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.

Peel and cut the sweet potato into half inch cubes. Put the cubes in a bowl. Add the turmeric, cinnamon and melted coconut oil. Mix well. Layer on a parchment lined baking pan and cook in the oven for 25 min at 400°F
In a large bowl, add all the other salad ingredients and the sweet potato cubes once cooked.
In a small bowl, mix all the dressing ingredients with a whisk.
Once all ingredients are mixed well and the dressing is fluffy, add on the salad.
