Sweet Potatoes are high in fiber, vitamins A + C, potassium, & folic acid. They're a staple of the traditional Okinawan diet (a Blue Zone). Before World War II (and the onslaught of western diets), Okinawans got a whopping 70% of daily calories from sweet potatoes!
Dan Buettner reports: Okinawans eat purple sweet potatoes, including the leaves--eaten as greens in miso soup. Like other sweet potatoes, they contain anti-oxidants, called sporamin, which possess a variety of potent anti-aging properties.
