Wellness Tip
Breakfast
Dieticians recommends eating something for breakfast each day. If you normally skip this meal, consider trying to eat breakfast at least 3 days next week. Quick and healthy choices include dry whole grain cereal, dried or fresh fruit, whole wheat toast lightly spread with peanut butter, low fat yogurt, soy milk, a small piece of cheese, or oatmeal. It is not necessary to eat a lot of volume or a lot of fat, but eating something for breakfast can help maintain better energy during the morning hours.

Recipe
Sweet Potato Oatmeal Energy Bars
Category: Snacks
Description: A really delicious good-for-you dessert.
It seems strange to add sweet potatoes to a bar but because I love sweet potatoes, this recipe caught my eye. Not only are sweet potatoes readily available, inexpensive, and delicious, there are many other reasons to love these yummy vegetables.
Sweet Potatoes Are Highly Nutritious -
The Health Benefits of Sweet Potatoes are that they contain vitamin A, vitamin C, manganese, fiber, B vitamins, potassium and even iron. In fact, Whole Foods considers sweet potatoes one of the healthiest vegetables we eat. A medium sized sweet potato contains more than your daily requirement of vitamin A, nearly a third the vitamin C you need, almost 15 percent of your daily dietary fiber intake and 10 percent of the necessary potassium. Sweet potatoes may even protect cigarette smokers and those who live with them from emphysema by virtue of its vitamin A, as cigarette smoke creates a deficiency of this vitamin. This deficiency may be one of the causes of emphysema. Quitting smoking would be best, but eating plenty of sweet potatoes while you work on it may save your life.
