Warm Sweet Potato Salad

warm sweet potato salad 1I love sweet potatoes.  They are nutritionally equivalent to white potatoes but they add a lot more flavor which means you need less quantity to get better quality in terms of flavor.  If you want to add protein and make it a meal, throw in some chicken breast to make it more substantial.  Regardless, this recipe is a good low calorie healthy one with a bit of spice thrown in to help you keep warm in the cold winter months.  I got this one from http://deliciouslyella.com.  Enjoy!

Why You Can’t Be Trusted


There is a principle in the world of weight loss that is essential to helping you understand why people are unsuccessful at losing weight.  Human beings are extremely inaccurate in estimating their caloric intake.  By human beings, I mean you.  I also mean me, but I already read this so, I’m directing this to you.  I often hear people tell me that they “watch what they eat” or that they “eat healthy” and yet they cannot lose weight.   When pressed, they are almost never able to tell me exactly what this means.  This creates one of the greatest obstacles to weight loss.  People have absolutely no idea how many calories they are consuming.    Continue reading
