I love a great tasting carbohydrate, and sweet potatoes are one of my favorites. When eating healthy and clean you want to stick to complex carbohydrates. What I love about this sweet potato recipe, is I can make it in bulk, and my husband and I have plenty for the week.
This recipe is ONLY 3 ingredients and not time-consuming at all. I think the sweet potato has so much flavor that you don’t need to add much to enjoy the taste.
Chrissy’s Fun Food Fact:
Sweet Potato: George Washington, our first present, grew sweet potatoes on his farmland in VA. Also, sweet potatoes are a great source of fiber (when you eat the skin which is my favorite), vitamins E, C, B-6, and nutrients such as potassium, and iron. The leading producer of sweet potatoes in the USA is North Carolina who produce 40% of the national supply (Thank you, North Carolina).
