SWEET POTATO AND KALE SALAD
WITH HARISSA DRESSING

Benefits: Sweet potatoes are rich in beta-carotene, beneficial for health of the skin and eyes, they are high in fibre, which helps support digestive system and may help to improve blood sugar regulation for those with Type 2 diabetes. Kale is a excellent source of fibre, iron and calcium, and contains four times the vitamin c content and twice the selenium content of spinach, as well as nutrients like vitamin E and beta-carotene. These are all important for supporting a healthy immune system.
