sweet potatoes

they are healthy from the point of having a low glycaemic index but not enough fibre in them to make them a healthy b option. In the same way avocados are healthy they are high in fat so have to be eaten in moderation (i.e a small one is 7 syns each )

Also, normal potatoes have to be eaten on a red day with their skins on to count as a healthy B (increases the fibre) - you don't eat sweet potatoes unpeeled (or at least I don't)...

No, you can't mash potatoes with the skins on.
You'll have to syn them or have an EE or a green day, where you can eat loads!

Before the fab EE plan, on a red day I used to mash pots with their skins & it worked fine. I didn't know there was a rule saying you couldn't do this?

Sorry, it doesn't say you can't. I just thought it as I don't think it is very appealing but if it works for you, that is just fine as long as you eat the skins!

TBH they mash down quite well, also if used in something like cottage/fish pie, by the time it bakes in the oven you'd never actually know there was skins in it..it seems to completely break down.
