If you're in the U.S. it's probably sweet potato. In general, yams are drier.
I mean in terms of health benefits, which do most of you guys eat?
I get whichever one is cheaper per pound.
They seem the same to me. I have had both and like both.
The yams/sweet potatoes found in USA stores are mostly likely the same. True 'yams' are different, at least according to wikipedia. To me, the yellow and orange ones taste a bit different and I get one or the other depending on mood.
My favorite way to eat either (but especially the orange ones) is simply baked until soft and eaten plain or with butter.
Started PB late 2008, lost 50 lbs by late 2009. Have been plateaued, but that thing may just be biting the dust: more on that later.
I have recently added both in my dietary regime. I generally have a small serving with my last meal of the day (post-wrokout). I stir fry them in coconut oil or butter. Is it necessary to boil em??
Not necessary to boil them, in fact boiling would cause some of the nutrients to be tossed in the water. Roasted are great too, tossed with melted coconut oil, sea salt, pepper, red pepper if you like--some people like it with cinnamon
Started PB Aug 9, 2010 then let 'stuff' get in the way
Back to start and make a fantastic 2012
