I know what you’re thinking. Sweet potatoes? Isn’t Thanksgiving over? But how can you not love a good-for-you root vegetable that actually gets healthier when you add fat to it? According to Whole Foods, “Recent research has shown that a minimum of 3-5 grams of fat per meal significantly increases our uptake of beta-carotene from sweet potatoes.”
Sweet potatoes aren’t just kinda healthy – they top the Center for Science in the Public Interest’s Best 10 Foods list. The Center calls them a “nutritional All-Star – one of the best vegetables you can eat.”
