Today, I am thankful for something simple: sweet potatoes. Why, you may ask? Well, I LOVE potatoes. Mashed, boiled, roasted, baked, sauteed, fried, I love 'em all! But, often these delicious delights are not necessarily the best for you nutritionally. Enter the sweet potato!
Prior to about a year ago, my only experience with sweet potatoes was the casserole my mom makes for Thanksgiving. It's loaded with brown sugar and marshmallows, and to be honest I don't really like it much. But when I decided to try to eat more healthy foods I decided to give the sweet potato another chance, since they are much better for you then regular potatoes. I like to boil and mash, or bake and mash them, with a little butter, salt, and pepper, and they are delicious! I am thankful to have found a food that is both tasty and good for me :)
