Excerpt from book “Enjoy Food & Life: Step-by-step action plan for healthy eating & living. “
When my Dad was preparing his garden in Cocoa Beach, Florida last we he “stumbled upon” sweet potatoes (on the left in this graphic) that were still growing from last year’s crop.
Reminded me of how great sweet potatoes are for sugar cravings. Over the years, I’ve encouraged my sugar addicted clients to enjoy a sweet vegetable, like sweet potatoes every day.

Action: Bake an Organic Sweet Potato and come on over to Facebook and share your experience.
Scrub a few organic sweet potatoes then puncture with a knife a few times for venting. Wrap the sweet potato in foil and cook at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes. Take note of the sweetness of a plain sweet potato.
