Ahh, sweet potatoes. Nutritious, versatile and oh so tasty. Like the bright orange colour suggests, sweet potatoes are rich in not only beta carotene, but also vitamin B6, vitamin D, vitamin C, potassium, iron and magnesium. 1 medium-sized sweet potato contains over 750% of the daily recommended intake for vitamin A and around 70% for vitamin C. And before you ask; no, you can not OD on vitamin A, provided it comes from a natural source and not pills. Whoever said you will be deficient in vital nutrients as a vegan should reconsider their statement right away . Seriously though, fruit and vegetables are without a doubt the most nutritious foods on the planet!
