If you are the "pizza ananas" type. Then give it a try. But you could cook them in the oven, just vegi mix with some meat. Or like chips... or instead of carrots

Well they are renewing glycemic index with a new study, it few years to go, but who know maybe sweet potatoes will be safe again.

'The glycemic index study was made by test subjects not being allowed to eat anything and then being allowed to eat one item and then measured. How ever they have found out now when you combine stuff you get totally different results in some cases. So who knows in the future might be only allowed to bake sweet potatoes if you eat them with tuna.

That's typical. Eating protein with carbs slows down the absorption of the carbs.

Well, Chief, they are called sweet potatoes for a reason.... I agree that when baked well they turn into delicious sugar bombs.

I agree that diabetics, or folks cautious about glycemic index might do very well to be cautious of this tuber.

We are very non-typical, and I don't want to inspire envy, but the doctor told us that my Beloved Wife and I both could stand to gain about five pounds each. One of the reasons I like sweet potatoes is they have a great caloric punch. When I am able to make a fire they are a great camping food. (they don't do well on a propane stove, unfortunately). If you give them the cooking time, they have a great weight to caloric load ratio.

And, of course, marshmallows on top helps enormously.

Cheers!

Sweet Potatoes, New Info to Me

Sweet potatoes, plain, for me, are slightly better than Brussels sprouts, which I don't consider a food, just an an annoying side dish that's inedible. Sweet potatoes with marshmallows are no longer food. They're just icky.
