National Sweet Potato Awareness Month
November 29, 2017
Are sweet potatoes a regular part of your diet? If not, it should be.
This great vegetable is delicious, packed with nutrients and is easy to prepare in a wide variety of recipes. Sweet potatoes are one of the top vegetables loaded with beta-carotene, and they help fight heart disease, cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, and asthma. Sweet potatoes are high in vitamin A, vitamin B6, vitamin C, fiber, thiamine, niacin, and potassium.
For National Sweet Potato Month, try eating sweet potatoes fried, baked, stuffed in a pie, or baked in a casserole. Yum!
