Does anyone else love these as much as I do? I feel myself looking foward to having them with one of my meals every evening, almost becoming the highlight of my diet.

So you felt the need to create a whole thread about it? I don't think it was a good idea to reveal to the general public that eating a sweet potato is the highlight of your day, not sure whether to rip on you or just feel bad.

But they are damn good.

Sweet Potatoes are the tits! I'm usually lazy so just microwave some oatmeal, but I typically have one a day. Tasty!

You're a fucking gorilla.

Boil them shits for 30 min, then mash them with garlic and a little butter. Fantastic.

I chop them up and boil them until tender/soft.

Had 425g of them with a heap of chicken breast for my P+C breakfast this morning.

May be a weird sounding breakfast but I look forward to it every morning!

That's about it. Just cook potatoes in the microwave, add more time so it gets really soft, scoop it out with a spoon, mash it up, add lots o' cinnamon. EAT THAT SHIT.

Fuck yea. Wash them, peel them, Ingest them. Dont ruin them by boiling/cooking/steaming. I remember awhile back i read some nonsense about burning off certain nutrients in vegetables through their preparation, so i started eating raw vegetables. Havent looked back since.

EAT EM RAW!!

Ha they do taste like carrots when raw. I don't how anyone can microwave them...every time I do they shrivel up and get dry and disgusting and resemble play-doh. I just bake them in the oven for an hour.

I just poke 4 big holes in my 'taters, and microwave for 10 mins. Turns out fine.

Hit em with a little salt too, brings a whole other dimension with the sweetness already in the sweet potato.

Alright so I just had my first one of these bad boys microwaved, and damn! These are good for you too so I can eat as many as I want now, right??? ^_^

How much does the glycemic index change with the method of preparation?
