Sweet Potatoes!

Sweet Potato, Red Purple, Pile Up, Fruit

That is right! I don’t like sweet potatoes, never have and probably never will. Why? because they are gross. I don’t see how people can enjoy them so much, even most of my family love it, except for my two siblings. Another thing is, I see everyone all over social media who is into “eating healthy” and fitness sharing pictures of sweet potato dishes – I am over here like.. seriously.. -_- 

Part of me is jealous, because I wish I could stand to eat them, but then part of me is like.. hahahahahahhahaahhaha have your sweet potatoes; I will continue to eat my russet (even if isn’t the “best” choice). Anyways after seeing so many pictures, dishes, recipes dealing with sweet potatoes, I decided I would make a blog post about it (in a good way) and share with you the benefits of adding sweet potatoes in your diet and then maybe you can decide why it is such a popular choice for health experts. 

 

Why, Oh why, The Sweet Potato?

 
  1. They are inexpensive
  2. available all year long in most places
  3. High in vitamin B6
  4. Vitamin C
  5. Vitamin D
  6. Have Iron and promote a healthy immune system
  7. Good source of magnesium
  8. Potassium
  9. Do not cause blood sugar spikes
  10. Anti-inflammatory nutrients
  11. Antioxidant nutrients
  12. promote healthy skin and hair
  13. good for stress because of the magnesium
  14. good source of dietary fiber
  15. Have said in studies to help prevent cancer – and protect against the effects of aging

Also, Yams and sweet potatoes are two different things that look a lot alike and many people do not know this, YAMS are rarely sold in most stores in the U.S and as said before sweet potatoes are widely available. 

So for these reasons, I wish I could eat sweet potatoes and enjoy it, hell I wish I liked YAMS too, but I don’t. Do any of you not like sweet potatoes? do any of you love them? share your thoughts on sweet potatoes in the common section and don’t forget to share this post on social media so people you know can be informed about this lovely food!

“Go to” Lunch ideas

lunch

Hey fellow bloggers and readers, 

I have a short blog today, mostly because I need some ideas & I want some recipes again. Normally these post get many people on board, so hopefully this one goes well too.

I need some “lunch” ideas, more or less what do all of you eat for lunch? Do any of you not eat lunch at all? do you think of lunch as snacking or do you actually eat a meal? I was at the store a couple of days ago with some friends and we were doing some shopping together, and we both came to a realization that we don’t know how to shop for lunch food. Yes?! I know weird, right? well we know we can eat sandwiches, and we can eat soups, but we wanted something different, and while yes I do use Pinterest quite often, we failed to even look this time around. I told him I would ask all of you for lunch ideas and the next time we both go grocery shopping we would use your recipes, and ideas so we could avoid this problem from happening again. 

One would think lunch is the easier meal to figure out, but for myself and my friend, we find it the more difficult meal to decide on. Help us out and share your lunch ideas!
