I think that sweet potatoes don’t get enough time in the spot light; most people just think of white potatoes, which are nutritionally inferior to sweet potatoes! Sweet potatoes decrease inflammation, have antioxidant properties in the digestive system, and help regulate blood sugar levels because of the fiber content.
The added healthy fat of the butter that is used to toast the sandwich bread actually increases the available vitamin A in the sweet potato: “Recent research has shown that a minimum of 3-5 grams of fat per meal significantly increases our uptake of beta-carotene from sweet potatoes.”
The Kitchn’s recipe caught my eye with their description: “Looking for something warm and hearty to eat for lunch? How about this sweet potato and kale grilled cheese? Yes, sweet potato on a sandwich — it’s absolutely delicious.”
