Baking Sweet Potatoes in the Microwave

Sweet potatoes from our garden
Baking sweet potatoes does not have to be an elaborate process; they can be easily baked in a microwave. Sweet Potatoes are available all year long, taste great, low in calories, high in vitamin A and C and good for you.
According to Worlds Healthiest Foods, “Sweet potatoes contain a wealth of orange-hued carotenoid pigments. In countries throughout Africa, in India and in the Caribbean, sweet potatoes have been shown to be a highly effective way of providing school age children with sizable amounts of their daily vitamin A. In some studies, sweet potatoes have been shown to be a better source of bioavailable beta-carotene than green leafy vegetables. Because sweet potatoes
are available in many countries on a virtual year-round basis, their ability to provide us with a key antioxidant like beta-carotene makes them a standout antioxidant food.”
