November – Fall – even though I can hardly see the color of leaves changing around ATX but with the temperature dropping, it is telling us to put on the fire, extra jacket and enjoy a cup of hot chocolate.

I love this season and of course everyone else does too. Since the holidays is around the corner, I’m conscious about food and being healthy (yes went to the doctor too lol).

Read about how great sweet potatoes can do for our body, here is my summary 9 things it has: vitamin B6, C, D, iron, Magnesium, potassium, natural sugar for bloodstream, high in carotenoids protect against the effects of aging and last you can anything with it like: cook, roast, puree, smoothie, steam, bake or grill….

I’m dedicating sweet potatoes for November. It has colors of autumn, it can be a reminder that we need to be good to our body, and of course it tastes yummy
