  • Numbers Game: Answer

    sweetpotatoesSweet potato skins contain roughly three times the antioxidants contained in the vegetable’s flesh.

    This probably helps you understand why I always advocate eating the skin of fruits and vegetables (as long as they are edible, of course).

    Not only are skins a good source of fiber and certain nutrients — they also provide their own share of antioxidants and phytonutrients.

    For example, one hundred percent of an apple’s quercetin (an antioxidant that  has been linked to lower inflammation levels as well as decreased risk of prostate and lung cancers) content is in its skin!

    Whether you make sweet potato mash, baked sweet potatoes, or oven-roasted sweet potatoes, leave the peeler in your kitchen drawer!

      When I bake a sweet potato, I don’t eat the skin, but when I roast them, I absolutely leave it on. Same with rutabagas, beets, celeriac, etc. Mostly out of laziness, but I’ll also accept the extra nutrients.

      Hey Andy, long time no comment. College and whatnot. At any rate, quick question about the above edible peel comment. I generally don’t eat the peel of things like kiwis and oranges, but I have heard that they are edible and contain significant nutrition. Any truth to this before I bite into a whole kiwi?
