Yes a little lower GI and a little more fiber then a regular tater. A very good substitute IMO, has about 27-30gr of carbs per 4oz.~ Nothing can kill the Grimace!!

A sweet potato is more yellow-golden in the inside.
A yam is the orange inside.
S.P.- 6.7c per ounce
Yam- 8.4c per ounce

Yams are actually lower-GI than sweet potatoes, although I usually think of yams as sweeter. Either way, you're doing yourself a huge favor by eating these; some of the best overall complex carbs you can find!

I'm going to start incorporating these into my diet.

Anyone have any good recipes for it? I went to Outback Steakhouse a few nights ago, and they use brown sugar, cinnamon, and some butter with it. It was really good. I would probably use something else instead of butter while I'm cutting.

Twice baked sweet potatos - with cinnoman . Can't go wrong with that!

I don't mind sweet potatoes, but I absolutely love chopping baked potatoes and throwing them on the skillet with some garlic and herb seasoning.

the local grocery store (publix) sells em pre-shrink wrapped so you can just pop em in the microwave and they self steam. I'm thinking i need to get some of the pumpkin pie spices to shake on them

hmm... i never thought of putting those in my diet before.. i going to have to try it now..

I usually just eat them raw, they're all sweet and crunchy and portable. Plus it's fun to watch all the strange looks while you're wandering around eating a sweet potato like a banana.

the pumpkin pie spice with no sugar works very well on sweet potatoes btw

Then I added cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice and the splenda brown sugar they have out now. I mashed them all up together and it tasted excellent. Pretty much like one of those Outback sp's that was mentioned earlier. I didn't measure out the various seasonings, so you'd just have to eyeball it and season to taste. Good stuff.

I ate homemade healthy pizza and a homemade cheeseburger right now.
Heineken is the greatest beer ever (with the exception of Dos Equis and many others).

Didn't add any sweet potatoes. Just wanted to mention that I had pizza, and it was delicious.

Mmmmm, sweet taters. Cut'em into strips, bake for 15-20min, and you have a great french fry substitute. Throw the suckers into a baggy and you got a great on the go treat.
