November is Good Nutrition Month and what better way to talk about nutrition than the deliciousness of sweet potatoes!
What does “Good Nutrition” mean? In general, it means eating an adequate amount of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, proteins and fats each day (and spread throughout the day) to keep your body healthy.
Princella Sweet Potatoes knows all too well about how to get good nutrition in your body!
Only the finest sweet potatoes carry the Princella name. That’s because inside every purple can you’ll find Grade A Fancy sweet potatoes grown in rich Southern soil.
Whether you buy them mashed or cut, Princella Sweet Potatoes are a nutritious side dish or a versatile recipe ingredient.
Princella knows that Thanksgiving is a time when sweet potatoes are used the most, so they have provided a couple of delicious recipes for me to share with you!
