Sweet Potato

The sweet potato. I love and adore them. I love them baked. I love them in casseroles. I love them in pies. I don't understand how people can't love the sweet potato. Is it a southern thing? I know I grew up eating sweet potatos. Of course, I've always been adventurous with eating. I'll try anything once. But if I don't like something, you can't force me to eat it.

But back to the sweet's been told it's actually good for you. As for me I'm not sure it is. For, when I eat a baked sweet potato, I slather it with butter and cinnamon. Mmmmmmmm.....just writing that makes me want to eat one. I can eat one plain..but I'd much rather have the butter and cinnamon.

With that we get to cinnamon. It too is supposed to be a healthier spice. It's also supposed to make you not as hungry. But again, I find that it doesn't do that for me. I could eat cinnamon all day long and be as hungry....if not more so. I love cinnamon. Cinnamon toast, cinnamon toast crunch, scotch cake (which has cinnoman in it) cinnamon buns, brown sugar and cinnamon oatmeal....yummmmmmmmmmm.

I'm fighting with nutrition, as always, and just trying to figure out the foods that I can eat. The hunt continues.....

Oh, and sweet potatos give me some of the WORSE gas ever. That is all. :)

  1. Sweet potatoes are awesome, and butter on them helps you to absorb fat-soluble vitamins. But I'm staying away from you after you eat 'em!
