Don’t you just love the aroma of turkey roasting in the oven? It’s that time of year again when family and friends become priority and comfort food sneaks its way in, preparing us for the chilly season ahead.
Thanksgiving dinner, full of rich, buttery, flavorful dishes is a tradition that’s hard to pass up; but I’ll let you in on my secret weapon to add more nutritional value to the most anticipated meal of the year. Yup, you guessed it— the sweet potato! My trusty sidekick, the sweet potato is as versatile as ever. The options are endless: swap your regular mashed potatoes with sweet potatoes for naturally creamy spuds loaded with vitamins A and C; or bake your “pumpkin” pie with a twist! Remember, healthy doesn’t mean you have to skimp on the flavor. Tried-and-true, these are just a few ideas your family is sure to love.
While the sweet potato is clearly the star of this Thanksgiving show (second only to the turkey, of course), it can be the star of nearly any show! Using my Sweet Potato Tomato Sauce in meals all winter long is a great way to add a lot of flavor and a lot of nutrition without losing any of your favorite comfort food flavors. Added bonus? The kiddos will love it too! Check out my recipes here, or tell me about a fun one of your own!
Happy Thanksgiving from my family to yours! Xo, Natalia
