Most people like Thanksgiving for the junk food and turkey, but what do you think about the weird marshmallow orange stuff your grandma eats. Those are Candied yams. They are made of sweet potatoes. Some people do not like  them alone or at all, but if you eat them like this, I bet you will! If you do your body will thank you. Sweet potatoes have many health benefits. Sweet potatoes are a rich source of fibre as well as containing a good array of vitamins and minerals including iron, calcium, selenium. They are a good source of most of our B vitamins and vitamin C. One of the key nutritional benefits of sweet potato is that they are high in an antioxidant known as beta-carotene. Sweet potatoes are one of the most versatile and healthful vegetables available.  People with diabetes may also benefit from eating this root vegetable because it ranks low on the glycemic index and has less of an effect on blood glucose levels. So even if you still only want to try it for the marshmallow top you will at least get some good health benefits with it!
