    The Sweet Potato Is A February Food
    http://www.foodreference.com/html/sweet-pot-nutrition.html

    Nutritionists from the Center for Science in the Public Interests determined that sweet potatoes are the healthiest of all the vegetables by a very large margin.
    Sweet potatoes ranked 185 points while the next most nutritious, the potato, scored 184 points. Let’s look at what nutrition is found in the sweet potato.

    Points were added for dietary fiber, complex carbohydrates and natural sugar, vitamins A and C, protein, calcium and iron. They were subtracted for fat content especially saturated fat, cholesterol, sodium, added refined sugar and caffeine.

    Sweet potatoes have almost double the recommended dietary allowance (RDA) for Vitamin A, more than 40% of the RDA for Vitamin C, 4 times the RDA for beta carotene, and when the skins of the sweet potatoes are eaten there is more fiber than eating oatmeal.

    After I read the article listed above, I found numerous other articles which basically all agreed.

    I love sweet potatoes. I like to buy smallish ones, bake them, split them, and plop in some sour cream or maybe brown sugar and sour cream and use them as a side. I don't like the dishes with mashmallows, too sweet for me.

    I don't care for the marshmallow loaded version of sweet potatoes, but I love them plain with a little butter or any number of non traditional ways.

    I too prefer my sweet potatoes just baked with a little butter and a hint of nutmeg. But for when company comes, Sweet Potato Casserole is a real show stopper. The addition of the coconut really adds to the sweet potatoe.

    Those recipes all look good. I think we are going to bake some sweet potatoes and add some cinnamon. I always find hundreds of recipes for the food I am covering but obviously I can't list them all. That's why I try to always suggest other people add their favorite recipes.
