Question and comment

As i perused(sp?) the grocery store after my workout this morning, I walked over to the produce section. I headed to where all of the potatoes are and I found myself wondering two things:

1) What is the difference (healthwise) between a sweet potato and a yam? And honestly, which is which???? The orange is sweet potato and the yellow is a yam or is it the other way around?!

2) Why is a sweet potato superior and more accepted as part of a diet than regular potato? It is something I should know, but I don’t. I know that regular potato’s are a starch and yada yada, but what makes sweet potato’s so different as far as health??

I would love to know the answers so speak up!!!

    Sweet potatoes/yams are “better” for you because they do not effect your blood sugars like plain potatoes.

    Both are low in fat, both are filling. 🙂

    And I am not sure of the difference between sweet “taters” and yams ~ here in the south we don’t call them yams!
