#4: Sweet Potatoes
If there’s a single food that could sustain us through ‘supermom’ status, this would be it!  Eating these on a regular basis provides us a shield against stress, exhaustion, skin aging, and weight gain (to name a few of our most threatening enemies!).  Making it a habit to savor your sweet potatoes is like treating yourself to a spa day every day – plus if you share with your kids, you’re doing double duty by providing them all of the extra health benefits listed below.  Supermom to the rescue!
