Why sweet potato?

...other than taste. Why should I eat it rather than any other carbs?

Because they're nutritious and stuff.

They'll also help with constipation! Phone Post 3.0

I'm extremely picky. Drove my Mom crazy when I was growing up. To this day there is still allot of stuff I don't eat to include tomatoes and onions. Both are fucking disgusting.

LOL

The thing is I'm cutting down on carbs a bit - nothing extreme - and just recently started doing sweet potato because it's in just about every fitness and bodybuilding recepie out there.

But, when I look at the nutrional value I don't see what the big deal is vs regular potatoes and similar.

Steroid soaked Yams are better :-) Phone Post 3.0

Heat up a pan about medium-high heat, add coconut oil, chop up sweet potatoes, throw them in the pan, stir, add steak seasoning, cook until you get the texture you like. Nutritious and delicious.

A few months back, I invested in one of those potato slicer things. Made prep even easier.

Good nutritional profile, lots of beta-carotene and potassium.

I don't like sweet stuff so this is a no go for me. I don't even eat cake or treats. Spicy and sour is what comes out of me.

They're not that sweet. You can dress them up with brown sugar and cinnamon and they're amazing, but it's a pretty subtle sweetness. Might be worth a try for you.
