I’m not afraid of carbohydrates, but I choose the ones that are beneficial for my health, as is the case with sweet potatoes or yams. They are similar to potatoes, but they have a sweeter taste, they contain more fiber, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin B6, manganese and calcium, in addition, they have a lower glycemic load, so for many it is a healthier alternative. I personally consume both.

This salad, being so colorful, has many different nutrients and is a very complete dish, ideal to carry in a lunch box when we have to eat out.
