Sweet potato-Spinach salad

Sweet potato everything! I am a big fan of them at any time of the day. Although it exists a big variety of sweet potatoes, the orange one contains the most beta-carotene, which your body can turn into vitamin A. Vitamin A helps different organs of your body function properly (heart, lung, kidney, etc.). The beta-carotene found in orange plants will be converted into vitamin A by your body, only if there is a need for it. If your body already has enough Vitamin A, the beta-carotene will not be converted, which will avoid your body to have too much of it.

This salad also contains cashews and almond butter (protein & healthy fat) which will help you feel full longer.
