Sweet Potato Frittata
One of my favorite winter vegetables (one that you can find at your local farmers market now) is sweet potatoes. Despite being a “starchy” food, yams and sweet potatoes are high in fiber (about 4 grams per medium sweet potato) and are full of nutrients, including:
Vitamin B1, B6, C
Beta Carotene (mostly in the orange sweet potatoes)
On top of being a nutritional powerhouse, eating sweet potatoes makes you feel fuller faster which is great if you’re trying to loose weight. Yes it’s a carb, but don’t get all crazy – it won’t make you fat. In fact, it’s a slow release carbohydrate with a low glycemic index providing little impact on insulin, even for those who are pre-diabetic or diabetic.One of my favorite Sunday breakfast recipes that includes sweet potatoes is a delicious and nutritious frittata.
