" Breakfast my people will understand" check out why his breakfast caused a stir

A dicotyledonous plant, the sweet potato or sweetpotato is a member of the Convolvulaceae family, which also includes bindweed and morning glory. As a root vegetable, its big, starchy, sweet-tasting tuberous roots are consumed. Sometimes the young branches and leaves are consumed as greens.

Oxalates, which are found in abundance in sweet potatoes, may raise the risk of kidney stones made of calcium and oxalate. Beta-carotene is present in sweet potatoes, and overindulging in them can cause hypervitaminosis A, a condition in which too much vitamin A builds up in the liver.

But there are some additional advantages to eating sweet potatoes. They include lots of fiber and antioxidants, which guard your body from the harm caused by free radicals and support a healthy gut and brain. Additionally, beta-carotene, which is turned into vitamin A to support healthy vision and your immune system, is extraordinarily abundant in them.

In most African households, sweet potato is eaten with tea, and it is rumored to be delicious, so when this guy posted a picture of him about to enjoy some sweet potato with tea many people were not surprised at all.
