|I tend to go a bit less on any complex carb/starch. It is just a personal preference thing for me, and I really have no idea how the nutrient profile for sweet potatoes stacks up against more "traditional" grains...I imagine that sweet potatoes have much more vitamin A,C and potassium than grains, and less of the B complex vitamins. I often play around a bit with the "grainy" ingredients, and will add some ground flax seed, crushed walnuts, almonds, etc. And when I make fruit/veggie juice in my juicer, I will use the leftover pulp in any recipe I am doing up. I am sure to remove the pulp BEFORE I add any grapes, or oranges--seeds and pith make the pulp unappealing to my dogs, and I can't imagine it would be very good for them.
All of my dogs go nuts for sweet potatoes much more than, say, oats. To them, the s. potatoes are like a special treat...
