Baked Sweet Potatoes with Citrus
Detox Cred: Eating this winter superfood is one of the best ways to get more beta-carotene, an antioxidant the body converts to immunity-boosting vitamin A. The hearty but low-calorie root veggie is also great for weight loss. Bake several of these ahead and store in your fridge for up to 3 days.
