If you love your baked potatoes but you’d like to get more nutrition than what your typical “white” baked potato offers than you need to try baked sweet potatoes.

Not surprisingly, sweet potatoes top nearly everyone’s list for healthiest foods. Offering a whopping 438% of our needed daily vitamin A, 37% of our daily vitamin C, vitamin B6, 4 grams of dietary fiber, along with calcium, iron and potassium this colorful spud tips the scales at just 105 calories for one baked medium sized sweet potato and it has absolutely no fat to speak of.

Truth is, sweet potatoes rank number one for overall nutrition…above all other vegetables according to the nutritionists at “Center for Science in the Public Interest.” They can help to lower blood pressure and offer a low glycemic index.

White potatoes are good…but sweet potatoes are better so whenever you can substitute a colorful sweet potato for your bland white potato and take advantage of the extra nutrition go for it!

You can even create “loaded” sweet potatoes using the same toppings that you normally enjoy on your traditional baked potatoes. Unlike traditional potatoes, sweet potatoes also do well with sweet toppings like brown sugar, honey and maple syrup so don’t be afraid to be creative!

Here’s a great sweet potato recipe to get you started:
