Splendid Sweet Potatoes

 

Splendid Sweet Potatoes

 

Surprisingly, these delicious, fat-free, golden veggies (yes, potatoes are botanically classified as vegetables) are lower in calories than white potatoes. Eaten by itself -- without its high-calorie associates of butter, brown sugar and marshmallows -- a medium sweet potato only has about 100 calories.

  • Sweet potatoes are nutritional powerhouses. They are packed with the antioxidant vitamins A and C, and are the best low-fat source of vitamin E. They are high in fiber as well.
  • Consumption of sweet potatoes in the U.S. has grown from an average of 4.2 pounds per person in 2000 to 7.1 pounds in 2011.
  • Although sweet potatoes are sometimes labeled “yams,” true yams are a different vegetable entirely and are not commonly sold in American grocery stores.
  • For the best results, choose firm, smooth-skinned specimens when you shop. Bright orange and paler yellow varieties of sweet potatoes are harvested from August to October but are available in markets all year, since they store well.
