Sweet Potatoes


If you're tired of regular potatoes or your usual starches, try sweet potatoes for a change of pace. Sweet potatoes taste great roasted with chicken or turkey, or sliced and baked as fries. They're a great source of vitamin A, along with some other orange foods, such as carrots, pumpkin, and cantaloupe. Just be sure to watch your vitamin A intake during pregnancy, because excessive amounts have been linked to fetal malformations. Sweet potatoes and other sources of vitamin A are best eaten every other day.
