Sweet potatoes as a snack? You bet!

The veggies that make up the base of this week’s #CURESummerSnacktime recipe can be served as a savory snack or a satisfying side dish to any meal.

Just like many of our previous snacks, this quick dish can help satisfy your sweet tooth, but the fact that it can also be served hot or cold makes it an easy-to-prepare, versatile addition to your recipe box. In addition to the high dietary fiber content of the sweet potatoes, turmeric is an antioxidant with anti-inflammatory properties that can be beneficial to those dealing with cancer and its treatments.
