Sweet Potato Is Morning Glory



I speed-walked 7,700 steps in a little under one hour, a new record for me. A woman I passed said, "Gosh, you are fast!"

I must refuel in a very healthful way. I decided to replace the horsepower I produced with a high-protein breakfast: two cage-free, organic brown eggs, and fresh, wild-caught Alaskan cod, scrambled.

A colleague gave me half a dozen REAL organic eggs from her "coop". Her three hens are beautiful and super-intelligent. Their feathers shine as if she washes them with expensive shampoo and conditioner.

Breakfast: I used to make cubed potatoes with white potatoes. Restaurants called them peasant potatoes, which caused me to dislike them. However, I renamed them PLEASANT potatoes, and I have loved to prepare them ever since. Now I prepare them with the more nutritious sweet potato.

According to WebMD, sweet potatoes belong in the Morning Glory family. Sweet potatoes, the superfood, contain antioxidants, carotenoids (against cancer), lowers LDL ("bad" cholesterol), control obesity and muscular degeneration, and have compounds against diabetes. In addition, sweet potatoes contain Vitamins A (400% of daily allowed quantity), C, and D, and magnesium, phosphorous, Thiamin, and zinc. They support heart and kidney health.

People underappreciate codfish. As a Nigerian, I love cod (A.K.A. stockfish). I love fresh cod even more. I use it in just about everything, especially in okra soap. Healthline provides a list of essential nutritional information on the wild-caught Alaskan cod. It is high in lean protein, is healthful, flavorful, and nutritious. Cod contains Vitamins A, B-6, B-12, C, and E, Niacin, phosphorous, potassium, Omega-3, Omega-6, is low in mercury (less than tuna), low in fat, and contains the rare selenium.
