Super food of the day

Burger King is the latest eatery to offer sweet potatoes and for good reason.  Helping to build your immunity is just one of the many huge benefits you get from eating this food.  Sweet potatoes contain glutathione which is a super nutrient all by itself.  Check this out! Glutathione is an antioxidant so it helps ward of cancer and stroke, but it also fights Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and liver disease. Pregnant women who eat sweet potatoes will also help fight off cystic fibrosis and there is some research out there that it helps fight HIV.

Obviously the sweet potato fries you would get at Burger King have some downside.  However it is always good to see places try to incorporate healthier choices for people.  Sweet potatoes are super easy to prepare and I recommend baking them or mashing them yourself.
