1 1/2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups coarsely grated peeled sweet potato, (about 1 large)
3 cups thinly shredded napa, or Savoy cabbage
4 scallions, trimmed and thinly sliced
1 teaspoon finely minced serrano, or jalapeno pepper with seeds (optional)

Olive oil is such a healthy fat. Did you know olive oil contains a potent mix of antioxidants that can lower a classic symptom of PCOS, namely heart-damaging LDL “bad” cholesterol? At the same time, olive oil leaves your HDL “good” cholesterol untouched. Keep in mind that “light” olive oils are usually more processed than extra-virgin or virgin olive oils and are lighter in color but not in fat or calories. Sesame seed oil is great for the skin both topically and internally. Sesame seeds contain anti-cancer compounds including phytic acid, magnesium, and phytosterols.

Cabbage is an excellent source of vitamin C and a very good source of manganese. But in terms of antioxidants in the newer, phytonutrient category, cabbage is impressive, even among cruciferous vegetables. Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of vitamin A, vitamin C, manganese, copper, pantothenic acid, and vitamin B6. Additionally, they are a good source of potassium, dietary fiber, niacin, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, and phosphorus.
