Wellness Wisdom Pearl for Stress Relief: Sweet Potato

November 16, 2016

 It's that time of year, the holiday season has officially begun. I even heard a Christmas song on the radio today! Though we are looking forward to getting together with family and friends sharing a scrumptious meal, traveling, longer to-do-lists and strained relationships can drastically increase stress levels.

Sweet potatoes contain nutrients that can help relieve stress as well as other health benefits.

The key is how they are prepared. Yes, candied yams are delicious, but the added brown sugar and white sugar and wreak havoc on your immune system, blood sugars and health goals.

Watch the following video for more information.

As an added bonus, here is the recipe for Sweet Potato Hummus.
