W3D2 – On Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes are your friend. It’s a special kind of friendship, in that you should eat them (1,2,3).

The bullet points:

  • Potatoes (both white and sweet) are great sources of “safe starch”.
  • You should avoid the skins (especially on white potatoes) due to glycoalkaloid content.
  • Organic is best, especially for white potatoes.
  • Sweets may be a better option, because white potatoes have been shown to interfere with human gene expression (this may or may not be a terrible thing – we’re not really sure yet).
  • Check out their nutritional profile below.
