This formulation works to increase circulation within those areas of our bodies that tend to get cold.  It is a comforting, cozy, non-greasy, and nourishing lotion, which penetrates quickly through the skin. Essential and Lipid oils warm the feet and hands, especially those cold toes and fingers. Massage this blend thoroughly into those areas and enjoy the warmth. If you then put on your socks or gloves, the results will be further enhanced.

Carol will be again be offering her "I'm Feeling In the Pink" personal, pocket inhaler sticks throughout October. This formulation inspires a fresh, uplifting feeling within our body, mind and spirit. A plethora of essential oils "marry" together that range from Silver Pine through Rose Geranimum......especially formulated for 'FROM PINE TO PINK', and proceeds will go to benefit this organizaton to help women with Cancer.  A healthy gift for yourself as well as family and friends.

Sweet Potatoes

I’m about to drop a major food bomb on you. Are you ready to have your mind blown??  Sweet potatoes are NOT potatoes! They are tubers but not potatoes. Potatoes are in the NightShade family remember, along with eggplant, tomato, etc. Sweet Potatoes are in the Morning Glory family and are just the edible tuber of the plant. Now potatoes are also edible tubers but of the potato plant. Sweet Potatoes are a completely different botanical beast. Unlike potatoes, sweet potatoes grow on rambling vines with gorgeous white or pale pink flowers that resemble the garden Morning Glory flowers and the leaves of the plant are also edible. Unfortunately eating the sweet potato leaves hasn’t quite caught on here in the US. They are popular in Viet Nam and elsewhere. It’s a shame because the leaves are super high in lutein, one of the best sources of lutein in fact, which is super important for our eye health.  But the tuber we eat is packed with good stuff too, the orange fleshed variety contains the highest amount of beta-carotene of any vegetable, the purple fleshed variety contains antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties to help block toxic effects from toxic heavy metals. Sweet potatoes also contain high amounts of vitamin A, C and are full of manganese, calcium, potassium, iron, B6 and fiber. It’s like a fiber boosted multi-vitamin. 

There are different varieties of sweet potatoes; the red skinned with orange flesh and white skinned purple fleshed as I mentioned. There’s also red skinned white fleshed and yellow skin white fleshed varieties too. And please DO NOT PEEL your sweet potatoes! Keep that nutrition and save yourself the time. 

Now seems like a good time to tackle the whole yam controversy. A yam is also a completely different botanical beast. Yams have hard brown tree bark like skin. They kind of look like a piece of tree root. At the grocery store and yes, even at the farmers market, you’ll see people labeling sweet potatoes as yams. It’s just a marketing ploy from the 50’s that stuck and some people just can’t let go of calling sweet potatoes yams. And sometimes farmers call sweet potatoes yams because they think you know them better as yams. Just like I still call a tissue a Kleenex. So just know that a real yam doesn’t look friendly or delicious and anything you see that looks like a sweet potato but is labeled a yam, is a sweet potato. Was that clear or clear as mud??

The bottom line - eat more sweet potatoes, they’re really, really good for you. This week I’m sharing the link to Epicurious’ 77 Sweet Potato Recipes for Any TIme of Day .  I think you should try the Sweet Potato Pie with praline topping, the Winter Stew, Sweet Potato Cobbler, Charred Chicken with Sweet Potatoes and Oranges, Spiced Sweet Potato Sandwich with Feta, Sweet Potato Sonker with Milk Dip (a classic North Carolina dessert), and Sweet Potato Bread with caramel and pecans. For the most health benefit however, steam your sweet potatoes with the skin on and finish them with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Enjoy!
