Sweet potatoes are nutritious, packing a good amount of vitamin A, vitamin C, and manganese into each delicious serving.

I eat a sweet potato with or without brown sugar-cinnamon butter. The tender, melt-in-your-mouth sweet potatoes found at restaurants do not compete with the allure of this irresistibly fluffy interior.

They also have anticancer properties and may promote immune function and other health benefits. Sweet potatoes are sweet, starchy root vegetables that are grown worldwide

There is an old saying. You are what you eat. It originally appeared in 1826 when Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin, a French lawyer, politician, and famous gastronome, wrote ''Dis-moi ce que tu manges, je te dirai ce que tu es'', which translates to 'Tell me what you eat and I will tell you what you are'

'Hippocrates, the Greek physician, in the year 440 BC said, “Let food be thy medicine and let thy medicine be food”.

VICTORY GARDEN

American Victory Gardens were planted across the United States during World Wars I and II with great success.

Back in 1917, during World War 1, the National War Garden Commission promoted home gardening in order to free up crops to feed soldiers who were fighting overseas. 

They inspired students—calling them “soldiers of the soil”—to do their part in the war and help plant Liberty Gardens. When it started to look like the US and its allies would win the war, the name of the gardens was changed to Victory Gardens.

Humans have scavenged and eaten animal eggs for millions of years. Humans in Southeast Asia had domesticated chickens and harvested their eggs for food by 1500 BCE. The most widely consumed eggs are those of fowl, especially chickens.

Things have gotten so intense at many major markets that at some stores like BJ’s and Costco that shoppers were going nuts looking for eggs.

Everyone loves BJs but not if they run out of eggs. We were on an egg hunt and looked all over the place but scrambled.

CityImages does not know if the entire east coast or the #USA has run low on eggs, but we are issuing this serious shell game warning.

We’re not Yolking. As supermarket journeys continue to be increasingly expensive thanks to the great problem among many others, some folks have taken to hoarding yolks and egg smuggling.

Being a good leader is like being a great gardener. It is not just measured by the length of time spent that makes them great.

A great gardener tends to have a passion for certain elements of gardening be it design, color schemes, textures, or types of foliage, flowers, or species of plants.

They seem to get excited when you mention something interesting about their garden or something they personally take pride in establishing.
