You already know that February is National Heart Health Month and National Fiber Focus Month. Not because we’ve been shoving steel cut oats down your throat or anything

But did you also know that there is a day in February devoted to Dog Biscuits? We’re going to selectively forget that we even read that (don’t get us wrong – we have a little four pound furry family member ourselves), and focus instead on the fact that February is Sweet Potato Month by picking our 30 favorite sweet potato submissions from the site (clickable images above). Makes sense, of course, since sweet potatoes are high in fiber, heart- and whole body-healthy, and heck, you can even make a pie with them (it’s Great American Pies Month).

February has a lot of food holidays — at least 28, and every four years, Surf and Turf Day on February 29th.

Check out the “holidays” below, calendar format first, list after.

I’m ashamed to say that I didn’t know it was “National Sweet Potato Month”. That makes the month of February even more special!
I love your top 30 photos. My favorite just might be the sweet potato sushi. I made tempeh sweet potato sushi for the first episode of my homemade cooking show–on my blog!
