New You Health Tip: Incorporate sweet potatoes into your diet for a delicious and healthy dose of vitamins.

Sweet potato recipes are gaining popularity for two very simple reasons: they are filled with flavor and they are extremely healthy. Compared to their whiter counterparts, colorful sweet potatoes are packed with vitamin A, calcium, potassium, and vitamin C wrapped in a low calorie snack. Sweet potato recipes are not only delicious but also deliver a healthy dose of fiber (minus the unnecessary fat).

Get creative with these sweet potato recipes:

Salty and Sweet Potato Fries

This one is a no-brainer. Simply cut your potato into strands sized according to your preference. Sprinkle them with coconut oil, top them with sea salt and cinnamon and bake at 450 degrees until golden brown.

Sweet Potato and Onion Spinach Quesadillas

Microwave sweet potatoes for 15 minutes and grill onions separately. Cut potatoes open, remove “meat” and combine with onions and desired spices. Add mixture to tortillas then add to a skillet at medium high heat. Cook on both sides (approx. 2-3 mins) until crisp.

Sweet Potato Chips

Cut potatoes into thin slices and toss with desired amount of olive oil, salt, chipotle or chili powder and cumin. Place in over at 425 degrees and roast for 40 minutes turning once after 20 minutes. Dip in your desired dressing.
