Sweet potato is a healthy carb – the gorgeous rich color tells you that this vegetable is full of beta carotene vitamin A!
Don’t let anyone tell you that this is a bad food for you – sweet potatoes are not responsible for obesity, its the marshmallows brown sugar and pecans. Have a simply roasted sweet potato and savor the flavor.

Rinse the sweet potatoes in water, sprinkle with salt, and roast on a baking sheet in a 350 degree oven for 45 to 60 minutes, or until soft when squeezed. Split and fill with a drizzle of sugar free maple syrup. For the first time, enjoy the caramelized flavor of a delicious sweet potato rather than covering it up with sugar and marshmallow – you will love it! The skin pops and the flavor is wonderful and sweet.
