Saweeeet Potato

In the beginning of my paleo/primal diet I thought it was going to be all plant based foods and meat for my meals.  No more rice, noodles, potatoes or bread.  That leaves a person usually unsatisfied and hungry pretty quick even though it’s probably a good sign of healthy digestion.

It’s not exactly low carb but for whatever reason it’s anti-inflammatory, high in fibre and it tastes damn good.  The sweet potato!  Not really good for weight loss but I’m looking to gain some so there’s a plus.  I guess it’s some kind of super potato cause all the other ones don’t have the same anti-inflammatory properties.  How do I know this is true?  Cause they said so and they are never wrong.

The Okinawan’s  include sweet potatoes as their staple and they live for like ever.  They live so long and healthy, Armageddon won’t even get them.  Although, they eat a different kind, a purple kind.    No matter what it’s gotta be better than the grains we eat especially the refined stuff.

Other anti-inflammatory foods include broccoli, wild salmon, extra virgin olive oil, blueberries and crack.  Not crack.  How can any food be on a list with those guys and not be good for you?  Don’t eat the skin though, it apparently isn’t that great for you and it will show up in your crap like corn.  I swear.  Try it if you don’t believe me.
