Fall-lovers rejoice – sweet potatoes are finally back in season and on trend. These complex cabohydrate tubers pack a ton of vitamins and minerals, including beta-carotene, vitamin C, potassium.

YouTuber Yovana Mendoza, better known as Rawvana, shared an awesome way to use sweet potatoes as an amazingly filling base for healthy toppings.

The plant-based health coach was an international business major whose life took a dramatic turn after trying a raw food cleanse three years ago. “I felt amazing benefits, like more energy, more clear-mindedness and my skin cleared.”
