Cinnamon Mashed Sweet Potato with Cobbler Fillet and Spinach


Hey Guys,

As promised, I’ll  be posting some of my meals that have been contributing to my ‘healthy lifestyle’ and skincare.

Cinnamon is a small spice that boasts enormous health benefits. You don’t have to like cinnamon to reap its health benefits, adding a little bit of it to your favorite meal will be enough.

I was really happy to learn that sweet potatoes are good for skin. They are high in vitamins A and C, which are both essential for glowing and healthy skin. The thing is, vitamin C increases collagen production that keeps your skin supple and smooth, and vitamin A is a potent antioxidant that fights free radical damage and prevents skin cancer. I think it’s a great reason to add sweet potatoes to your eating plan.

Spinach is a nutrient-rich food you should definitely include into your eating plan. It’s an excellent source of Vitamin E, iron, chlorophyll, folate, magnesium, fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C and plant protein, which are all great for your skin. Spinach is also packed with antioxidants that help prevent different types of skin problems. You can use spinach in your green smoothies or add it to your salads. Eating spinach regularly will help clean your skin from the inside out.

I made this for lunch the other day!
