Sweet Potato Chia Pudding (GF, Vegan) šŸ™ƒ

We love sweet potato almost as much as we love mushrooms.Ā šŸ’•šŸ āœØšŸ„ Cue thisĀ deliciousĀ 'Sweet Potato Chia Pudding' recipe from ourĀ west coast sis Danielle @cacaoforcoconuts_toĀ keep you fueled and chock full of fiber, vitamins, andĀ adaptogens!

Here's some neat stuff about sweet potatoes that make them a staple of our personal food pyramid.

Ā 

  • Highly nutritious and support your immune system, as they rich in magnesium, potassium, vitamin A, C, and E.Ā Ā 
  • Promote gut health and healthy digestion due to abundance of fiber and antioxidants.
  • May have cancer-fighting properties due to beta-carotene, carotenoid which is essential in protecting men from developing prostate cancer. In addition, extracts from different parts of sweet potatoes have been shown to helpĀ eradicateĀ breast, gastric, colorectal, and prostate cancers, limiting the growth and spread of these cancers.
  • Support healthyĀ vision. Ā Vitamin A, C, and E are integral in promoting good vision. Deficiency of vitamin A results in blindness or malformation of the retina and deficiency in vitamin C is associated with the development of cataracts.
  • Enhance brain function.Ā Purple sweet potatoes,Ā specificallyĀ  have been linked to better brain function. They'veĀ been shown toĀ protect the brain and improve learning and memory thanks toĀ high levels of anthocyanins andĀ antioxidants that help reduceĀ inflammation and protect neurons from free radicals.
