If your meal doesn’t feel complete without a little something sweet, these toothsome tubers are a healthy solution. Despite their natural honeyed flavor, they’re surprisingly low in sugar with only 7 grams (that’s less than 2 teaspoons) in a 4-ounce baked sweet potato. In addition, you’ll score loads of slowly digested complex carbohydrates and filling fiber. Try sweetening things up even more with a sprinkle of cinnamon or nutmeg. Or add something a little spicy, like in the recipe below.
