Feature Friday: Sweet Potatoes!

14 Oct

 Oh my goodness. Is it Friday already? The weeks are flying by and I feel like I cannot catch up. School, homework, studying, gym, blogging, cooking, cleaning, … I am so behind! Thank God it’s Friday because that is my day of the week to catch up on all of those things. Oh yeah, and write a pretty awesome post about my favorite things. 🙂

This week: Sweet Potatoes


Sweet potatoes are loaded with nutrition:

  • Rich in Vitamin A and C with means this potato is loaded with antioxidants
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Known to strengthen the immune system
  • High in fiber

My favorite ways to eat sweet potatoes:


Under almond butter…

In soup…

And now, IN OATMEAL!

please ignore the hideous photo, I was in a hurry!

A new fall favorite: cooked oatmeal with half of a baked sweet potato, maple syrup and cinnamon.


What is your favorite way to eat a sweet potato?

    Covered in peanut butter! Or in fry form. Or in oats. Too many choices!

    I’m a sweet potato fries kinda girl. Baked or fried! I love how they one up regular french fries with the nutrition, but I think they taste way better too.

    I am fairly certain I could live on sweet potatoes, they are so sooo tasty and versatile! But I do enjoy them baked smothered in almond/peanut butter and greek yogurt 😀

    Glad to meet another Michigan Vegan! Seva Restaurant in Ann Arbor makes the most amazing sweet potato fries with an amazing dipping sauce, but it’s not vegan. The ingredients I found out are just mayo and Clancy’s Fancy sauce! So now, I make the fries at home and accompany with the fabulous sauce made with vegenaise and CF. Yum!

    I like my sweet potatoes in the form of fries or tater tots! 😉 But a good old-fashioned baked sweet potato is always tasty, too! 🙂
