  • Almost twice the recommended daily allowance of vitamin A
  • 42 percent of the recommendation for vitamin C
  • Four times the RDA for beta carotene
  • Sweet potatoes have more fiber than oatmeal (w/ skin)
  • All these health benefits with very few calories!


  • Use 3-4 sweet potatoes.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Wash sweet potatoes under cool running water.
  • Pierce deeply with knife or fork to allow steam to escape while cooking.
