February is Sweet Potato Month! To celebrate, we\’re sharing 6 of our favourite alive sweet potato recipes.
February is sweet potato month! As strange as it may be to have a month dedicated to sweet potatoes, there’s actually plenty to celebrate. Just one medium cooked sweet potato contains 4 grams of fibre, 32 percent of our daily vitamin C, and an amazing 475 percent of our daily vitamin A! Vitamin A helps our bodies maintain healthy teeth, soft tissue, and skeletal tissue. It’s also famous for promoting healthy vision and healthy skin.
The humble sweet potato is also a good source of vitamin E, vitamin B6, potassium, manganese, and magnesium—talk about a nutritional powerhouse. So go ahead, give the sweet potato some love this month, and incorporate these alive recipes into your day!
