The Great Indoors: Easy and healthy Thanksgiving sweet potatoes

Just about everyone has that dish at Thanksgiving that doesn't really float their boat or rather gobble their turkey. For me, it's sweet potatoes. Every time they get passed, I take the obligatory tablespoon full just to be nice. But I usually don't even finish the little bit I take.

Maybe it's because they're covered in marshmallows and brown sugar. It's all just a big ooey, gooey, fattening mess to me.

That's why I was pleased when She Says editor Heidi Shaffer mentioned that she had a sweet potato recipe for Thanksgiving that was both easy and healthy. Not to mention not ooey or gooey. It's become a staple for her family and it couldn't be much more simple.

Heidi's Easy and Healthy Sweet Potatoes

2 Large raw sweet potatoes – peeled and chunked into 1” squares

2 Granny Smith apples – peeled and chunked

1 can unsweetened pineapple chunks – drained

May also add ½ cup Craisins

Place all ingredients into greased 2 quart baking dish. Bake at 350 for 1 hour or until sweet potatoes are done
