Thai Sweet Potato Salad with Peanut Butter Dressing

I promised myself at the beginning of this year that I would be getting after it in the healthy food portion of my life, as I do every year. However, this year is different as I’ve managed to incorporate leafy greens into my diet daily.

Although I doubt I could ever do the switch, I’m really seeing the benefits of people who go vegan. In fact, I have a 40-year-old friend who went vegan 9 months just got his blood work back and it reads as if he were a strong healthy 16-year-old boy. I mean come on now that’s ridiculous!! Maybe I’m just jealous?

Healthy clean eating has really come full court circle the last few years and not just because it’s the best way to eat, but now people are mixing and matching flavors to make sure it’s delicious. Healthy eating back in the day was a grapefruit for breakfast… YUCK!!

This Thai Sweet Potato Salad with Peanut Butter Dressing is packed with complex carbohydrates, leafy greens and the tastiest dressing ever! If you are looking to make a healthy easy to make salad, then this is your winner! Happy Cooking!
