|The Link Between Smell and Food Choice|
|If you hold your nose while eating chocolate, you might have trouble identifying the chocolate flavor. This is because taste and smell are closely linked. Smell can account for up to 90% of your ability to detect the flavor of some foods. Those with a decline in the ability to smell due to allergies, medications or aging often eat foods containing higher amounts of salt or sugar. Consider using more spices like basil, cumin or chili powder to increase flavor and offset a decreased sense of smell. |

|Roasted Sweet Patatoes with a Touch of Spice|
|Category: Side Dishes|
Description: Did you know that sweet potatoes are a great source of fiber, beta-carotene, and vitamin E?
Sweet potatoes are good for you because they have high levels of beta carotene (the same vitamin found in carrots). They are a great source of fiber when eaten with the skin on. They provide much needed nutrients such as potassium, iron and vitamin B-6.
Sweet potatoes are fat-free and cholesterol-free, and they are loaded with antioxidants that can help prevent heart disease and cancer, bolster the immune system and even slow the aging process by promoting good vision and healthy skin. They have been recently reclassified as an “anti-diabetic” food. They are anti-inflammatory and can protect against emphysema. Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of copper, manganese, potassium, iron and vitamin B-6.
Sweet potatoes are a super food and they taste great! They are excellent accompaniments to poultry, beef, lamb or seafood. They can also be substituted in virtually any recipe that calls for apples, squash or white potatoes.
