Sweet potatoes are good for the soul! They have high levels of magnesium in them, which can help combat stress, anxiety, depression, and inflammation. Turmeric supports the fight against inflammation, and ginger supports gut health. This mineral-rich vegetable also makes for a satisfying lunch option, which will slow you down in more ways than one.
