Fall Sweet Potato Breakfast Ideas

Fall Sweet Potato Breakfast Ideas

Now that it is colder all I want is warm and comforting foods. Recently I have been adding sweet potatoes to just about every breakfast. It is so nice, warming (especially with cinnamon and ginger spices), delicious and filling!

Sweet potatoes are high in fiber (make sure you eat the skin), vitamin A, vitamin C, manganese, potassium and several other vitamins and minerals.

Remember when you were a kid and you heard carrots can help you eye sight? So can sweet potatoes thanks to Vitamin A. Vitamin A is also an immune boosting vitamin which is perfect for weather change and flu season.

Enjoy these three Fall Breakfast ideas packed with Sweet Potatoes!
