 h1. Dear readers,

 At Culinate, we're working to support the efforts of people who want to eat with more awareness. That's a mouthful, I know, but what it really means is that if you're looking to strike a balance between flavor and health — your personal health as well as that of the larger community — we're here for you. 

 Which brings me to the amazing sweet potato. This marvelous tuber tastes good (sweet-potato chips, anyone?) and packs a nutritional wallop. Sweet potatoes are often available at farmers' markets (remember, supporting local agriculture is healthy for the community) and are hearty enough to serve as a meat alternative (less meat means less livestock, which can help reduce carbon emissions). So I say, long live the sweet potato! 

 For more sugary treats, check out the Sweet 16 blog, where we'll put up a new candy or cookie recipe every day for the next few weeks and give away sweet daily prizes, too.
