Gluten-Free Sweet Potatoes — Menu Plan Oct. 6

By · Print This Post Print This Post

SweetPotatoesThis month at the Gluten-Free Menu Swap, we’re discovering old and new ways to enjoy Fall Produce. This week, we’re exploring ways to add Sweet Potatoes to our meals.

What variety of Sweet Potato do you buy and eat?
I usually buy the standard Sweet Potatoes (rosy skin color, orange flesh), but I’ve been intrigued by the Golden Sweet Potatoes and Garnet Red Sweet Potatoes I’ve been finding at the stores and the farmers’ markets. I’ve been told that the darker skin colors are sweeter, and the lighter skin colors are more mild. I may have to do a taste test this week and see for myself.

Nutritionally, Sweet Potatoes are packed with good stuff. They are an excellent source of Vitamin A and Beta Carotene, as well as a good source of Vitamin C, Vitamins B, Manganese, Copper, Potassium, and fiber. So eat it up this fall!

For more ideas of eating sweet potatoes, check out the Menu Swap roundup this week at Mom’s Plans and my Pinterest Page of Sweet Potato Recipes.

Yay for sweet potatoes! I came to love them late in life (after going gluten free), but most definitely love them now. 🙂

FYI–I’ve heard that the Papa Murphy’s pizza follows the same protocol for gluten-free pizza that Domino’s does. Gluten-free crust, but everything else is shared, so not truly gluten free. So you might want to investigate the gf status further, Heather.
