So we all know that sweet potatoes go great with thanksgiving meals and make tasty fries (or as Aussies would say ‘hot chips’), but have you ever tried juicing one? Well I hadn’t either until today! And the results was… well, SWEET! But on top of tasting great, sweet potatoes are yet another very healthy food. Just like the celery I wrote about yesterday, sweet potatoes are very high in vitamin A, while also being filled with vitamin C, vitamin B6, potassium and manganese. The sweet potato is also a source of copper and iron, which is great for your blood. It also contains all of the essential amino acids (that’s proteins) that your body requires (hence ‘essential’), so you can ignore all those false claims about not getting enough proteins from fruits and veggies!
So what are you waiting for? Go buy some sweet potatoes and start adding them to your juices!
