Did you know that March is Brain Awareness Month? This is a recipe that not only tastes great, but it could help boost your brain health! That’s because it’s made with sweet potatoes and those little nuggets have antioxidants, carotenoids, and Vitamin A which all work together to contribute to your brain’s health. It’s also a great reminder that sweet potatoes should make it to the table more than once a year and smothered in marshmallows. Sweet potatoes can be used almost every application a baking potato is usually used in – fries, stews, and more.
Vitamin A helps regulate the immune system and protects you from infections by keeping skin and tissues in your mouth, stomach, intestines and respiratory healthy. Get this immune-boosting vitamin from sweet potatoes, carrots, kale, spinach, red bell peppers, apricots, milk, eggs or foods labeled vitamin-A fortified, such as milk or cereal. – Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, Read More: Avoiding the Flu Naturally – Natural Ways to Boost Your Immune System
