One of my favourite foods at the moment is the kumara or the sweet potato. Not to be too closely associated with the white potato, the kumara is a starch root vegetable native to South America. The kumara also comes in white, orange and purple varieties, and derives its flavour from the enzyme that converts starches into sugar. These wonderful hearty vegetables are high in potassium, iron, fibre, beta-carotene and vitamin A, B6, C, E & folate.
So if you are someone who drops fruit from your diet when dieting then always add in kumara – you will lower your GI whilst sustaining your vitamins and minerals that you lose from this practice.
TIP: bake the kumara with the skin on (and eat it) because this is where the majority of the fibre is and it is delicious!
