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.
