You gotta love the sweet potato
It's not going to win any Iron Chef competitions, but you can't go wrong with a simple baked sweet potato. They're on sale this week for 33 cents a pound!!! Bake the potato, throw in some sinfully delicious fat-free I Can't Believe it's not Butter (5 calories a tablespoon!!!), and you have the winning combination! Glorious, indeed.
A little more on the awesomeness of the sweet potato:
One sweet potato has almost twice the daily RDA for vitamin A, 40% RDA for vitamin C, four times the recommended amount of beta carotene, and (when eaten with the skin) more fiber than oatmeal! The caloric damage? 120-160 calories.
