Nutrition Tip

Sweet potatoes are one of my favorite starches because of their delicious flavor and outstanding nutritional value. Yams are one of natures unsurpassed sources of beta-carotene. You can dramatically increase the amount of beta-carotene absorbed when eating sweet potatoes by combining then with some healthy fat. Three to five grams of fat has been shown to significantly increase the absorption of beta-carotene.

I hope you enjoy these amazing nutrient dense meat muffins!
