With the holiday's coming there's going to be a lot of delicious food. Maybe you've been doing some holiday cooking or some holiday baking.


Regardless of what your favourite part of Christmas dinner is, I have a recipe that will add flavour and nutrients to your plate!


Health benefits of sweet potatoes


Sweet potatoes aren't just delicious, they're nutritious and have many health benefits as well. They're a great source of fibre, vitamins, and minerals, they promote gut health, support brain function and you're immune system, and support healthy vision.


The pecans in this dish also have a number of benefits. Pecans are full of protein, healthy fats, and fibre which keep you feeling fuller longer. They're also a great source of calcium, megnesium, and potassium.
