Love Your Heart, Love Your Taters
Did ya’ll know that February is National Heart Health Month and National Sweetpotato Month? Coincidence? We think not! We all know our favorite little veggies are healthy, but do you know just how great they really are for your heart?
Sweetpotatoes are chock full of Vitamin C, which is not only good for our immune systems but also helps to prevent coronary artery disease. Fiber is also high in these little spuds which helps to lower cholesterol. And many are surprised to learn that sweetpotatoes are also packed with antioxidants which are linked to reduce risk of chronic diseases and cancer. Do your heart a favor and serve some sweetpotatoes!
