Season's Greetings!

Before we say good bye to 2015, Fitness Spark would like to wish you the best of health, fitness & happiness during this holiday season.

It's hard to believe but FitnessSpark*S* blog is one year old! Thank you for hanging with us for this long.  Your feedback makes it all worthwhile.  Keep the comments & questions coming & don't hesitate to e-mail!  We will be trying to compile an index of articles to make it easier to find what you are searching for.

Future topics coming up next year  -

  • How Exercise Might Help Us Fight Infection
  • Plant Based Eating - why it might helps with chronic disease....and my personal experience with this style of eating.  It's been interesting - I've lost 3 pounds already with out really "dieting".
  • Treadmill desks - best thing for everyday fitness?  Or not?
  • Maintaining mobility - pamper those feet!  Some simple steps & exercises you can do.
  • And more....

In the meantime, here's a reprint of Alex Starr's not too sweet Sweet Potato/Apricot casserole:

Sweet Potato and Apricot Casserole This is for those who like tart rather than sweet & sticky sweet potatoes. My grandkids LOVE these as do the adults.

1 lb. Can whole sweet potatoes or 4 medium size sweet potatoes - or buy fresh yams and cook them until just tender (yes, they are different from sweet potatoes and they are delicious)
3 T. undiluted frozen orange juice
3 T. melted butter
1 T. brown sugar
salt (to taste)
pinch of nutmeg
2 eggs
1/2 C. of chopped dried apricots

Mash sweet potatoes. Mix with O.J., butter, sugar and seasonings. Stir in unbeaten eggs and last, the pieces of apricot. Spoon into shallow buttered (or use PAM) casserole dish (glass). Bake 350 for 20-24 minutes or until brown and fluffy. Serves 4.  Double or triple, if you wish - just bake a bit longer.

Until next year - best wishes for the holidays & we hope you are able to spend quality time with family, friends & loved ones.
