Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Yams (sweet potatoes) are one of nature's most nearly complete foods... high in vitamin A, a good source of potassium and a fair source of vitamin C, iron, and vitamin B6. One medium-sized baked yam as 160 calories. Remember to keep yams dray and at room temperature.
