- Before and and after a workout we need great source of complex carbohydrate, which is also need to be low on the glycaemic index, meaning that it should provides us sustainable energy.
- Sweet potatoes are also rich in fibre, helping your body process the sugars, resulting in a steady supply of energy, for longer periods.
- “Eating a sweet potato post-workout is ideal as they contain copper, which can help maintain healthy muscle tissue and replenish energy levels. Sweet potatoes also contain vitamin C which helps to prevent muscle catabolism (the breakdown of muscle tissue).”
