Gf Sweet Potato Waffles

An all time favorite food of mine are sweet potatoes. Not just because they are insanely delicious, but also because of all of the incredible health benefits they have to offer. 

Sweet potatoes are a great source of Vitamin C which helps accelerate wound healing, and produces collagen which helps maintain skin’s youthful elasticity, and is essential to helping us cope with stress. Yes, you'd have to be crazy to pass all that up! 

Been spending a lot of my time digging for cool new recipe's to share with you all and this one is now at the top of my list of favorites!
