Sweet Potatoes and Yams are some of the best choices when preparing a meal that is heavy on flavor but light on fat and calories. My roasted sweet potatoes are so simple to make and with only a few ingredients! Just because you are trying to watch your waistline does not mean that you can’t enjoy something sweet. These healthy cinnamon sweet potatoes are a great dish to make for a party or to go with just about any meal. Ground cinnamon is a great ingredient to use when you want to prepare something sweet, but without all the sugar in most sweet recipes. I find myself making a large batch of these every week because they compliment the meals I prepare. Try them with the apples and pears! They add more sweetness to the dish without adding the calories. Enjoy!
