ROASTED SWEET POTATOES AND APPLES

Sweet potatoes are traditionally good for healthy digestion, as their color and essence (as root vegetables) benefit the Stomach and Spleen, the organs associated with Earth. In this recipe, they are paired with apples and honey, which both support the Lung function. This is a great recipe to enjoy after the fall harvest, the season of the Lung!
