  • Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of beta carotene, a powerful antioxidant that protects healthy cells from damage from the environment and aging.
  • Just half a medium sweet potato provides all of the vitamin A you need in a day. Vitamin A is needed for a strong immune system.
  • A large egg has 6 grams of muscle-building protein. Protein also helps prevent muscle loss and boosts healing and is needed for a strong immune system.
  • Eggs contain a special nutrient called choline that is needed for the brain to be able to send messages to your muscles.
  • Avocado and olive oil are monounsaturated fats and promote a healthy heart and lower inflammation. You need healthy fats in your diet to absorb nutrients such as vitamins A, D, E and K. Having healthy fats in this recipe helps you get more beta carotene out of the sweet potato!
