Why this salad is not only super tasty but also super healthy?
Sweet potatoes are rich in beta-carotene, a carotenoid. Consuming lots of foods high in carotenoids decreases your risk of breast cancer. Sweet potatoes are also high in fibre; high total fiber consumption is associated with a reduced risk of breast cancer.
Olive oil is high in monounsaturated fatty acids and polyphenols. Some studies see a link between olive oil consumption and a reduced breast cancer risk.
Quinoa contains all the essential amino acids. Essential means that our body cannot produce these amino acids itself and is dependent on their intake through food. To support short delivery routes, buy quinoa grown in the UK.
