    ElizabethKnicely's Note:

    (Use during C. T.) Sweet potatoes are a great source of beta-carotene, fiber, vitamin B6, vitamin A, manganese and potassium. They are packed with immune supportive vitamins and antioxidants that may also reduce the risk of certain cancers and age related vision problems. Sweet potatoes can be prepared in multiple ways. They can be baked, roasted, or boiled. They can make a mash, fries, soup, salad, chips and more. When picking sweet potatoes from the store, make sure they are firm and have a consistent color on the skin. They shouldn't have any cracks or bruises or be tinted green. Store potatoes in a cool, dry place. This recipe contains almost the full rainbow of vegetables, each providing different antioxidants and phytochemicals. The acidity of the lime, the spiciness of the chipotle, and the cooling avocado blend together perfectly for a delicious and nutritious meal.
