Citrus Mashed Sweet Potatoes Recipe

The Holidays are quickly approaching and most of us will be eating way too much.  Holiday dinners and parties can really pack on the pounds.  How do you survive the Holidays if you are watching your calories or don’t want to eat a lot of sugar?

You don’t have to give up your traditional menu items, simply make them better.  One way you can spruce up your sweet potatoes (and cut the sugar) is to simply mash them and add a little bit of honey and orange zest.    

You will will have a fresh, healthy side dish, without the brown sugar and marshmallows.  Spruce them up even more by adding cinnamon or some toasted pecans.
