Sweet Potato Cookie

Sweet potato cookie

Another healthy cookie…

Sweet potatoes are high in Vit B6, Vit C, Vit D, iron, magnesium and potassium, carotenoids and powerful antioxidants. Their natural sugars are slowly released into the bloodstream, helping to ensure a balanced and regular source of energy, without the blood sugar spikes linked to fatigue and weight gain.
Recently I read that sweet potatoes help against aging and is one of the best breakfasts for people trying to reduce weight.
