Pot pie is one of those comfort foods that warms our bellies and bones during the cold winter months. My version is filled with nourishing sweet potatoes and black beans loaded with fiber, antioxidants and healthy protein. The cornmeal crust complements the flavors and spices perfectly, while also making this dish a crowd-pleaser, especially if you have gluten-free guests!

French fries with zero grams of fat? That’s the magic of oven-baking and using creative, healthy substitutions for the usual heavy oils. In this recipe, sweet potato wedges are tossed with pure vanilla and a light sprinkling of cinnamon, then baked to crispy, chewy perfection. Not only are they packed with fiber, vitamin C and potassium, an entire serving contains just 144 calories!
Have just one sweet potato left in your pantry? This recipe is an easy way to put it to good use! Cube and sauté your lonely spud with some celery and onion, then simmer in vegetable broth before blending smooth. Almost as easy as opening a can—and you get to spoon up fresh flavor and whole food nutrition with every bite!
Is there a picky eater in your family? A vegetarian? A vegan? Everyone can be happy at dinner on taco night! Start off by sautéing some veggies—use fresh favorites or take this opportunity to “clean out” your refrigerator’s produce drawer. From here, you can go meatless or brown up some beef or buffalo meat—your choice. Serve with seasoned brown rice and toppings your troop loves! I like to lay out whole wheat tortillas, local raw goat cheese, avocado, shredded cabbage and chopped tomato.
Potato salad – it’s the preferred side dish of backyard barbeques, potlucks and warm-weather celebrations. But instead of the old egg-mayo-potato combination, why not change things up by bringing this sweet, spicy and flavorful creation to your next get-together? Your friends and family are guaranteed to love it!
What do you get when you take a steamy, baked sweet potato, fluff it lightly with a fork and add a dollop of rich, nutty sunflower butter? An empty plate, of course! Serve this hearty, healthy mash in the skin, or scoop it out and pile high on a gluten-free roll for a sensational sandwich.
