Sweet potato wedges 

Simplicity is sometimes best. So what better to have on a cold winters evening than this perfect snack – sweet and savoury 😍 sweet potato wedges with a dollop of tahini sauce and coriander! Super simple to prepare and tasty! 

Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene) and Vit D. Vitamin D is critical for immune system and overall health. Both a vitamin and a hormone, vitamin D is primarily made in our bodies as a result of getting adequate sunlight. You may have heard about seasonal affective disorder (or SAD, as it is also called), which is linked to inadequate sunlight and therefore a vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin D plays an important role in our energy levels, moods, and helps to build healthy bones, heart, nerves, skin, and teeth, and it supports the thyroid gland. They are also a very good source of vitamin C, manganese, copper, pantothenic acid and vitamin B6. 👌🏼👌🏼
