New season organic sweet potatoes are back! These delicious root veggies are full of vitamins including vitamin C and A (which help support the immune system and fight against aging) and vitamin B (which assists with promoting heart health!)
In this scrumpticous recipe, we topped the baked organic sweet potato with creme fraiche from our local dairy, which is a good source of calcium and probitoics!
