Why do we all love sweet potato?
For years the nation has fed the family a meal pretty much based around white potatoes. Cheap, filling and lots of variation. So why has the sweet potato suddenly raced to the top spot when it comes to fries, jackets and mash?
Its become pretty trendy amongst the healthy conscious of today to ditch the white potato in favour of the sweet potato but do you know the facts?
We've put the macros head to head to break down the facts.
With less calories and fewer carbs, its no wonder we are all opting for orange over white. The sugar content may put some people off and push them to stay traditional.
We always use sweet potato at The Skinny Kitchen for this reason. It's the skinny potato!
