Sweet Potato Casserole {Healthy}

Another classic Thanksgiving favorite…sweet potato casserole. I know people who wait for sweet potato casserole all year! You know you can have Thanksgiving food any day of the year? πŸ˜‰

I know that takes away from the fun of having holiday favorite foods. It just doesn’t seem right in the summertime.

In this recipe, you’ll use one of the easiest and healthiest ways to cook sweet potatoes!

This sweet potato casserole is free from refined sugar and is full of delicious ingredients. Quality matters!

Did you know pasture-raised eggs have more omega-3 and nutrients compared to factory farmed eggs? Even if it’s the holidays, you don’t have to sacrifice on your health.

If you are allergic to certain proteins in dairy, you can try ghee in this recipe, instead of butter.

I didn’t want to add “homemade marshmallows” on my list of things to do this year. So, I just chose the best option for store-bought marshmallows from Whole Foods. Honestly, they aren’t the best….they have ingredients that I’m not a huge fan of. Carrageenan and soy protein. But there isn’t a better store bought option….anyone looking for a business idea? πŸ˜‰

Enjoy! XO
