    Lower glycemic index and have more nutrients than the other spuds.

    They also have alot of fiber. Especially the skin. Sweet potatos taste like a dessert to me with a little cinnamon and splenda.

    I gobble down sweet potatoes with nothing added. I think they taste great.

    I developed a love of sweet potatoes and yams from my grandma. (I lived with her for 9 years). She used to bake them in the oven or just microwave them. I would eat them plain as snacks when I was in middle school.

    So how are you guys preparing your taters?

    Bake them? For how long? I got some this weekend @ the grocery store and they are a huge spud. Do you cut them in half and then just eat half at a time?

    Yams are not as sweet as sweet potato. But these are harder to find (you could look in Asian grocery stores). You could also look for Taro Root... Similar to potato/yam and not very sweet but the GI is much better than potato's.

    Problem with other potatoes is that the GI is very variable and it is hard to determine just what it will be after cooking...

    In some parts, especially southern US, sweet potatoes are called Yams. But i know which tuber you are referring to.

    So yams are not sweet even though they have a higher natural sugar content than sweet potatoes? http://www.gnc.com/health_notes/heal...002009&lang=en

    Sweet potatos are really sweet? Somehow I donĀ“t find it to be sweet. They are something, not sweet.

    Thanks guys. I told my dad to pick some up at the grocery store and he just looked at me funny. But, he knows I know what Im doing so he got some. We had a roast, sweet potatoes and green beans. It was great! In my opinion Meat and Taters is the best muscle building meal if you have the right meat and potatoes. Thank for the help.

    ?? As I said in this thread:
    Yams v's Sweet Potato Yams are more starchy and less moist than sweet potato....

    To me they are nowhere near as sweet...

    you won't find a real yam in a market in the US unless it has been imported. you have to go to the Caribbean, South America or Africa to find them. the "yams" sold in the us are not even remotely close to the real thing. real yams are sweeter than the US sweet potatos and grow very large up to 6-8 feet long...
