10. Sweet potatoes
Sweet potatoes are filled with fiber and other nutrients. They’re a good source of vitamin A, C, potassium and calcium. Sweet potatoes are also high in beta-carotene, which may help prevent cancer and heart disease.
Sweet potatoes can be eaten baked or boiled. You can cook them just like regular potatoes but they don’t need to be peeled before cooking because they have such a thin skin that it doesn’t need to be removed.
It’s important not to overindulge on sweet potatoes though! While they’re healthier than white potatoes due to their higher levels of vitamins A & C, they still contain cholesterol so it’s best not eat them more than once per week if you want optimal health benefits.
