Sweet potatoes, Ipomoea batatas, are the candy of the vegetable section – you probably just don’t realize it with your sense of taste all whacked out with processed sugars. Grilling or just building a summer fire – sweet potatoes are a no brainer, pick them up and some foil and you are good to go.
Sweet potatoes are a good source of vitamin C. While most people know that vitamin C is important to help ward off cold and flu viruses, few people are aware that this crucial vitamin plays an important role in bone and tooth formation, digestion, and blood cell formation. It helps accelerate wound healing, produces collagen which helps maintain skin’s youthful elasticity.
