Sweet potatoes (with peanut butter) rock!

One of my favorite foods is the sweet potato.  Sweet potatoes are incredibly nutritious, are very easy to prepare, and taste amazing.  I eat several per week.

Some of my favorite ways to enjoy sweet potatoes are:

1.  Microwaved with peanut butter on top (raisins are good too!)—This makes a simple lunch, and the extra calories from the peanut butter make it a bit more substantial (and tasty).

One of the easiest and tastiest lunches!

2.  Sweet potato fries—like French fries, but a million times better.

3.  Diced sweet potatoes—Like the fries, but a different shape.  Last time I made fries, I almost lost a digit.  I dice them these days because I find it easier.

Tossed with olive oil, garlic powder, chili powder, and black pepper. Baked at 350°F for about 30 minutes.

4.  Mashed sweet potatoes—A holiday favorite.  Or you could add a ton of brown sugar and marshmallows to make a casserole, but I think they are sweet enough as is.

5.  Sweet potato soup—warm, sweet, and savory!

6.  Sweet potato pie—It’s pie.  With sweet potatoes.  No explanation needed.

If you haven’t tried a baked (or microwaved) sweet potato with peanut butter, get on it!  You will thank me!

How do you eat your sweet potatoes?

Happy eating!
