Instead of White Potatoes Try Sweet Potatoes
Baked, roasted, or mashed, sweet potatoes offer all the comfort-food satisfaction of white potatoes -- but with much more nutrition. One medium sweet potato delivers more than a day's worth of vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene), plus 57 percent more fiber and 55 percent more vitamin C than white potatoes. Rich and moist, they taste great without loads of butter or sour cream.
