I've read that sweet potatoes are even better for diabetics than white
potatoes.  Something about the sugars breaking down less easily and thus
keeps the blood sugar levels at a more sustained amount as opposed to the
"spike and drop" you get with the levels thanks to white potatoes.  My
husband and I both like them.  We top them with cinnamon and they are VERY
tasty! We like to have them with a nice steak or grilled chicken
breast...mmm!  Making me hungry!  I guess it's a good thing we're meeting
friends of ours (who are from out of town) tonight for supper at the Texas
Roadhouse Steakhouse.  I think I know what I'm having...
