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, 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 the absorption of sugars. This assists in removing cholesterol. It also slows down digestion so that you fell full longer. Therefore, you eat less. Adding complex carbohydrates also fuels your body for work outs. With all this in mind, sweet potatoes are a great addition to a healthy diet. However, portion control is important. A typical serving of sweet potatoes is about a half a cup in Ideal4UMeals.
