With Thanksgiving around the corner, we can’t help but start to think about all of the amazing foods we’re going to be eating in just a few short days. Between the stuffing, the cranberry sauce, and of course, the turkey, our mouths are already beginning to water.
One of our other favorite Thanksgiving dishes is sweet potato casserole, but one thing you may not have known about this dish (and one of the reasons we love it!) is that its star ingredient, the sweet potato, is actually good for your skin!
In one sweet potato, you will find more than 200% of the recommended daily value of vitamin A, which is extremely important for having amazing skin.Vitamin A promotes the growth of new skin cells and increases the rate at which that happens, leaving you with a beautiful and glowing complexion.
As if that weren’t enough, you’ll also get three grams of fiber from a sweet potato, which helps your digestive tract healthy and functioning properly. Not only is this essential during the season of eating, having a healthy digestive tract can also help keep your skin blemish free.
To get you started thinking about all of the great sweet potato dishes you can include in your Thanksgiving dinner this year, here’s a great recipe for our favorite dish, sweet potato casserole. We wish everyone a very happy and safe Thanksgiving, and this year, we are very thankful that our delicious food can also help give us beautiful and glowing skin!
