Sweet potatoes are one of those foods I genuinely don't think I could live without.

Filling, always tasty, and super versatile, they are also nutritional powerhouses in their own right. All the more reason to include more in your diet today!

Health benefits

Rich source of vitamin C keeping cells healthy and supported.
Good source of fibre to increase feelings of satiety and encourage digestion.
Source of potassium which supports good heart health and nervous system functioning.
Anti-inflammatory properties due to the presence of anthocyanin and other colour-related pigments.
