Purple Haze Sweet Potatos – Side Dish

Side dishes are always the thing, in my opinion that can take a meal from good to great. Side dishes can also take the dish from healthy to un-healthy in the blink of an eye.

The trick is to make that healthy side dish taste as good or better than the un-healthy one. That is what we try to do. Take healthy dishes and make them taste amazing. We love sweet potatoes. I get them from a farmer in McMinnville Tennessee about 45 min from where I live in Cookeville.

Sweet potatoes are a better alternative to white potatoes because of the lower glycemic content and effect they have on the body.
