Sweet potatoes can be your best friend when you get hungry very often. They help you stay full for longer making it easier to consume fewer calories. However, there is more to them than that.

“They are packed with nutrients which when cooked properly can provide multiple health benefits,” says Ramya Mahesh, dietitian at Sathwaa Nutrition, Bengaluru.

She adds that the best method to retain maximum nutrients is to boil them rather than frying or baking. “Keep the skin as it further helps in retaining the nutrients,” says Mahesh.
