Sweet potatoes and music by Joseph Brown from Satisvibes

What’s GREAT at the Market?


So quick and easy to prepare it  has to be one of the most versatile vegies.  It is the sweet potato and as http://australiansweetpotatoes.com.au/ says it can supercharge your meal. Roasted, mashed, stuffed, barbecued or fried it adds a beautiful sweetness to your meal while adding lots of nutritional value too. The orange-fleshed sweet potatoes is possibly one of nature’s unsurpassed sources of beta-carotene and the purple-fleshed sweet potato contains anthocyanins that provide important antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and that is just the beginning.


According to http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=foodspice&dbid=64

one difficulty in describing the health benefits of sweet potatoes is knowing where to begin. There are a surprising number of nutrient categories responsible for the health benefits of this under-appreciated tuber. Among these categories are antioxidants, anti-inflammatory nutrients, and blood sugar-regulating nutrients. Each category brings with it valuable health benefits.

And everything tastes even better with olive oil to dress and a few olives sprinkled over it so try some Grumpy Grandmas today at our Spice Palace stall.
