Sweet potatoes are my best friends, they cook easy, they are very healthy and delicious, children love them, how can you go wrong with sweet potatoes!
They control blood sugar, they have anti-inflammatory properties and the list goes on and on!
In many countries like Greece, they are expensive, but try to have them at least once a week, believe me, worth every penny if you ask me.
They pack so much goodness, it’s unbelievable!

Great with a BBQ, add a little protein like a piece of chicken or fish and you have a complete meal!
