WAY too much starch from the sweet potatoes. I'd reverse the order and put in 2 lbs of carrots and if I just had to have it, 1 sweet potato. Personally I don't eat them because they have too many starchy carbs that kick my blood sugar. Sweet potatoes don't really have all the nutrition that cooked carrots do so I never use them. Their only bigger contribution than carrots is twice as much carbs and they're all starchy. Plus the calories are more than double those in carrots, gram for gram.
