Did you hear? Sugar Lobbyists in the 60s hired Harvard Scientists to downplay the role of sugar in heart disease. The NYT says these biased reports continue to shape dietary recommendations today.
It can't be dessert! It has vegetables in it.

Do you want to live in a Complaint-Free World?
I have just joined the 21-Day Complaint Free challenge created by Will Bowen. Every time I complain, gossip or criticize, I have to move a purple bracelet (pictured below) to the other wrist and start back at Day 1. I am told it could take 4 to 6 months to reach 21 days of not complaining. Here's the link: http://www.willbowen.com/
I have been eating sweet potatoes in the morning with egg-kale fritatta. Delish and comforting.
Sweet Potato Inhibits Colon & Lung Cancer: A protein isolated from sweet potatoes was shown in this study to slow the growth of colon cancer cells by 65% in vit...ro, and when given to mice it slowed their colon cancer growth by 58%. Remarkably, the extract also inhibited lung tumors by 50% in the same mice. Other lab research has shown that sweet potato also potently inhibits leukemia, lymphoma and liver cancer cells. And in studies on humans, eating this super vegetable (alone or with other foods) has been associated with reducing the risk of kidney cancer by 56%, and gallbladder cancer by 67%, and breast cancer by 30% (when eaten three times weekly). Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of antioxidants like beta-carotene, vitamin C and manganese. Not only do they have a low glycemic index, but they’ve even been shown in a clinical trial to help reduce blood sugar levels and improve insulin sensitivity in adults with type II diabetes! It may even help with weight loss: a new study has just shown that sweet potato actually reduces appetite and food intake (in mice)! So this holiday season try some new sweet potato recipes! They’re great in pie, oven-roasted with herbs and olive oil, boiled and mashed, baked, as stew or as fries. And alkalizing diet fans take note: sweet potatoes have 160% the alkalizing power of pure lemon juice!
