    Can you eat flour tortillas on a diet?

    yes you can. you mix it up with simple and complex carbs. It's about intake and not what it is you eat.

    Is sweet potato good for everyone?

    I mix it up with real potatoes. Best is when theyre frozen in a bag. It makes for dieting much easier instead of having to peel, bake/boil/airfry etc.

    How can I make sweet potatoes taste better?
