Looking for a healthy and filling weight loss recipe? Try mashed sweet potatoes.
Bake at 350 for 30-40 min (depending on size), when cooled off a bit - remove skin. In a bowl combine peeled potatoes, real butter (our favorite is Irish butter), a pinch of sea salt... and mash...Absolutely delicious!
WEIGHT LOSS FACT: Sweet potatoes are an Amazing SUPERFOOD packed with both nutrients and a sweet flavor. The high amount of dietary fiber, the low-calorie content, and the high amount of water all work together to make sweet potatoes a great food if you are trying to lose weight. One of the main ways that sweet potatoes can help you lose weight is due to their high amount of dietary fiber.
DIABETIC? People with diabetes may also benefit from eating this root vegetable because it ranks low on the glycemic index and has less of an effect on blood glucose levels.
NUTRITION FACTS: Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene). They are also a very good source of vitamin C, manganese, copper, pantothenic acid and vitamin B6. Additionally, they are a good source of potassium, dietary fiber, niacin, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, and phosphorus.
