Do you know Sweet Potato may help your gut?

I love sweet potatoes but do you know eating sweet potatoes may help your gut?

Sweet potato is very rich in fiber. Sweet potato also contain antioxidants which helps with cultivating healthy gut bacteria including certain Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus species. Foods containing 20-33 grams of fiber per day may help with colon cancer and regular bowel movements. So next time sweet potato is on the menu take a helping.

Sweet potato is easy to prepare but first be sure to choose good sweet potatoes. Since sweet potato is a root when you purchase them quite a bit is discarded because the ends have to be removed. So when you are purchasing look for those without too many ends:

There are many great recipes with Sweet Potato :

  • You can peal and boil them. Cut in cubes after boiling and just add butter.
  • You can also cube after boiling and add your favorite sauce I like tamarind sauce.
  • Another great way is to slice and bake in a blend of ketchup, mustard and pepper. Add some Melongene, Green Salad and Baked Salmon.

Gluten Free Dumplings

I thought I would share with you today my tip for gluten free dumplings. You see I love dumplings in my soups and broths but the regular flour sometimes create havoc with my stomach.

If you are like me and love dumplings but suffer with your stomach or can’t digest the regular flour you would love this tip. As a matter of fact Saturdays are soup or broth days. When we order we say hold on the dumplings please. I wish the restaurant/take away eating place would provide gluten free dumplings.

Flour has a way of creating havoc with your digestive system. It is said that consuming flour may lead to arthritis, Alzheimer’s disease, heart disease and even cancer. It is also now being communicated that whole wheat flour elevates your blood sugar, cholesterol and also clogs the arteries. Why then do we consume so much flour?

The bread, the pizzas, pastries, cakes. We can’t do without these but we can explore alternatives similar to this one where I discovered that cassava dumplings is gluten free and works just as well as normal dumplings.

Cassava flour has no cholesterol, gluten free and low in carbs and sugars. Not as sticky as flour, just add water and you have good mix.

You can have a tasty gluten free Fish Broth in minutes.
