Satisfy Your Starch Cravings

When you’ve got that hankering that only a good ol’ potato can satisfy? Consider the creative uses of the tasty “Sweet Potato” — and don’t let the name fool you. Sweet Potatoes are low on the glycemic index AND you’ll get a load of nutritional benefits (such as over 200% of your daily recommended Vitamin A just from 1 single average-sized potato!)

 

 

 Usage Ideas:

  • Make Sweet Potato Fries (oven baked of course)
  • Make ‘Plantation Sweet Potato Salad”  [click here for the recipe]
  • In a lunch-rush? Just microwave a single sweet potato for  5-8 minutes (depending on size) drizzle with a little olive oil and sprinkle with fresh herbs or garlic!
