Health & Wellness & Sweet Potato Tacos

At this week’s Mo’Magic meeting, Garden and Seed-to-Mouth educator Yaya made sweet potato tacos for the annual Health and Wellness presentation. Not only were the tacos delicious, but they looked beautiful too!

What is Mo’MAGIC? 

Mo’ MAGIC is a collaborative San Francisco neighborhood-based nonprofit organization whose mission is to transform the community and youth through the MAGIC of collaboration.

About the Health and Wellness Presentation

The first presentation of the day focused on various personal and professional stresses, self-care routines, and actions to improve on healthy lifestyle choices. Aptly titled Holiday Blues Clues, their suggestions included (but was not limited to!): setting healthy work-life boundaries, asking for what you need, taking alone time, getting enough sleep, stretching, taking breaks, and giving compliments!

“Even hero’s need to eat!” – Yaya says about the “superhero” cohort of nonprofit providers. 

Cooking Demo by Yaya

To close the Health and Wellness presentation, Yaya made everyone a sweet potato taco! She started by asking everyone about their holiday comfort foods — think coco, chili, soup, breads – and offered this as her comfort food. A regular napper, Yaya  says this meal (delicious and light) gives her energy and keeps her going to the end of the day!
