There was a problem
Sweet, sweet potatoes. In Canada we often refer to them erroneously as yams, which are actually a tropical root vegetable.
Not only are they very nutritious, but organic sweet potatoes are extremely delicious, and unlike regular potatoes - they're sweet! But don't worry, the higher fibre content means they still have a lower glycemic index than a regular yellow potato! Organic sweet potatoes are great mashed, in soups, burritos, with rice and in salads. Store them in a cool, dark and dry space, preferable around 8-14 degrees celcius. Some people recommend storing them wrapped in newspaper for very long-term storage.
As guilt-free as eggs get. This cooperative of Amish farmers in Aylmer, Ontario raises hens in small flocks of 100 to 500 birds in tents on pasture. Weather permitting, tent doors are left open. These happy hens eat grass or organic GMO-free grain and veggie scraps, with full access to nest boxes and perches – though the eggs themselves are not certified organic these are some happy eggs!
