Fun Fact

Did you know that your nose dries out in colder weather, and any crack in this delicate nasal passage gives bacteria an fast pass to your system.  The solution!!  Eat more sweet potatoes, they are rich in vitamin A, and this will help boost the cell health of your nasal passage and help the mucus membranes stay moist according to Susan M. Kleiner Ph.D., R.D.

The recommended daily dose is one sweet potato daily or if you are like me and don't particularly love sweet potatoes, try 1/2 C carrots, 3/4 C spinach, or 1 1/2 C squash to get the same vitamin A benefit.
