Sweet potato sandwich recipe

Sweet potatoes are one of my favorite ingredients, roots, foods, you name it. There are so many benefits of eating sweet potatoes, I will have to keep my list a bit short but here are my top 3 reasons why I love eating sweet potatoes

Vitamin A – sweet potatoes are an excellent source of vitamin A and vitamin A is important because it helps with good vision, healthy bone growth, skin health and supports the immune system.
Help with Inflammation – with all the different nutrients sweet potatoes have, they all come to work together inside your body as antioxidants help reverse inflammation
Fiber – absolutely necessary for a good digestive system and guess what? it keeps you full longer!
How awesome are those benefits?! Well, besides my favorite way of eating sweet potatoes (homemade sweet potato chips), I also love making sweet potato sandwich. In less than an hour, you can have these delicious mini sandwich that you can stuff with whatever you prefer. I like mine with caramelized onions, sprouts, carrots and spinach – YUM!
