white potatoes. Although they contain more sugar, they have a low glycemic index whereby the sugar is released slowly into the bloodstream. This means that you will get to maintain a steady amount of energy instead of experiencing a sudden jump in blood sugar level. If we prepare them in a healthy way and eat in moderation, it should not pose any significant health risks to us. (source: Live Science ). Thus, it is one superfood that I will not miss out in my family’s diet.
