The Natural Nurturer

sweet potato

Sweet potato, a vibrant orange root veggie most popular in the fall and winter, has a natural sweetness that adds a delightful twist to savory dishes and a comforting touch to sweet treats, such as blondies and cookies. Whether roasted, mashed, or baked into a dessert, sweet potatoes are the filling, sweet stars of the produce aisle–boasting a delectable flavor along with loads of fiber and beta-carotene, a powerful antioxidant. Add into a smoothie, waffles, muffins, or oatmeal for breakfast. Or, work into soup, Shepherd’s pie, or even cornbread! And, for a slightly different side, try some baked sweet potato fries.
