Sweet potatoes are the dream ingredient for us Paleo people. They have a lower glycemic index than normal potatoes, so they impact our blood sugar less. You can have a creamy mash with your lean protein and not have to deal with the sugar crash later on.
Also, they’re seriously delicious and incredibly versatile. As you’ll see in our round up of paleo sweet potato recipes, you can turn them into wafffles, use them to cover chicken nuggets, and even make them into a low carb chocolate pudding!
