Looking for something that tastes like your favorite holiday dessert but offers up an abundance of vitamins and minerals instead of expanding your waistline?
You got it! Sweet potatoes pack 438% of your daily value of infection-fighting vitamin A and, like carrots, sweet potatoes are a major source of skin-protecting beta-carotene. While bananas are often touted as the go-to source of potassium, a medium sweet potato has 28% more potassium than a banana. (The mineral helps your body absorb fluids to replace sweat losses.) So enjoy this quick, easy, and delicious treat as a post-workout snack, fast breakfast or, well, any old time!
