This is a recipe I got a couple of weeks ago at the farmer’s market. I tried it and liked it a lot. My hope is that you will try it a like it as much as I did:
2 medium to large sweet potatoes
1 full TSP. of Ghee, butter, or other cooking oil
1/8 to 1/4 TSP. Thyme
pinch of ground cayenne pepper
pinch of cinnamon
1/8 TSP. Paprika
- Dice the potatoes into 1/2 inch to 1/4 inch cubes (the smaller the better)
- Heat the oil in the pan on medium
- Add all of the spices
- Next add the potatoes and coat well
- Continue to cook, stirring frequently until the potatoes are done.
Serve and enjoy!
Somehow or another we have all been affected by addiction whether its with a family member, ourselves, a friend, or a coworker. We have all seen it and maybe even experienced it for ourselves. There are many different types of addiction; tobacco, alcohol, prescription and nonprescription drugs, food, sex, internet, video games, and the list goes on.
There is one addiction many of us may have but we never really acknowledge it; this addiction is to sugar.
Sugar is in many of the things mentioned above. That is why its so hard to beat this addiction; sugar is in almost every packaged, bottled, and canned food item in the grocery store.
We can work on reducing our sugar cravings through eating sweet vegetables and wholesome fruits. One of my favorites is sweet potatoes. Most of the root vegetables are considered sweet vegetables. Types of sweet vegetables include carrots, beets, squash, and onions.
Try this recipie for Sweet Potato Home Fries.
Incorporate more and more sweet vegetables, into your daily eating and you will see the sugar cravings reduce and possibly disappear.
