Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes are a delicious nutrient dense food and great choice for a side dish or snack.  My favorite way to eat them is below.  The sweet potato alone is only 100 calories/cup so it packs a lot of vital nutrients in a small package, making a really healthy snack or side dish.

I promise that that taste is better than the photo!

Stab the sweet potato with a knife, wrap in parchment and put it in the microwave for about 3 minutes.  Then finish cooking it in the oven heated to 375F for 40-50 minutes.  When it comes out, cut it in half, mash it up with a fork inside the skin and smear a couple small scoops of coconut oil on top.  Then sprinkle with sea salt, pepper and lots of cinnamon!
