Nutritional values

Sweet potatoes contain plenty of energizing carbohydrates and, like carrots, a lot of beta-carotene, an antioxidant which helps protect the body's cells against free radical damage. 

You can leave the peel on the sweet potatoes, which will give you additional fiber; however, if you don't peel them, make sure to watch them extra carefully.
