ALBUQUERQUE, NM (KRQE)– Eating healthy doesn’t mean fancy meals or long preparations, all it takes is making the right choices.
An easy way to start eating healthy is incorporating sweet potato leaves into your diet.
Local Bariatric Surgeon, Duc Vuong, joined KRQE’s This Morning team to demonstrate a dish using the leaves. Watch above.
Sweet potato leaves are high in Vitamin K and A. The leaves also have three times more Vitamin B6, five times more Vitamin C, and close to 10 times more Riboflavin than sweet potatoes alone.
There are different ways to eat the leaves, raw or sautéed. Substituting them for spinach or event use them in soups or stews.
An easy way to always have access is to grow them in your garden, plus they come back each year.
