Nutritional values

Sweet potatoes owe their strong orange color to the plant pigment beta-carotene, a precursor of vitamin A. This fat-soluble vitamin is important for healthy eyes. Cashews can improve mood because they contain plenty of tryptophane, which is needed for serotonin production.

This salad is great to go. With this healthy salad, you won't crash in the afternoon!
