sweet potato bliss

Wanna make some sweet potatoes tonight?  Here's a great way to do it.  Peel a big raw sweet potato and cut into thick half-inch slices.  Fry in a shallow layer of coconut oil, both sides, until light brown.  Place in a 13x9" baking stone (single or double layer of potato slices).  Sprinkle with sea salt.  Pour apple mixture on top and bake at 375 degrees for 30 min.  Almost like dessert.
Here's the recipe for the apple mixture: 3 tart apples peeled and diced, 1/2 cup broken pecans, 1/4 c. melted butter, 1/4 c. maple syrup, 1 tsp. cinnamon... all mixed up together.  Enjoy!
Here's the nutrition information on a sweet potato:  This food is low in Sodium, and very low in Saturated Fat and Cholesterol. It is also a good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin B6 and Potassium, and a very good source of Vitamin A, Vitamin C and Manganese.
Live well!
