This great lunch is built on a base of brown rice, which provides a lot of fiber to help keep you full and keep the digestive system going. It is also a good source of selenium and manganese. On top of helping you relax and reduce stress thanks to their high magnesium content, the sweet potatoes will add vitamin B6 as well as vitamins C and A to the mix.
