I am excited that sweet potatoes make the list of foods that I want to have 5+ servings of a day.  They taste great and pack a nutrient packed punch.  Don’t be scared of the carbs in a serving of sweet potatoes.  Carbs are not bad when they are attached to so many nutrients.  Plus, these are simple to cook.  Cut one in half, at a bit of salt and pepper and back in the oven.  Scoop out the potato from the skin.  My favorite is to peal the sweet potato, cut into about 1 inch circles, drizzle a little bit of oil and add salt and pepper and cook them on the grill.  You can also roast them this way in the oven.  Add sweet potatoes to your diet now.  You won’t regret the taste and your body will thrive on the nutrients.
