This autumn I seriously cannot get enough of starchy carbs! Surely I gained a couple of pounds, but I feel it is inevitable with the weather getting colder and the appetite for thick, filling foods growing proportionally!

The great thing about sweet potatoes is they give you this filling satisfaction yet they are considered ‘low carb’!

So in case you are a bit of a health nut, worried about your weight going up during winter, you can indulge in recipes like this one without feeling too guilty about it!

Sweet potatoes can be dressed up with all sorts of delicious things from tangy cranberry sauce to fluffy marshmallows. This recipe, however, lets the natural flavor of sweet potato shine, elevating it with just a few select seasonings like cinnamon, turmeric, thyme, salt, and pepper. Just a quick toss, some time in the oven, and voila!

A delectable side dish you will use time and time again.
