Fit Food: The Benefits of Sweet Potatoes

Whether you want to bulk up or lose weight, working this fiber-rich vegetable into your diet will help you reach your fitness goals. Here, six easy recipes.
A simple baked sweet potato makes a great fiber-rich snack or side. Just toss an unpeeled sweet potato into the oven at 400 degrees and let cook for 30–40 minutes or until soft. You can also nuke them on high for 4–6 minutes. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt or, for some extra kick, drizzle some hot sauce or sriracha on top.
