Tangy Treat for the detox-tastebuds- Tossed Sweet potatoes, Tofu and Veggies

Tossed Sweet potatoes and veggies in Balsamic Agave mixture is a treat to the taste buds when you are detoxifying your body. Currently I am on a detoxification process where I am treating myself with 3 servings of fruits and unlimited vegetables and loads of water. I am surprised the variety of vegetables we get and the way we can make variations. Trust me, I am not tired of eating veggies and loving this colorful plating adventure everyday.
