Hi there Zarla curious what are you seasoning the potato with or rubbing it down with before baking in the oven, cause I want something different than my usual walnut oil and ginger rub . . . ?

@enlightenedpsych2 Hi there! I use salt, pepper, and a bit of olive oil and make them under medium heat for 30 minutes. I haven't used ginger or garlic powder yet, but I would love to try.

Good post with valuable info BUT I must add that for women under the age of 50 who are STILL trying to get pregnant, eating too many sweet potatoes which have estrogen could be problematic for the reproductive system and how hormones might interrupt the possibility to conceive or make it impossible; so be careful how you post this stuff making sure you let either of the genders know how much or how little should be ingested

Hey Michael just curious if you weight lift DOES the sweet potato having more estrogenic properties within its genetic makeup, curtail any need for power lifting because this particular tuber vegetable root actually sculpts the male physique, or so I have read ?
