The Sweetest Day: Sweet Potato Steaks

I’ve got some shocking and sweet news for you!: Sweet potatoes do not belong to the potato family.
The sweet potato is a relative of the Morning Glory (Ipomoea Batatas), and its nutritional makeup is quite different than the white potato.
The sweet potato – a powerhouse of nutrients rich in anti-oxidants – is a first-rate provider of vitamin A and beta-carotene. The sweet potato contains significant amounts of vitamins C and E, is a great source of potassium, is fat and cholesterol free and high in fiber. The sweet potato has a low glycemic index which helps maintain steady blood glucose levels. This overlooked vegetable protects against heart disease, stroke, cancer and delays the progression of Alzheimer’s disease.
In 1992, the Center for Science in the Public Interest rated the nutritional value of vegetables. The sweet potato, a simple root vegetable, was rated the most nutritious of all.

Sweet potatoes are a great complement to any type of meat, poultry or fish. Add chunks of sweet potatoes to soups, stews or even chili. Peel or grate raw sweet potatoes into salads. My personal favorite: Start the day with a baked (or microwaved) sweet potato. Top it with low-fat plain yogurt and a little drizzle of honey.
Do not put sweet potatoes in your refrigerator unless they have first been cooked. They will quickly spoil. Best to keep them at room temperature. Coldness and wetness turn the sugars in sweet potatoes and change the taste. Plan on using within one week’s time.

Spiritual Weight Loss … from Suzie Winfrey?

Oprah from the Our Lady of Weight Loss Weight Loss Art GalleryA Tushkateer (Kick in the Tush Club member) sent me a super-sized motivational portion of a speech that Oprah Winfrey gave to the graduating class of 2007 at Howard University in Washington, D.C.
For those of you who have already seen it, read it and loved it, please take it in again, on a deeper level. Chew over the meaning! And for those of you who are reading this for the first time, get ready for a platterful of motivation! Digest every tasty morsel and comment below. Oprah’s words linger and satisfy!
“So here are a few things I want you to know that I know for sure. Don’t be afraid.
All you have to know is who you are. Because there is no such thing as failure.
There is no such thing as failure.
“What other people label or might try to call failure, I have learned is just God’s
way of pointing you in a new direction.
“Your calling isn’t something that somebody can tell you about. It’s what you feel.
It’s a part of your life force. It is the thing that gives you juice. The things
that are you supposed to do. And nobody can tell you what that is. You know it
inside yourself.
“You know, I come from good stock. Dr. Swygert was mentioning my grandmother who had a dream for me. And her dream was not a big dream. Her dream was that one day I could grow up — she used to say, I want you to grow up and get yourself some good white folks, because my grandmother was a maid and she worked for white folks her whole life.
“And her idea of having a big dream was to have white folks who at least treated her
with some dignity, who showed her a little bit respect. And she used to say, I want you to — I hope you get some good white folks that are kind to you. And I regret that she didn’t live past 1963 to see that I did grow up and get some really good white folks working for me.
“I spent eight years in Baltimore. I knew in those years in Baltimore that I was
unhappy being a television news reporter. But the voice of my father, who thought
he knew what I was supposed to do was in my head. He said don’t you give up that
job, girl. You’re never going to make $25,000 in one year. That’s my father’s
dream for me. But God could dream a bigger dream than you can dream for yourself.
And so I tried to live in the space of God’s dream. And the television executives
told me when I was in Baltimore that I was just — it was too much. I was too big,
and I was too black.
“They told me that I was too engaged, that I was too emotional, I was too — too much
for the news and so they put me on a talk show one day just to run out my contract.
And that was the beginning of my story. So I say, even when things are difficult,
be grateful. Honor your calling; don’t worry about how successful you will be.
Don’t worry about it. Focus on how significant you can be in service and the
success will take care of itself. And always take a stand for yourself. Your values,
you are defined by what you stand for. Your integrity is not for sale.
“From the very beginning of my career in Baltimore, and I walked in the room and all
of the men in the room said to me you need to change your name, because nobody is
going to remember your name. You need to change your name and I said what do you
want me to change it to? They said we think Susie is a good name. Susie is a friendly
name. Susie is a name that people will remember. People can relate to Susie. I said
I think I’m going to keep my name if people remember it or not. It is my name. You
have to be willing to stand up for what you believe in. If I — if I could count the
number of times I have been asked to compromise and sell out myself for one reason
or another, I would be a billionaire 10 times over. My integrity is not for sale
and neither is yours.”

All Is Forgiven, Move On book coverGreg, most recently, interviewed a very inspiring, creative and lively author! ME!!!

Inside Personal Growth is a great resource, a fabulous place to visit if you are interested in learning more about how you can improve every facet of yourself and your life!
Here follows an excerpt from Greg’s interview with me and links to the podcast et al! Enjoy!!
“What a wonderful interview with a very inspiring, creative and lively author! Janice Taylor is one of the country’s leading health and wellness coaches, and she writes from personal experience. In her new book, “All is Forgiven, Move On“, Janice writes about her personal bout with weight loss and how she finally came to the point of acceptance and forgiving herself. This shift in her mindset has provided her the inner strength and ability to not only lose the weight, but to keep it off for years.
She explains that to change our bodies we need to radically shift our attitude-get out of our ruts, forgive ourselves for past sins, and move on with a positive outlook. In her book she offers 101 forgiving, fun and fat-burning steps along the road to weight loss to help readers recharge and stay inspired when the journey get rocky. Each of the steps in the book ends with a “point of view” -a fresh perspective on weight loss-and includes advice and activities.
“All Is Forgiven, Move On” is loaded with wonderful art, recipes and exercises that will engage the reader and get you moving in the right direction with your weight release program. I have personally reviewed many books on weight loss, and this is undoubtedly the most creative, fun and engaging book that I have ever reviewed. When you pick up “All is Forgiven, Move On” you realize that Janice has put her heart and soul into the message and really wants to help people learn how to love themselves, and lose weight.” . . . .

The color orange: dieter’s friend or foe?

The Color Orange: Our Lady of Weight Loss wants to know ... friend or foe?The color orange represents the changing of the seasons. It is a color on the edge – on the threshold – of change. Orange transports us from the hot dog days (not hotdog days) of summer to the fragrant first oranges and mandarins of the fall.
Orange is the color of October sunsets, and it evokes images of autumn leaves, pumpkins, and together with the color Black, Halloween.
Orange – a mixture of red and yellow – is a brilliant and dazzling color. It symbolizes energy, warmth, and the sun. Orange commands attention as does red, but with the presence of affable yellow, orange gives way to a slightly less intense experience.
Be forewarned!!! Orange is a stimulant. It stimulates emotions, thoughts, conversation and even appetite. With Halloween upon us and its pumpkins piled high at every green market, perched on every doorstep, along with those mountains of haunting little orange devils called candy corn found at every turn of the supermarket, it’s no wonder we’re in danger of caving-in to the call of the candy-filled Jack-O-Lantern.
Stay strong my friends. Limit your treats, lest Halloween haunt you for months to come.
Fun Orange Facts a.k.a. faToids!!!

  • In Ireland, the color orange is associated with the protestant religion.
  • Black boxes on airplanes are painted orange so they are more visible to the human eye. (Why not call them orange boxes?)
  • If you dream in orange, you can expect an unexpected change in your life! (Expect the unexpected, I always say.)
  • Orange has the optical illusion of making objects look like they are in the foreground, whether they are or not.
  • Orange Blossoms are a symbol of love.
  • Orange is the color of October.
