HCB's Journal, 18 January 2013

Although I try to eat fewer carbs and more protein, I eat a sweet potato or yam nearly every day. They are low on the glycemic index and do not trigger my cravings for more catbs. They are full of nutrients and fiber...and taste yummy!

Still grateful for:

- The people I love who love me back!
- The good health of my loved ones
- My FS Buddies who support and encourage me to continue
- "Butt-kicking" myself to a smaller size today

So nice to hear from you today. I love sweet potatoes too. And since I've eliminated sugar from my diet they taste like candy to me - funny how that works!

I love sweet potatoes! I like to sprinkle chili powder on my oven baked sweet potato fries. Yum.

I agree, sweet potatoes are so yummy!! I like to sprinkle cinnamon on my oven SP fries, I can't handle spicy things like chili powder.. :) And to think I used to REFUSE to eat sweet potatoes!!

I love sweet potatoes, too. Usually as a side, cooked in microwave. Tonight I'm making a stew with sweet potatoes, garbanzos, onions, garlic, ginger, red wine, cinnamon, cumin, paprika, red pepper flakes, chopped dried apricots, golden raisins, & sliced almonds. Probably higher in carbs than you would eat, but delicious & healthy. I gave Beau a kiss from you; he likes "the Bengal cat lady ". :o)

I love my sweet potatoes, and it is remarkable that after I eat a small one with dinner, my blood sugar is just fine. They are so tasty. I love the sweet potato fries, baked sweet potatoes, mashed sweet potatoes, etc. I really love candied yams from Thanksgiving, but I only eat those once a year. What's not to love?

I just bought some sweet potatoes on the way home from church to go with the pot roast....love, love, love sweet potatoes! Have a great rest of your Sunday!

Love 'em - used to bake them in the microwave and then cut them up and add on top of a veggies/salad dish - they were 'meaty' and gave a nice balance so the entire dish wasn't just 'cold'. I don't so much now because MH's nurse said too high in sugar - weird. Maybe I need to research them more / test him afterward to be sure before I abandon them all together.
