Roasted Sweet Patatoes with a Touch of Spice 

Print Friendly 

Description:
Did you know that sweet potatoes are a great source of fiber, beta-carotene, and vitamin E?
Sweet potatoes are good for you because they have high levels of beta carotene (the same vitamin found in carrots). They are a great source of fiber when eaten with the skin on. They provide much needed nutrients such as potassium, iron and vitamin B-6.
Sweet potatoes are fat-free and cholesterol-free, and they are loaded with antioxidants that can help prevent heart disease and cancer, bolster the immune system and even slow the aging process by promoting good vision and healthy skin. They have been recently reclassified as an “anti-diabetic” food. They are anti-inflammatory and can protect against emphysema. Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of copper, manganese, potassium, iron and vitamin B-6.
Sweet potatoes are a super food and they taste great! They are excellent accompaniments to poultry, beef, lamb or seafood. They can also be substituted in virtually any recipe that calls for apples, squash or white potatoes.



Ingredients:
3 Sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into bite size cubes
2 tsp olive oil
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp of brown sugar (organic)
1 tsp of ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp of ground nutmeg
Pinch of ground ginger
Sea salt, to taste



Directions:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Coat a small baking dish with cooking spray.
Peel and dice the sweet potatoes into bite size cubes and place in the baking dish.
Melt butter in the microwave and pour over the potatoes along with the olive oil, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and salt.
Add more sugar or cinnamon if desired.
Toss to coat evenly.

Bake in the oven for 60 minutes

Stir the sweet potatoes once or twice during roasting.

Wellness Tip
Dressing for Outdoor Winter Exercise
Dress appropriately and comfortably for cold weather exercise. Multiple layers will initially keep you warm and you can easily remove them, one at a time, as your body heats up. Likewise, a hat prevents substantial heat loss through the head and can also be easily removed.

What is Intuitive Painting?
And What Does It Have to Do with Health and Wellness? Painting from our intuition is a way to listen in. To hear from all the divergent parts of ourselves: our child, that wants to play, be curious and full of wonder; the deep mystery of our soul's life; our desires and longings we have censored from the light and replaced with responsibility and control; our beliefs that have formed early in life and still direct our actions but are no longer useful to us.
