The Sweet Potato

The sweet potato is good for the eliminative system, but a little more difficult to digest than the white potato.  It contains a a lot of vitamin A and is a good source of niacin.

The Lime

Limes are good for the relief of arthritis because they have such a high vitamin C content.  Limes are one of the most alkalizing foods.


Cilantro is a herb, referred to as Chinese parsley.  It has anti-inflammatory benefits and is known to help remove heavy metals.  It is  a good source of magnesium and iron.

Yield:  4 Servings

4 sweet potatoes
2-3 limes
1/4 bunch of cilantro
1/8 teaspoon Himalayan Pink or Celtic Salt
Coconut oil


1.  Wash sweet potatoes and bake them whole, in their skins, at 375 degrees until tender, about 40 minutes.

2.  Wash and chop cilantro leaves.

3.  When sweet potatoes are done, slit open skin and place on serving plate.  Season with salt, a dollop of coconut oil.

4.  If you like, then squeeze fresh lime juice over, and shower with cilantro leaves.
