Sweet potato is a root vegetable rich in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and fiber. It is naturally sweet in taste and alkalizing in nature. As per Ayurveda, it is Tridosha hara, which means it balances all three doshas (bioenergies) inside the body.

Wheat contains gluten, which might be a problem for someone who suffers from gluten sensitivity, celiac disease, or IBS. They should make a wrap from Amaranth or sorghum flour.
