A yam is a sweet potato. You may also want to try fresh zucchini, fresh spinach, or fresh peas. Do not use canned veggies as many contain preservatives and salt (lots and lots of salt).

technically a yam is not 100% a sweet potato, there are differences (although they taste the same, bad) i think there both similar but different
