Did you know sweet potatoes are one of the oldest vegetables known to man? Sweet potato relics have been found in Peru dating back 10,000 years. They are also extremely healthy being an excellent source of vitamin A, vitamin C, manganese, copper, potassium, and fiber just to name a few. This recipe is a simple healthy way to start your morning.
