The Sweet Potato
Ah yes, the sweet potato. The broccoli of root vegetables, the sweet potato eludes the diets of most people because of a poor marketing campaign.
It’s terribly misunderstood, which is quite because it’s one of the healthiest tastiest foods available. Many people associate sweet potatoes with the holidays either in a candied form or whipping into oblivion with cream.
But there are far better ways to cook this tuber, and you’d do well to include it among your meal stables. I know, I know: it seems weird to treat a sweet potato with such seriousness.
Much like a roast turkey, it seems unfathomable to most people that you can (and should) eat sweet potatoes nearly year-round.
Consider the facts about the Sweet Potato


Believe it or not, a sweet potato can be quite good for you whenever it isn’t being smothered in cream, marshmallows, or butter. Like with any root vegetable, the sweet potato is best when it’s been baked under high heat to soften and sweeten the insides.
A sweet potato baked in nothing else but a little olive oil will taste sweeter than you’d believe, much sweeter than any other root vegetable, and better yet it’s loaded with essential vitamins and minerals.
Not convinced? A single serving (about a cup’s worth) of baked sweet potato contains approximately the following amounts of nutritious goodness. It has more than half your day’s worth of vitamin C, a third of your daily intake of vitamin B6, and a whopping 700% of your vitamin A. A single serving also yields more than half your day’s worth of manganese, and more than a quarter of your suggested daily potassium intake. It also has over a quarter of your daily fiber and has far fewer calories than a regular potato of the russet variety. Again, this is in a single cup of baked sweet potato.
So in case I need to spell it out for you: eat more sweet potatoes! At the very least, you should try substituting them for whenever you’d normally eat an old-fashioned potato potato. And to help you ease into sweet potatoes, here’s a flavorful and healthy recipe that will win over even the staunchest doubters.
Quick recipe: Hasselback Sweet Potatoes
This recipe is adapted from a similar one on Serious Eats.
Ingredients:

5 cloves of garlic, minced
2 teaspoons chopped rosemary
Glug of olive oil
4 sweet potatoes
Salt and pepper

Start by setting your oven to 425-450 degrees. While the oven is preheating, get out two wooden spoons and your sharpest knife.
Set a wooden spoon on each side of a sweet potato lengthwise, and with your knife make perpendicular slices into the sweet potato until the blade hits the wooden spoons, leaving a little room for the slices to stick to the skin of the potato at the bottom. Repeat process for each sweet potato.
Mix the rosemary, garlic, and olive oil together in a small bowl, and spoon the mixture across each sweet potato, making sure that bits of rosemary and garlic fall into the slices.
Once the oven is preheated, place the sweet potatoes on a greased cookie sheet or baking pan for approximately 40 minutes or until crispy. Test the doneness of the sweet potato by sticking it with a toothpick or a knife. If the potato gives easily under pressure, then it’s ready.
Once it’s finished, serve immediately and enjoy!

Very nice. I am a crystal healer and have many types of quartz crystals. Crystals work very well with Reiki (both types of healing love each other). I have been drawn to stones all my life and consider them my best friends. Blessings for sharing this.

The Herpes virus is a difficult little bug; a so-called 'incurable' infection with painful skin lesions. The sores come and go, more frequently for some individuals than others, and often follow stressful life conditions where the immune system may be weakened. Allopathic medicine doesn't yet have a cure for this disease, only pills and creams that must be used regularly to keep outbreaks from recurring and to lessen their duration. Incurable, pa...

Our lymphatic system is our body’s immune system. The lymphatic fluid can become sluggish over time and dry skin brushing can be a lymphatic stimulant. Skin brushing helps exfoliate and invigorate our skin too.
It increases our blood supply to the area bringing with it nourishment and oxygen.
Our circulatory system has its own pump (our heart) to move our blood through our bodies but our lymphatic system does not. It relies primarily on our movement to assist it.
Typically, the more active we are the better condition our lymphatics are in.
Skin brushing helps move our lymph fluid and gives us a jump-start on our health.
Benefits:

Helps to shed dead skin cells to eliminate clogged pores, improve skin texture and promote cell renewal
Increases circulation and lymph movement to encourage metabolic waste elimination
Promotes optimal blood flow to the skin which improves muscle tone and promotes a more even distribution of fat deposits helping conditions such as cellulite
Stimulates the lymph canals which help drain toxins and mucous into the colon
Stimulates nerve endings in the skin which has a rejuvenating effect on the nervous system
Has a purifying effect on the entire body

Supplies:
* Natural bristle brush (do not use synthetic)

* Shower
Directions:
Always use a dry brush. Using a light touch make long strokes towards the heart, except on your abdomen where your strokes should be towards your groin.
Start with your arms and work your entire body ending with your toes. The total time spent can vary, but for the most part, ten minutes is enough. Once you’re done dry brushing take a warm shower. Enjoy the day!
If you use a loofah pad instead of the natural bristle brush, place it in the washer and dryer prior to use the first time. This will loosen the fibers and make it more effective.
Caution:
Do not brush to the point of making your skin raw or sore. If irritation occurs you may be using too much pressure.

The human race needs to now, more than ever, fast (cleanse) and subsequently celebrate renewal rather than engage in continual excess all the while taking “selfies” to capture and memorialize each shameless display of unabashed vanity.

I have to agree. I find that even members of my family are unkind to me when I have not acknowledged their important posting on facebook. I tell them that if it were that important then they could have picked up the telephone and delivered the message personally. Luckily the internet is helping to spread spiritual knowlegde at the same rate at which it develops this selfishness. The more we each write about the beauty of spiritual truth and acknowledge our love for all human beings (forgive them for they know not what they do.....) the more likely the truth will win out in the end. Blessings for sharing.

Did you ever consider to go to an energy healing therapist?
Why people are going to take chemical /synthetic medication ,for allmost every issue big or small, when all natural healing system is available from NATURE ?
Read labels before buy, eat or drink anything. Than think if you really need it .
What do you think about this?
