Wellness Tip
Turmeric, More than a Spice
Turmeric is a spice commonly used in foods such as curry powders, mustards and cheeses. New evidence suggests that its active ingredient, curcumin, might prevent or treat some diseases. The National Institutes of Health is recruiting patients for clinical trials to test curcumin against pancreatic cancer, multiple myeloma (a form of cancer), Alzheimer's and colorectal cancer. Curcumin is not thought to be toxic but high doses or long-term use may cause indigestion. Stay tuned for future updates.

Recipe
Sweet Potato Colcannon with Kale
Category: Side Dishes
Description: An Irish slant on a Christmas or Thanksgiving side with a bit of a kick!
Traditionally in North America you might have sweet potatoes with marshmallows, roasted or in a casserole, so why not tip your hat to the Irish flag and create this Irish sweet potato colcannon. Traditionally colcannon is eaten at Halloween but it’s a wonderful dish to have at any time.

Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene). They are also a very good source of vitamin C, manganese, copper, pantothenic acid and vitamin B6. Additionally, they are a good source of potassium, dietary fiber, niacin, vitamin B1, vitamin B2 and phosphorus.

Sweet potatoes are naturally sweet-tasting but their natural sugars are slowly released into the bloodstream, helping to ensure a balanced and regular source of energy, without the blood sugar spikes linked to fatigue and weight gain.

Note: Grocery stores often have two types of labelling for sweet potatoes.
Yam — Soft sweet potato with a copper skin and deep orange flesh.
Sweet potato — Firm sweet potato with golden skin and lighter flesh.
