Having a hard time fitting vegetables into your meals on a daily basis? Is your family forgoing their veggies because they don’t find them tasty enough?
Packed with vitamins A and C as well as fiber and potassium, sweet potatoes are a great addition to any meal.
We’ve got two simple and satisfying ways to start incorporating sweet potatoes into your diet. First, substitute high-fat and fried side dishes with these baked sweet potato fries. Sweet potatoes have a higher nutritional value than white potatoes — so they make for a great substitute for French fries and crunchy potato chips.
Swap cornbread for a sweet potato the next time you make chili. High fiber sweet potatoes can fill you up and keep you satisfied longer. In our version, we used a sweet potato as a serving bowl for chili.
- Sweet potatoes
- 2 tsp canola oil
- Your favorite chili
