Eating them at breakfast is an awesome way to start your day off with some fuel!
Depends on how many we're talking about. A bedridden patient can utilize of a certain amount of glucose without running out of places to stash it but 1 potato =/= 12 potatoes.

I think the easiest and tastiest way to prepare sweet potatoes is to roast them in the skins, then peel on cooling. It concentrates the flavor. You can slice them, mash with butter, so many different ways. They are also easy to fix as home fries or boiled in stew.
Not my favorite food - I know - burn her at the stake. But just in general, I don't like to eat the same food every day. There are just so many delicious foods out there. I'm not sure we're meant to eat any one every day. Bacon? Delicious - maybe 10x per year. Salmon - awesome and healthy - maybe 50 pounds/year. Eggs - awesome and healthy - about 3-4x per week (and I eat two per serving, not a half dozen). There's lamb, goat, avocado, duck, chicken, beef, sardines, oysters, squid, liver, tongue, too much to mention - I just don't understand why someone would eat any one of them every day.
But if you like it, and you don't get bored, and you don't binge, sweet potatoes are a nice starch.

To be honest, I would rather have white potatoes than sweet ones. The reason is that white potatoes have far more starches than simple sugars while sweet ones have about half - half. Cooled baked white potatoes are therefore richer in resistant starch, which is good for your colon and probably more
I eat a white potato everyday and only do cardio 3-4 times a week, still pretty lean.
I just love them boiled...they definitely are great in taste and rich in nutrients...
I don't have a problem with it. If your diet, exercise, sleep and lifestyle are in good nick having a sweet potato per day will do not harm, in fact it'll probs perk you up even more.
I eat almost one sweet potato a day. It makes no difference to my weight. I do lift though and I try to have one sprint session per week.
Right now I have one yam, one yellow sweet potato and one white potato on my desk. I didn't get around to eating them this week. I went for butternut squash and riced cauliflower/carrot for a few days instead.
