Quick Ones>>>>For the Forward Thinker

Sweet Potato (Yam)

The darker the color, the higher in vitamin content. Sweet potatoes are one of the greatest sources of beta-carotene. They are plenteous in vitamin C, potassium, carbohydrates, calcium and a good source of fiber. History has shown that people can live exclusively on sweet potatoes and remain healthy and strong. Carrot and sweet potato juice is tasty and outstanding for complexion. Yam can be added to any fruit juice, giving the juice a smooth, milkshake-like taste.

Look for firm, not too large yams that are tapered at both ends. Skin should be smooth without brown spots. Will store in the refrigerator for two weeks.
