Benefits of adding sweet potatoes to a healthy diet:
Sweet potatoes fall under the starch category. So, are sweet potatoes something you should include in your daily diet? Yes, they are. Sweet potatoes are from the complex carbohydrate category. Of all carbs, complex carbs are best for a healthy diet. Some of the benefits of complex carbs are that they slow down the absorption of sugars. This assists in removing cholesterol. It also slows down digestion. Eating food that slows digestion, keeps you full longer. And being full longer reduces the amount of food you eat. Another reason to add complex carbohydrates to your diet is to fuel your body. So, sweet potatoes are great to eat before or after work outs.
With all this in mind, sweet potatoes are a great addition to a healthy diet. However, portion control is important. Whenever adding higher carbs to your diet always keep servings sizes to one serving. Ideal4umeals chef’s and portioning staff are trained to follow portioning guidelines for sweet potatoes. A typical serving of sweet potatoes is about a half a cup.
