Sweet potatoes are a fantastic, healthy, fitness food and should form a staple of any healthy diet. Not only are they a good source of carbohydrates but they are also chock full of a wide variety of vitamins and minerals including vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin B6. potassium, dietary fiber, vitamin B1, vitamin B2. They are also lower on the Glycemic Index than white potatoes which means they result in a lower spike in blood sugar levels after eating them. You should be able to find sweet potatoes at your local supermarket but I like to buy them from Muscle Food, a UK based fitness food retailer. Muscle Food has grown incredibly fast over the past few years after appealing to the fitness minded individuals in the UK by supplying healthy foods at often heavily discounted prices to supermarkets in the UK. I often use a Muscle Food discount code that you can find for even further discounts and even more savings.
