Sweet Potatoes are a budget friendly way to get your daily dose of goodness!  They come packed with an abundance of potassium, beta-carotene, vitamin E and C.

Potassium helps regulate blood pressure by ridding the body of excess sodium and regulating the heartbeat.  It is also an electrolyte, which maintains fluid balance in the body.

Beta-Carotene is a powerful antioxidant that protects and repairs cells.  It is great for vision health and may prevent macular degeneration.

The vitamin E and C are responsible for the sweet potato’s title of “beauty food” making for glowing skin and vibrant hair.

We’ve been really enjoying this version of sweet potato hummus!  Hummus is a great addition to a meal secondary to its high protein and fiber content.  It’s a nice alternative to plain hummus!
