I personally have never had sweet potatoes except for on Thanksgiving and smothered in marshmallows. Since the New Year generally brings resolutions of better health and weight loss, this is a perfect side dish for your baked chicken or fish dishes, very flavorful and tender.
Coconut oil has many uses, from cooking to home remedies and household uses. Since it is a stable cooking oil, one can simply replace unhealthy oils in their diet with coconut oil. Since it is a solid most of the time at room temperature or when refrigerated, it can be a butter or margarine substitute for spreads or for baking. Some body uses: lotion, hair conditioner, chap stick, lubricant, face mask, shaving cream.
