10 Sweet Potato Dishes We're Currently Craving

Food & Drink

I've been a fan of sweet potatoes since my grandma used to bless me every holiday by putting her foot in her famous sweet potato pies. Over the years, that love for the starchy vegetable has grown to encompass into an affinity for roasted sweet potatoes, as well as a favorable alternative to traditional fries. If you can relate to either or all of those craving inclinations, this September, we have quite a few treats for you to help you switch up your approach to sweet potatoes. Lawd knows I need them.

Why? Well, aside from being one of many fruits and vegetables currently in-season this month, sweet potatoes are rich in fiber, calcium, iron, potassium, manganese, as well as vitamins B and C. They are also high in beta-carotene, an antioxidant that becomes vitamin A once ingested. From aiding with digestion, to improving your immune system, eating sweet potatoes on the regular comes with its share of health benefits. Plus, nothing says fall quite like it.

Check out the 10 dishes below that are sure to elevate the way you implement sweet potatoes in your meals.

Something that I try to mention, as much as possible, especially when it comes to married and long-term couples is, if you want to go the distance, it's not just the "big things" that you've got to stay up on; it's the little things too. Something as simple as you being a morning person while your partner is a night owl can affect everything from quality of sleep to quality time to your sex life. That's why, when it comes to couples who have different sleep patterns who still want to have a fulfilling sexual dynamic, I'm all about encouraging them to do what is at the foundation for all successful relationships — compromise. Sometimes that means that an alarm clock needs to be set or someone needs to initiate some, umm, stuff (more on that in a bit) in order to get the juices flowing (pun intended and not intended).

It was actually pretty close to this time last year when I penned the piece "How To Get Through The Holidays If You Don't Observe Them". Unlike some of the other articles that I write for the site, I pulled that one from very personal experience. Being that my personality is very wired to "be good" on something once I know its origin, holidays are something that I tend to take a pass on; this includes Thanksgiving (some insightful reads on its origin are found here, here and here). Still, this doesn't mean I'm not aware of the fact that many people use this time of year to reflect on their blessings and to say "thanks" for all the good that has come their way. Since I like to write on relationships a lot, I thought to myself, "Why not come up with ways for people to show gratitude to their significant other?"
