Yams For Thanksgiving (Educational) - Poem by Spock the Vegan
Yams for Thanksgiving? Tell me why.
Do not be sad and please don't cry.
Yams have lots of vitamin C for fighting colds & flu,
and loads of minerals, so I'd eat them if I were you.
The large content of vitamin B6 shrinks the effects
of homocysteine to stop heart attacks and stroke. Complex
carbohydrates and fiber, allowing for slow uptake, they are imbued.
It keeps blood sugar levels even; It's a low glycemic index food.
While yams look like sweet potatoes, they're not even related.
The vitamin A when eating yams isn't as concentrated.
The antioxidants in yams are quite exceptional.
Other vitamins and natural minerals are plentiful.
There's a problem with yams that I need to reveal:
There may be toxins, so you need to cook and peel.
Perhaps it's best to eat sweet potatoes with flavor more mellow.
They have more carotenoids - you can tell ‘cause they're more yellow.
