And, the winner is ...

Marguerite Ednie received a copy of The Blue Zones: Lessons for Living Longer From the People Who've Lived the Longest for her sweet potato recipe-- so simple yet so satisfying:


Scrub/wash sweet potatoes. Prick with a fork. 
Bake at 350/375 degrees, 45-60 minutes 'til tender.
Split in half. Mash insides with fork; drizzle with tahini, fresh lemon juice and cracked black pepper

Did you know?

Sweet Potatoes are high in fiber, vitamins A + C, potassium, & folic acid. They're a staple of the traditional Okinawan diet (a Blue Zone). Before World War II (and the onslaught of western diets), Okinawans got a whopping 70% of daily calories from sweet potatoes!

Dan Buettner reports: Okinawans eat purple sweet potatoes, including the leaves--eaten as greens in miso soup. Like other sweet potatoes, they contain anti-oxidants, called sporamin, which possess a variety of potent anti-aging properties.
