I was just curious about the yam/sweet potatoe comparison. I have incorporated sweet potatoes into our diet on a more frequent basis,.....at least I think they are sweet potatoes? the insides are bright orange, are they different in yams? Also, are yams harmful to our type vs. sweet potaoes being beneficial?We have a nice way to prepare them, wash and slice up into sticks like french fries, spray with olive oil spray, and sprinkle on some of the spices such as chili, or paprika, or cayenne if you like the taste, and then spread out on a baking sheet. bake at 400 for approx. half an hour. The sweet potatoes are delicious this way, and taste a lot better than when simply baked and mushy.

anna-that recipe sounds really good. I used to something similar to regular potatoes only coating them with an egg white, olive oil and favourite spice mixture. They were especially yummalicious the next day so when I made a batch I made sure I cooked up lots. Yes, sweet potatoes are the more orange coloured tuber. Yams are neutral (according to the encyclopedia) while sweet potatoes are beneficial for secretors and neutral for nonnies.
Not sure if this subject is going to stay on this thread or not. One thing about this forum is you can start your own thread. At the bottom of the page to the left is a little box that says "new thread" and you just click on it and go from there. You even get to put in your own title. Remember, lower case letters or "daddy taz" won't like that. (It just means that you are shouting and he needs his rest as he is sleeping when the other half of the world is awake on here).

I'm no expert Pierre, but if it works for you and all those health benefits came to you, drink the coffee! I think you grew the 1/2 inch from the cartrilige that went in your knees. Your story was quite the read and inspiration. By the way is that your D___b A_s brother -in -law? Am I the only one that caught that or am I the only one twisted enough to think that?
Listen, this is what I think: I think we can't go around measuring our goodness by what we don't do, by what we deny ourselves, what we resist, and who we exclude. I think we've got to measure goodness by what we embrace, what we create, and who we include. Pere Henri (Chocolat)
