Sweet Potatoes

Filed under: Food, Health — rvchua @ 3:19 pm

I wish they would serve boiled sweet potatoes in the canteen to take away my growing hunger pains in the afternoon.

Aside from providing ample amounts of vitamin A, sweet potatoes are a weight-loss wunderkind: they help increase levels of adiponectin, the blood-sugar-regulating hormone, in the body, and have a relatively low glycemic index rating, which can help prevent blood-sugar spikes after you eat. This, coupled with their already sweet and fibrous nature, can help keep hunger and sugar cravings away.
