Notes

Sweet potato very high in vitamin A in the form of Beta-carotene (an incredible 26,000 IU/0.3 =7,800 mcg to put it into perspective) and B vitamins, Vitamin C, Potassium and Iro.n

Eggs – about 50% of the egg make-up is protein, eggs are also high in vitamins A,D,E,K and B vitamins.

Plenty of warming with spices such as nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves and ginger as well as being packed with essential vitamins – perfect for a winter’s evening.

Maple syrup has health benefits, it is a great alternative to sugar, low on the glycemic index (GI), has 24 different antioxidants

Maple syrup contains zinc and manganese in fairly high amounts. Zinc can help fight illness and improve immunity, keeping your level of white blood cells up, while manganese plays a crucial role in fat and carbohydrate metabolism, calcium absorption, blood sugar regulation, brain and nerve function.
