Sweet Benefits Of Sweet Potato For Dogs

Over the weekend, I was rewarded with a DELISH Tasty Sweet Potato Fries.
Sweet Potato has many health benefits.

– very high in a wide spectrum of nutrients,
rich in beta carotene, dietary fibre, vitamin B6, vitamin C and several minerals.

– source of potent antioxidant to help in healing,
cancer prevention, and fight the effects of aging

– high fiber content makes it great for the digestive system.

For DOGS: Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Keep in mind, if you are watching your dog’s weight, sweet potatoes contain high levels of carbohydrates and sugar. In my case, its alright as I need to gain some weight. For the coming months, Sweet Potato is going to be part of my regular diet. For sure mom will find different ways to make some DELISH Tasty Sweet Potato Treats.

    Never mind the canine, sweet potato fries are one of MY favorite treats! I might have to try this for the HUMANS only dusted with cinnamon instead of turmeric. Anyway Toby is back on his diet so he would only get one or two, depending on his begging skills…which usually are pretty spectacular. Lucky you Sugar to be able to consume nice healthy treats!

    Vlad & Barkly love sweet potatoes, but I’m not so inclined to give it to them very often just because it’s seems so hard to cut them up–harder than most anything else in the kitchen except for maybe turnips that they love too. Do you have any EASY way to cut up these really large, hard tubers?

    Katie loves sweet potatoes, I don’t like them much and usually turn my nose up at treats that taste like them or I carry it around forever and just guard it. I’m much more a fan of fruits than veggies.

    I love it when mom gives me sweet potato. She always bakes it in the oven. Would you believe it, she actually knows how to turn on the oven.

    Sugar, sweet potatoes are my favoritest vegetable!!! I just had some baked and mashed sweet potato mixed in with my food last night. Ma loves them too so she always shares with me. Enjoy those sweet potato fries!

    We are going to have to try to make some of those! Mom’s been meaning to make us some for awhile-what better time than the fall season to do it :) Thanks for the recipe Sugar!

    Yummy! 😀 We both love sweet potato’s in this house. By the way, great recipe! Do you think I could make it minus the oil or would it be too dry?

  13. says

    I LOVE sweet potato and sweet potato fries! Can you believe I’ve never actually cooked any sweet potato before? It’s on my to-do list, so maybe I’ll have to give this a try.

    Oh my, thanks for the reminder Sugar!! I keep forgetting about sweet potatoes! I’m going to have to find a tasty treat for next Tuesday’s hop that uses SP. I think my pups will love it too!
