SWEET POTATO

I love sweet potatoes. They are the perfect meal, or maybe make a meal perfect. They are not yams!!and are not even in the same family as yams. The sweet potatoes the farm grows have a deep orange flesh. They are loaded with complex carbohydrates (these are the good ones, people!) and fiber.  
 
QUICK IDEAS: bake in the oven at 350 and eat with hummus; make fries
