    We are all different and the only reliable way to see if a food suits is to use your blood meter/

    Sweet potatoes are just that too sweet for me but celeriac is a good one. Love roasted with Sunday lunch, mashed on a cottage pie or any other recipe as a substitute for potatoe.

    Sounds really nice that. I actually found a shop near me that sells celeriac... at last! :D Gonna try it out later this week.

    Sweet potatoes are a better source of fiber and vitamins, and have a lower glycemic index, so they're a more nutritious choice overall compared to potatoes. I also bought a few today. Love to eat them baked/ grilled- they taste great!
