Autoimmune paleo friendly carb alternatives to sweet potatoes!
In this video I go over all the ways you can incorporate Taro Root, Yautia blanca, boniatos and green plantains into your diet for more variety!!
These can all be found in latin markets! They often go by many different names:
“TARO ROOT” (Colocasia esculenta) will often be labeled “Coco-yam” or “Malanga-coco”. The smaller ones are called “Eddo”. This is what they make Poi out of in Hawaii. I have found this at the Vietnamese grocers, latin markets, and even in Stop and Shop next to the coconuts and star fruit.
“YAUTIA BLANCA” (Xanthosoma sagittifolium)- these are often called different names as well. “Malanga blanca”, “Tannia” and even “taro root” are sometimes used!
“BONIATOS”- (Ipomoea batatas) These are becoming easy to find- Wholefoods, Trader Joe’s, Latin Markets, Stop & Shop… AKA Japanese sweet potato, White sweet potato, “Batata”, Murasaki Sweet Potatoes.
GREEN PLANTAINS- Look for them in your grocery store next to the coconuts and tropical fruit or try a latin market. The green ones are best for savory dishes.
