Recipe of the Month

Maple-Roasted Sweet Potatoes

-2 pounds small sweet potatoes (about 5), peeled and cut lengthwise into 1-inch wedges
  • -1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • - salt and ground black pepper
  • -1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • -1/2 tsp finely grated lemon zest
  • -Sea salt and freshly grated nutmeg, to taste, for serving


1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Toss the sweet potatoes on a large, foil-lined rimmed baking sheet with the oil; season, to taste, with salt and pepper. Roast the potatoes for 20 minutes.
2. Remove the pan from the oven and toss the potatoes with the syrup.
3. Back in the oven, roast, tossing twice, until the potatoes are beginning to brown and are tender, about 15 minutes more. To serve, sprinkle warm potatoes with freshly grated lemon zest, sea salt, and nutmeg to taste.

*Serves 6

Only a small bit of oil and maple syrup are needed to coat these thick wedges of potatoes.
Roasting them at a high temperature browns them well and deepens the flavors.
A fresh sprinkle of lemon zest adds flavor without fat.

Getting Slim in the Gym
Do you get overwhelmed when you walk into a workout facility and see an array of equipment, not knowing with ones you should use or how to use them? Don't worry, you aren't alone! Follow the link below for details on five of the most important pieces to incorporate into your weekly workout. Leading personal trainers agree that you should, if nothing else, use:
1. The Smith machine for squats, presses, chin-ups and more all in one spot.

2. The assisted pull-up to work your upper body.

3. The seated leg press for toning the lower body.

4. The seated cable row to target the arms, shoulders, chest, and back all at the same time.

5. The roman chair for improving core strength by lifting your own body weight against gravity.
