Vegan Sweet Potato Salad

Oh sweet, sweet potatoes. They are a great source of carbs. After exercise, it is important to fuel up with carbohydrates to refill the glycogen layers in the muscles and optimise recovery. Rice and glucose powders can be useful, but nothing compares to the power of the sweet potato, since it is full of other nutrients such as fibers, minerals and vitamins.
