Dr. Don Colbert – Loaded with nutrients and fiber, sweet potatoes are one of the most delicious detox foods.
This is because a successful detox involves not only eliminating toxic substances but also rebuilding the body with nourishing foods.
Proper detox requires adequate amounts of fiber. Fiber promotes digestive health. It binds to toxins as they are released in the digestive tract and escorts them out of the body.
In addition to their fiber content, sweet potatoes are incredibly nutrient dense. They are notably loaded with vitamin A which is responsible for their characteristic orange color.
These root vegetables also have valuable minerals such as magnesium and potassium.
This delicious and nourishing sweet potato recipe is sure to become a detox favorite of the whole family!
