#EatWellLiveWell: Balsamic Sweet Potatoes

by -

Balsamic Sweet Potatoes from UnityPoint Clinic

Are you a fan of potatoes, but you’re ready to mix up how you’re eating them? Switch up your potato routine by introducing sweet potatoes into your diet. Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of vitamins and nutrients plus they are versatile when it comes to cooking. Need more reasons to try sweet potatoes? Take a look at these five reasons.

  • Vitamin B6. Sweet potatoes are packed with vitamin B6, which helps reduce homocysteine in our bodies. Homocysteine is an amino acid that has been linked with conditions such as heart attacks.
  • Vitamin D. Vitamin D is important for our immune system and overall health. This vitamin plays a role in our mood, energy levels and helps build strong and healthy bones.
  • Iron. Not only does iron have an effect on our energy, but it plays many other important roles within our body. Iron assists in red and white blood cell production, metabolizes protein and helps our immune system function properly.
  • Magnesium. This mineral is known as the relaxation and anti-stress mineral. Magnesium helps the functions of muscles, blood, the heart and nerves remain healthy.
  • Blood sugar. Unlike many other starchy foods, sweet potatoes release their sugars slowly into the bloodstream. This can help steady the levels of blood sugars and allow for steady amounts of energy.

Sweet potatoes can be made in a variety of ways. Whether they’re roasted, steamed, sautéed, pureed, grilled or baked, they’re delicious. Give this balsamic sweet potatoes recipe a try!
