In Healing with Whole Foods, Paul Pitchford writes about how root vegetables, like sweet potatoes, “grow in cold climates and contain minerals and other elements that make it possible to survive in harsh weather and under snow. When eating, we take on their qualities and build resistance to cool weather and disease.” Sweet potatoes are loaded with vitamin A and help you build a strong immunity during the winter months. They are also high in Vitamin A for enhanced vision. For ease, choose one of the premade gluten free pie shells available at your local grocery store.
