Sweet potato casseroleCourtesy Liz Weiss
You know the difference between sweet potatoes and yams, right? Dietitian Liz Weiss, of LizsHealthyTable.com shares this tip for making this popular side dish a healthier option: “Who needs mini marshmallows when you can add crunchy, nutrient-rich pecans to the top of this lightened-up Turkey Day casserole? At Thanksgiving, I like to fill my plate with a little bit of this and a little bit of that. So even though I say this casserole serves eight, at the holidays, it will likely yield 10 servings.” You can get the full recipe found on Liz’s website.
