Health Benefits:

Sweet Potato

Sweet potato is not only richer in flavor than normal potato, but is also richer in nutrients. Sweet potatoes are very good source of vitamin A. They actually contain the largest amount of beta-carotine (source of vitamin A), which gives the potato orange color. Tip: Beta-carotine is fat-soluble vitamin, so you should take it with meals that contains healthy fats, like olive oil or avocado.

An average sweet potato has only about 100 Calories, so it is great food for weight loss. Also, it is antioxidant rich and very anti inflammatory. Plus, sweet potato helps maintain collagen which is good for our skin.

Avocado

Avocado is a great source of healthy fat, which is very necessary for your health. They are nutrient-dense food. They contain nearly 20 vitamins and minerals, are high in fiber (half an avocado provides 4.5 grams of fiber) and potassium. Avocados are known to lower bad cholesterol and raise good cholesterol. Eating avocados regularly will also protect you from eye diseases.

There is often misconception when it comes to avocados and weight loss. People think they should be avoided in weight loss meals but this is absolutely not true. It has been proven, that meals which contains avocado, will help you feel more satiated and this will eventually reduce your desire to eat more.
