You Bet they are! Sweet Potatoes Are a Healthy Choicer
Vitamins and minerals in sweet potatoes make them a healthy choice at mealtime. Orange sweet potatoes, for example, are one of the richest sources of beta-carotene, a carotenoid known for its eye health benefits and ability to reduce cancer risks.
Purple sweet potatoes are a good source of beta-carotene but are an even richer source of anthocyanin pigments, which act as antioxidants that can help reduce inflammation and boost your immune system. Purple sweet potatoes have about three times more anthocyanins than the average blueberry.
Note: I slice slice sweet potatoes about a fourth of an inch think, spray both sides with non fat Olive Oil and pop them in the air fryer. They’re great dipping in guacamole or hummus.
