Yummy Yogi Yams
The truth is there's really no way to improve a sweet potato or yam. Whether you prefer one or the other, both are a super healthy sweet treat that eats like a meal. You can add toppings, like you might on a baked potato. But instead of relying on the old standards, like sugar and marshmallows, try a new method. Choose ingredients that not only alter the taste, but also significantly increase your health benefits. Bake your tubers in a straightforward manner and set out a tray of these delicious, nutritious toppings. For best results, try all three!
Cinnamon: You know what it can do for toast, but this time there’s no need to add sugar!
Clarified butter (ghee): Not just for lobster anymore, you can buy this product pre-made, or make your own from butter in your fridge. Simply bring to a low boil and skim the white floaters from the top. This process removes much of the fat and significantly lowers the cholesterol in your spread.
Ginger: Great for the heart, immune and digestive systems. Spice up your potato with some finely minced ginger root. It’s the perfect balance to the sweet and will help you digest your meal!
