baked cinnamon sweet potatoes

there is something about carbs to me that really is the definition of comfort food.
and yet for years i've steered clear of pasta and the like, just for health reasons.
so when i want to eat something that i feel almost as guilty about - i turn to potatoes!
they give you that same comfort food satisfaction and at least you're avoiding all the grain.

this recipe was simple yet deeply satisfying.
i ate this as a side dish one night when i was still on a soft foods diet,
and again for lunch the next day. confession: it almost tastes like dessert!

recipe from simply real health

serves 4

2 sweet potatoes or yams
2 tablespoons coconut oil or butter, melted
2 teaspoons cinnamon
sea salt


1. preheat oven to 425 degrees.

2. slice sweet potato in half lengthwise and rub with butter or melted coconut oil. 
place face down on a baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes, or until easily poked with a fork. 

3. remove from oven, flip potatoes, flesh side up, and mash the insides
with more melted coconut oil, cinnamon. sprinkle with sea salt.

i found it was easier to scoop the insides of the potato out, mash them
together with the extra ingredients, then place back inside the skin.

3. serve warm and enjoy!
