Benefits of Yams

Blood Sugar and Weight Control

Yamsand complex carbohydrates and fiber deliver the goods gradually, slowing the rate at which their sugars are released and absorbed into the bloodstream. In addition, because theyandre rich in fiber, yams fill you up without filling out your hips and waistline. And one more benefit, yams are a good source of manganese, a trace mineral that helps with carbohydrate metabolism and is a cofactor in a number of enzymes important in energy production and antioxidant defenses.

Prepositions

Weather conditions


Look at this list of common weather words. Notice that it is very common to form adjectives by adding -y.



Note: When it rains for a short period of time, we call it a shower, e.g. We had several showers yesterday afternoon.
When it is raining a lot we often say its pouring or its pouring with rain. This phrase is much more common than its raining cats and dogs, which many students seem to learn.

Temperature




People round the world have different ideas about temperature:
5C (five degrees centigrade) is freezing for many Brazilians.
-10C (minus ten degrees or ten degrees below zero) is very cold but quite normal in the mountains in Switzerland during the winter when it usually snows a lot.
30-35C is boiling for England and very unusual, but it is very common in parts of Spain during the summer.
