Why it’s so good?

Sweet potatoes have a low G.I, which means they release their energy slowly. This helps keep blood sugar levels stable and prevents energy dips. The butterbeans boost your carbohydrate intake and supply plenty of B vitamins needed to release energy from your food. A lack of energy can sometimes be due to a poor iron intake, and beef is one of the richest and most easily absorbed sources.

Enjoy xx
