Sweet Potato the Super Food
Last year I utilized the new Treasure Island Sweet Potato vines in my patio containers and this gardener found a new appreciation for these tuberous vegetables. And I’m ready to celebrate this superfood with my fellow gardeners. This root vegetable has seen an increase in popularity, especially compared to ‘regular’ potatoes, due in part to being a healthier option. Sweet Potatoes are lower in carbs, higher antioxidant levels like lutein, have increased levels of vitamins, a lower glycaemic index which means less blood sugar spikes, and are a great source of fiber, iron, and calcium.
The best part? They are easy to grow!
