1. Sweet potatoes

Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of beta carotene, which converts to vitamin A in the human body. Vitamin A is an important antioxidant that helps maintain reproductive function, vision and immune function.

Packed with low glycaemic carbohydrates and high in fibre, sweet potatoes are nutrient-dense as well being extremely satisfying.
Diet tip: Cook, mash and use instead of rice or noodles as a base for any dish.
