Why We Love Sweet Potatoes
Our first Fall menu is up and one of the new items we’re excited about is the Stuffed Autumn Sweet Potato. We add in pears, cranberries, and pecans for that extra kick of “Fall” flavor, but sweet potatoes are an excellent base on their own.
🍠 A Variety of Vitamins and Minerals
Along with a good mix of macros, you’ll also find vitamins A, B6, and C, manganese, potassium, copper, and niacin in sweet potatoes.
🍠 Support Eye Health
Sweet potatoes are loaded with beta-carotene, which supports eye health and prevents vision loss.
🍠 Immune System Boost
Vitamin A is critical for a healthy immune system and you’ll find around 550% of your daily requirement in a sweet potato! This will keep you less susceptible to infections, support the creation of white blood cells, and speed up your recovery time if you do get sick.
🍠 Fiber for Digestion and Overall Health
Fiber comes in two forms and both are found in sweet potatoes. Not only can fiber help your digestion, it can also lower cholesterol, regulate blood sugar levels, and reduce inflammation in your body.
