What’s your usual holiday plan??  Do you…

  • make healthy dishes to share to balance out other foods…or…
  • do it up with as much of the not as healthy stuff?

I like to make things that are pretty close to what I’d eat usual.  I love sweet potatoes.  I typically have them with just cinnamon…they don’t need much else!  But so many holiday celebrations have them with sugar, syrup, marshmallows, etc.  I’m all for worthwhile indulgences on holidays, but sweet potatoes are so delicious without all that!  I’d rather use my splurges elsewhere!

But, I figured sweet potatoes at Thanksgiving should be a little special.  So here’s what I brought!  Still super easy…you know me, I’m not big on complicated recipes!

Roasted Sweet Potatoes

2 medium sweet potatoes, cubed (I used 6…just increase the rest for how many sweet potatoes you’re using)
1 tsp olive oil
1 Tbsp chili powder
1 Tbsp cinnamon

Instructions:
Preheat oven to 400.
In a large bowl, drizzle olive oil over sweet potatoes.  Add cinnamon and chili powder and stir, shake or toss until coated.
Spread on a baking sheet and cook for 30 minutes, stirring about halfway through.

Easy and was a big hit!!
