Article by the RX review…

 Sweet Potatoes may be one of nature’s richest sources of essential vitamins and minerals and is pretty much a staple in our house.

This large starchy, vegetable not only tastes like a naughty treat but it boasts numerous health benefits. Here are five simple reasons why it is well worth sneaking into your diet.

1.  Rich in beta-carotene. Orange sweet potatoes contain large amounts of beta-carotene. Beta-carotene is a pigment found in vegetables which provide Vitamin A. Vitamin A is vital to maintain and improve retinal health and bone strength.

2. They are another good source of vitamin C. Sweet potatoes are rich in Vitamin C. As well as warding off cold and flu, Vitamin C assists in the production of collagen which keeps the skin looking youthful (for the ladies out there).

3.  They contain Vitamin D. So it seems the Sun is not the only source of Vitamin D. Sweet potatoes contain vitamin D which, boosts immunity, increases energy and balances mood. Restoring that desirable Zen demeanour.

4. Sweet potatoes are high in iron. Being anemic, I have a special appreciation for this health benefit. This essential mineral is vital in producing energy but it can also help ward off stress, no doubt doing wonders for cortisol levels.

5.  They are a good source of magnesium. Magnesium is a relaxation mineral. If like me, you suffer from migraines you have probably been told at one point or another that you should supplement your diet with magnesium tablets, powder or both. Well what a better way than to get the essential mineral through nature’s source. Magnesium is also necessary for healthy artery, blood, bone, heart, muscle, and nerve function.

So regardless if you bake them, boil them, mash them or just stash them in your pantry for later, there are five more reasons to add them to your diet.

Also a reminder that the olympic lifting session is on tomorrow at 10am..

Strength WOD

Push Press


between each set of push press run 400m. Goal is to keep a steady pace and not walk. The runs aren’t for time but I expect you to still push at about 85% of your fastest 400m pace.
